I want to get some people's views on this after watching the C&G Final today - C4's coverage is good but I feel it needs some work.
Nicholas - intolerably smug, not funny - get him off my screen!!
Atherton - insightful, knowledgeable, funny.
Reeve - insightful, but not v funny, ineloquent, thinks he is capable of very astute judgements but they normally fall flat.
Boycott - straight-talking, knowledgeable, yet slightly out of touch with the modern game.
Benaud - genius.
Hughes - the Analyst is more insightful than anyone else, and his shirts are always a source of amusement.
This summer's "opposition" commentator, Ian Bishop - insightful, eloquent and a clear head amidst West Indian confusion.
And the two new additions for today's game:
Graham Thorpe - uneasy behind the mic, but some good quips and fairly knowledgeable, a good start.
Nick Knight - comfortable, calm, knowledgeable and a sure bet to head to the "combox" when he retires in a few years.
The montage at the end of the show showing "out-takes" and highlights from this summer to the tune of Mambo No.5 was great - the bit where Michael Vaughan tried to throw his bat up and spin it round but dropped it, plus the interview out-takes from Matthew Hoggard and Steve Harmison were great. Also good to see Freddie's taunting of Tino Best before he got out at Lord's - priceless.
