Cool voice, good insight, freshens up the box. All he has to stop doing is knocking on the pitch with his fist demonstrating how hard it is.

I like Sivaramakrishnan as well. He reminds me of Tin Tin.

Pommie is also great to listen to.

He's been really good from what I've heard of him.

It'd be great if he came over here next summer and did some work on Nine or the ABC.

Is he more a TV guy, or does he do radio work as well.

Love how white his teeth are, I better go to the same dentist or buy the right type of toothpaste.

Nasser, from whatever little I heard from him, seemed great...

Pommie is good...But Jackman is better it seems...

As I understand it, Pommie has the nickname because of the way he speaks, ie. like a Pom. I am speaking under correction though.

I think(only speculating) that most people's problems with him are his not so pleasing to the ears voice, because once I got over that and listened to what he had to say he wasn't that bad. Especially good when he's analysing spinners. Surprised he didn't turn out a better player than his record shows because he sounds smart enough.
He was a superb leg spinner when he first came to the Indian side. He and Maninder revived hopes of another Golden era of spin but one day cricket, too much hype for both of them when still very young seemed to affect them both negatively. Siva later tried to concentrate on his batting to make a come back. He was a pretty good batsman when he put effort into it but it was as a leg spin/googly bowler that he gave hints of greatness.
