    Atherton and Hussain are the best.

    Ponting, and any other convict, should be barred from commentating on the basis of that fucking awful accent. Richie Benaud is the only Australian in history to neither talk shite nor do so without offending aural sensibilities.

    Jim Maxwell on the radio is good as well but I agree otherwise.

    I prefer the Aussie accent than having to listen to Jamie Carragher.

    I’d assume Ian Ward as he has been groomed for the job over the past few years.

    I like Ponting on commentary. Talks sense and very knowledgeable.

    Joe Root fails to convert.

    Can't knock Root for battling but the number of times he gets his half century but then gets out suggests a lack of concentration, possibly caused by the stresses of captaincy.

    Ball that got him kept a bit low too.

    It's barm so STFU.
    It hit off-stump more than halfway up, it may have moved off the seam as on the replay Root played inside it rather than over it.

    What is it with wicket-keepers and awful reviews?
