    I can't stand Nasser and Mark Nicholas irritates me. Russel Arnold really is very ordinary as a commentator.


    I've enjoyed listening to Tom Moody, as well as Ian Chappell. It's always good to hear Ian Chappell and (to a lesser extent) Tony Greig when they're away from channel 9 and interacting with commentators from other countries.

    Anyone who doesn't talk about the batting powerplay.

    Who was commentating the other day when taylor was struggling and was giving a blow by blow account of why he was struggling with his technique. Some comments on Taylor getting his hands in front of his body which would lead to his downfall.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Chaps as always.Bumble is good
    as is Nasser and Jackman and
    wouldn't mind hearing from
    Sanjay,Athers and Morrison. The one commentator that
    annoys me the most is Alan
    Wilkins.A realy nice man but his
    continuous rambling i find quite
    irritating

    My favourites are usually the commentators I don't get to hear a lot. Fresh perspective is always interesting to me.

    Nasser by the country mile for me. It's refreshing that there's a comm who's intelligent, actually dissects play and field changes and isn't afraid to express an opinion without being a cock about it.

    Athers fence sits a bit too often for me, which is probably partly why Nasser was twice the captain he was.

    Personally, Athers is my favorite because I can take every word that he says with merit. Not only does he provide excellent analysis but I find him quite interesting to listen to. Nasser definitely provides some great insight but there are times when his biases do come out- such as his pro-essex bias and I do think he tends to jump on the bandwagon a fair bit much like a lot of commentators.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    Personally I feel the opposite.. Athers tries too hard, waaaay too hard, to come across as this knowledgable unbiased guy and basically, for me, fails miserably. He does make good observations at times during play by play but that's about it. Nasser is just so so much better to listen to during a game and AFTER a game...
