    I think Vaughan goes alright most of the time tbh. Nasser is one of my favourites currently.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    It's amazing that there has been so few very good commentators / comments people on radio or television who were previously very good cricketers, (you almost have to go back to Benaud... I thought Gower was ok for a while, and even Ian Smith when he first came on the scene. But after a while they just seem to get stale or become cliches... Coney I like and in NZ terms he was a bit of a star but he's not quite in the category of cricketer of Chappell, Warne, Gavaskar etc. You have to wonder why the broadcasters bother. I would guess these big names cost a fair bit of money too, far more than some of the non-stars who happen to be good at talking about cricket (eg, Aggers and Marks on TMS, the late CMJ, Tony Cosier, and, er, that might be about it....)

    Say what you want about the bloke, but at least he has something resembling a brain and genuinely seems to enjoy and is knowledgeable about cricket. Which is more than what I can say about most of the Channel 9 team.

    Oops, and Jim Maxwell of course, when he's not being picked on by streams of gloating English commentators.

    I would say Chappell doesn't even come anywhere close to conveying a love of the game of cricket. He seems bitter and grumpy about the game.

    Adam Gilchrist. Now there's a bloke completely free of ego. When he speaks he sounds like he loves the game.

    I think Michael Atherton is fantastic. He seems to be able to relate to the normal punters but also has experience of playing at the very top level.

    There hasn't been enough time for the BCCI to corrupt them

    But I can imagine Dravid being a gun commentator. Found Ganguly a dick though.

    Ah good, he's been looking for one of those.

    Seriously though, couldn't agree more about Chappell. Takes himself so seriously and likes to think he's some sort of guru. Nah mate you're a cock.
