Best current commentator
« on: May 11, 2017, 06:31:25 PM »

I always used to like Tony Greig commentary in the past, and I like many commentators currently but Danny Morrison seems to be a cut above the rest these days...His commentary in IPL just adds so much to the experience - passionate and beautiful, in addition to his wonderful accent, cannot be told in works, find him so good :) Also find Clarke and Mark Taylor quite interesting, laid back and excellent analysis always..

What do you guys think, which commentator you like among the current lot.

Danny Morrison..? 😲

As above, most of TMS. Sky are pretty good for the most part, Atherton possibly best? Aussie lot mostly seem to be more interested in talking about themselves than the cricket match.

Danny Morrison for creating the excitement/generating party feel on game days. There are a lot of commentators with excellent analysis and who call it for what it is but few who generate excitement in the mould of Tony Greig, Boycott, etc. Feel Morrison fits the bill here... Maybe a combination of one serious plus another "excitement" commentator will be a good mix...

Don't find that is necessarily a bad thing...there are many who would want to know that in addition to the game, dont we :)

I personally like Danny myself. He is a perfect 20/20 commentator. He is an entertainer and fulfill the demand of t20 entertaining format. He may not work well with longer format of the game.

Danny Morrison just sounds like a complete tool. Every time. Same schtick.

As for the Sky chaps I think they're all great with the exception of Botham, Gower and Knight. Love hearing more of Key and Trescothick this summer so far and I hope they're involved with the England games this summer. Kudos to Ian Ward when anchoring as well, I suspect eventually he'll replace Gower. Best thing about Bumble is he knows the right time to be funny.

As for the Australian contingent it's all one big boys club with Slats, Tubbs, Binga, Warney; here's from drivel from awhile ago https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1rz85VDjNY

But when Warne is paired with the right people he does say some really interesting stuff

Boycott annoys me beyond belief, but , generally his knowledge and insight is a cut above.

Tms all day tho, always listen when I can

Best ever John Arlott if you  closed  your eyes and listened  he was so discriptive you  thought you were watching the match at the ground.

Ramiz Raja.

"And the ball is bowled, the batsman hits the ball, the ball rolls along the ground, the fielder picks up the ball..."

I know, Ramiz! I can see that!  :D

I can see why people can dislike Danny Morrison, he's a bit Marmite.

For me, Bumble for comedy, TMS for the all-round experience.
