I find the standard of cricket commentating quite high, there’s no equivalents to Shearer & Wright!
To be honest, when I had Sky, I thought Botham was pretty average and rather cliched, though.

Both Mitchell and Guha are excellent. Not a fan of Rainford Brent who is more of a say what you see type commentator

There is one woman.....commentator who speaks in short....phrases and can’t reach the....end of her sentence....without stopping in a really....annoying series of pauses.

Drives me nuts.

Genuine question.
Ashes by a million miles.

Tactics and strategy are so much more important in red ball and you have full control over your fielders position and there is (usually) no massive rush so batsman should bat more carefully

That's what the Sun reckons - Guha will be covering the 100 for the BBC next year.

Thought not, which makes it even more silly that Sky is receiving criticism based on assumptions, before it has confirmed who the new team will be.

Give it to Nasser. He can commentate too. Asks all the right questions.

Isa has had a nasty attack of the Blowers on TMS lead commentary lately. Hopefully a blip. It’s not easy. Still at least she’s had a go. Not sure Tuffers has ever done lead commentary.

Nasser is the best Sky commentator by a distance. Atherton is good too... when he can be bothered.

Which was my point if you read further into what I was saying. Maybe didn't articulate it that well, but I inferred of the arrogance my team approached the final test.

Atherton was such an idiot during the award ceremony on Sunday. Stokes receives his award for England player of the series, whilst all the players etc are looking on.

And then during the interview Atherton asks him if he supports Root staying on as captain! How embarrassing for Root standing there...talk about inappropriate timing.

And ofcourse it’s a pointless question because Stokes can’t give an answer other than a supportive one whilst he’s standing there in those circumstances.

I agree Nasser is better, and I was impressed with his Kevin Pietersen interview.

Also Stokes and Root are best mates which probably makes it an even more awkward question.

Yes, I noticed that, what a totally ridiculous question to ask. And there was me thinking Atherton is a well educated, intelligent chap.

Yet, if reporters/journalists/broadcasters, don't ask questions like that, they're criticised for giving players an easy ride.

I see The S*n have printed a front page story about an awful tragedy that happened years ago to the Mum of Ben Stokes. They even sent reporters out to New Zealand to visit his parents house.

Absolute scum of a paper, and they have been rightfully called out by Stokes because of it.

This is the BBC article with Ben's riposte to that sh*t bag of a paper.
