Agree about TMS but I feel the Blofield is dragging it down a little now and is potentially over the hill/going a little crazy.

My favourite was the West Indian lady - Donna something? Really interesting voice and pretty knowledgable. Wonder what happened to her?

Was Danny Morrison the bloke who did this afternoons ipl match? The one who was laughing when pollard was about 2 yards short when running a 2?

I watched the Essex and Sussex game the other day and James Foster was on and sounded good.

But like others I'm liking Tres and Key because they've only recently came out of the game so know what's relevant plus they've been around the block, played for England and most of all theyre not complete tools who are arogent and up their own (No Swearing Please). Can't stand KP doing any sort of commentary along with Vaughan and Knight.

Swann is fun at times and Atherton has his own sence of humour which I enjoy. There is so many decent ones nowadays to be fair

I love Pommie Mbangwa's voice - he's not the most insightful commentator but he just sounds wonderful

I love Harsha Bhogle, and miss his discussion on cricketing insights during the game.

Its too bad that BCCI takes themselves too seriously. oh well....

Donna Symmonds @FattusCattus she's from Barbados. She still does commentary on the radio, mostly. For me I'll have to go with Bishop, pretty straight forward guy. Tends to be a straight shooter, calls a spade a spade!

I like Charlie Dagnall on the radio. Rob Key has interesting things to say on Sky.

Atherton for me. Most measured, doesn't use gimmicks or superlatives were they're not warranted and doesn't talk for the sake of talking.

Also like aggers, swann, holding, nass. I mute botham, justbseems to be getting more bitter and sarcastic as he gets older. Despite what he thinks, he doesnt know it all, be that cricket or wine...

For 20/20 cricket the BBL commentary team is a mile ahead of anyone.

For the longer formats I like Holding, Athers & Warne. Key & Tresco have impressed me in the RL Cup.

Majority of the TMS team is fantastic although I have to turn off Blowers a lot these days.

Overseas I like the main SA commentator, is it Ackerman?
