RIP Philip Hughes - 1988-2014
Founder and Grand Wizard of the CW Football Thread Statluminati. Potential hater of abilities. Blocked on twitter by Michael Vaughan, Brad McNamara and AtlCricket for my hard hitting truths.
Ffs Jono where's the love?
In this order:
Michael Vaughan's accent is so off-putting I can't bring myself to actually listen to much that he says
The worst ever was Nas when he started - Christ he was awful, but he's got better and better and for me is now up there with Athers
Bob Willis is bloody awful too, when he tries - when he's just his normal curmudgeonly self he's terrific value
Worst pundit by a street though is Dominic Cork - he must really work at it
Was Collingwood any good when he went to commentate in India?
Sorry Lankans, but your commies are the worst (Arnold, Sanath, and Ranjit "BOPARA!" Fernando)
Among Indians, Shastri and Gavaskar by a mile. Sivaramawhatshisname is quickly moving up the ranks though. Bhogle and Sanjay can be quite awful but they're not so in your face about it; I cut harsha slack because he's a presenter and supposed to do play by play more or less. Arun Lal is his own kind of terrible. Dravid and Ganguly are awesome, except when Ganguly protects Sehwag, yuvraj, and Bhajji
Haha, does Jayasuriya still commentate? He's ****ing abysmal.
I always like to listen to Farokh Engineer when he does a bit of summarising - he's not got a clue what he's on about, but the sound of his voice reminds me what a wonderful cricketer he was
I never understand love for Holding. Yeh mon, he has de coooool voice, but I can't get over what a negative wanker he is.
My favourite is Atherton, but I also like Hussain. But I just can't stand Bumble.
Barry Richards was once good but has become a bitter, parochial, patronising get-off-my-lawn type.
