    Commentators that have surprised you

    Shoab. Never expected him to be so good with his analysis almost comes across as a cricket nerd. His analytical depth is visibly seen when he is discussing about pace bowling infact his knowledge about fast bowling puts the two W's too shame who are both horrible commies.Also speak well on leadership though the personal attacks on Misbah are not on maybe Pakistan missed a trick back in mid 2000's and he should have been appointed as Inzi's deputy instead of Younis may have been more motivated to stay on the park.

    I hope his fellow commentators prod him into repeating his rant on Afridi. That was sheer gold. Makes one wonder how they played together for so long.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Well said the owner of the house she has a most idiotick run.'

    Russel Arnold once drove his car out of a side road and cut me up. Boy was I surprised.

    But then I noticed it was lovely Russel Arnold and I was angry no more.

    Danny Morrison. I was massively surprised he was able to show his face in New Zealand after his exceptional Campest Haka of All Time.

    Never realised Wasim and Waqar were both for the revolution. Put them straight into my ATG XI!

    Akhtar's commentary is just like his career. Very good one day, being **** another day when discussing Misbah. Such temperamental people should get roles in Rajni movies and that's about it.

    Some one pointed out how Russell Arnold has been really good a few weeks back. Have switched commentary on when Arnold has come a few times and he is nice to listen to. That day, after AB played his super knock v WI, Arnold interviewed him immediately and it was so good. Non intrusive, calm and handled that little section well. Don't remember the questions, but they were apt, which is so difficult and people can get carried away on such occasions.

    There needs to be a dislike button for posts that diss Rajini movies.

    I don't know why people keep smashing Ramiz Raja. He is one of the best Pakistani commentators I have come across. Talks cricket and makes points.

    I have really been warming up to Allan Wilkins. I never used to like him when he came along few years back. Talked too reverentially about many of the Indian players back then. He is so good at his job. Lets the action go on, talks little and makes the play look more pleasing to the viewer. He is every thing Nicholas aspires to be, tbh. Many people don't know, but he was a left arm county bowler in England, so has played a certain level of cricket too.

    Ramiz is an idiot. All he tries to do is state the bleeding obvious, and often ****s it up.

    I actually used to really like him and Shastri as a kid; they both have gotten less insightful and more annoying with time.

    Ganguly is a pleasant surprise; and I'd say Dravid but I always kinda expected him to be really good.

    Give me Dravid, Ganguly, Hussain, Atherton, Lara and I will never press mute. Have listened to The Prince a few times and even though it is news channels right now, he is splendid.
