Deadset spends every broadcast whinging about modern cricket and how he was around in the good old days.

Adds no value whatsoever.

Spent most last test saying how bill Lawry once told him bowing around the wicket to left handers never worked. Spent the whole shift critiquing the English about it. when the statistician told him how many wickets broad had around the wicket to lefties his reply was that’s not what bill lawry reckons though.


Yup which says a lot about the others IMO

I will admit to getting tired about him going on about administrators.

And yeah I heard that Bill Lawry comment I thought he said with a bit levity as if to say oh well Bill may not be right.

Why I think Chappell is the best along with Maxwell and to lesser extent Gilchrist, Lane and Ponting is they make their commentary about the cricket and keep their tone even. They do start yelling and trying to create false ion and drama.

All IMO of course.


yeah agree about many bringing that false sense of intensity for sure. That's why I think Maxwell is still my favourite.

I'm a big fan of Dirk Nannes. I also liked Mark Nicholson and Bumble because they used emotive words rather than just a volume of noise to express the action.

Is there any point in replacing Khawaja for Harris.

We are not going to lose the series, Khawaja is 36 and is barely going around another year. Might as well stick with Harris and give him every single oppurtunity before he is inevitably dropped.

All those guys have played recent enough to understand the modern game, they call it as they see it, never come with ridiculous calls that will ever happen, never go over the top when calling and never go on and on about something relatively minor.

Chappell has become an absolute f**king pain to listen to, constantly negative and raves on about the same minor thing for an extended period of time.

He's a real 'back in my day' type operator and your post about his Bill Lawry story is a perfect example.

Ian Chappell is 78 years of age. People receive a pension and don't work at that age because their physical and mental state is in decline. Not to mention someone who has spent the majority of his life on planes and sleeping in hotel beds. Surely that adds a few more years.

He went on for too long with Channel 9 so shouldn't be anywhere near a microphone with the ABC. Just a grumpy old man these days and sad that his status and brand as a great Australian Captain and batter is being damaged.

Jim Maxwell is 71 and whilst he still has a great voice and manner with his commentary he is also seriously losing the plot with some of his comments and memory lapses.

Whilst I liked Chappeli as a player, he is an obnoxious bore.

Never a more fitting initial than I. It's all you ever hear. I.I,I.

And Greg could bore for Australia.

I couldn't agree more with DTH's assessment above.

Cummins back in for Neser too.
Neser unlucky to be dropped for Boland after just one test match (even if he was essentially a COVID replacement). Interesting selection picking Boland, has an excellent Shield record and this test is obviously home ground advantage for him (91 wickets @25.71 in 26 matches at the MCG), a real horses for courses selection.

Cummins said he was sore and that he has a small leg injury, nothing major though. They want to give him a full week off to get ready for the 4th test.

i remember when bowlers played through the pain barrier, imagine Dennis Lillee dropping out of a Ashes test because he is "sore"

Not Richardsons fault, just the system these days :roll:
my team stagnant and on the road to nowhere

Amazingly, Boland's a downgrade even on Neser.

If only the Chadd had been 5-10 years younger.

In Bairstow (no good), Crawley (no good), Wood (good, should've played last test but obviously couldn't bowl part time offies so got left out) and Leach (no good)\

For us, Boland...no good but will be good enough to take 7fa in this game if given the chance. That's how badly I rate their batting line up.

Is Boland that bad.

257 wickets at 25 is a pretty decent record

Agree with most of this.

Unfortunately have to agree about Chappelli from what I've heard from him this year. Used to be must-listen-to thoughts on cricket, even though his delivery wasn't the greatest.

Greg Blewett is under-rated IMO. Keeps his words and manner simple and clear, whilst still insightful enough.
Nannes is good, Andrew Moore is pretty good, sounds like a Jim Maxwell clone to me but pulls it off.
Still rate Alison Mitchell really highly.
James Brayshaw still makes me want to punch the telly. In Adelaide was going on about how we might see Green's real talent like Sydney this year when we went for the tonk and got some cheap runs. No Green's real talent is he can bat sensibly/normally for long periods and make big scores like in the Shield, and has shown potential to do at Test level.
