Interesting, I like Ponting. Never heard Gilchrist or Fleming commentating


#1405

Gilchrist did some T20 commentary with Sky I think.


#1406

All of them I think


#1407

Was Fleming part of the Channel 4 coverage? Have a feeling either he or some other bowler of his vintage was involved.


#1408

Swann’s on the radio anyway. An utter knob. Don’t mind Vaughan as much.


#1409

Vaughan alright in small doses


#1410

Glenn McGrath is on TMS as well.


#1411

Loves himself


#1412

That was during the period that Channel 4 wasn’t on the Sky platform and I had no access


#1413

He does, but he can be entertaining. Swann ad correctly identified is an utter knob


#1414

Matt Smith has been a bit of a jack of all trades presenter too. Late night ITV football highlights, snooker on BBC at one stage if I recall correctly, possibly on Sky at one point also. Likes to wince and raise his eyebrows when talking about controversial incidents.


#1415

I’ll greatly miss Nasser Hussain, and to a slightly lesser extent Atherton


#1416

Surprised there’s no mention of Amazon and Facebook bidding for La liga rights. Has that been posted already?


#1417

Bet365 stream all the La Liga games

Fleming is good actually. Holding is a big loss if he’s not there. Bumble was a bit painful. Might listen to the first hour. Depends a bit on the time. Some rain forecast, but I suspect this’ll be a 3 and a half day job in any case.
England need both openers to play well throughout the series to stand a chance.
I’m going for 4-1 Australia.


#1419

I preferred atherton funnily enough.


#1420

Amazon will own this space soon


#1421

Great post. Can’t believe no one else posted it already.
