I was watching Set Max in the morning when Srinath & Manjrekar were literally throwing punches at each other. Why cant they have their politics outside the set ? It was so stupid. Manjrekar had to contradict whatever Srinath says.

I agree, LS has an irritating tone.
Arun lal and ranjit fernando are monotonous (ranjit fernando's grammar sucks)
The best are
3. Mark nichols
Not necessarily in that order.

Another fine specimen (apart from my choice Mark Nicholas) of the worst cricket commentator: Barry Richards. Has a huge thing going against Tendulkar. So much so that he picks one instance to prove his prejudices against Tendulkar and ignores the many instances that prove otherwise.

The other day I happen to hear P.J.DUJON on Ten sports commenting on the WI vs Bangladesh Test match & have started liking him. He seems to be very knowledgeable. He was describing intricately & was very good to hear. One learns so much from these if explained in detail (absolute lay man terms) Along with Sobers this fella will make it to the ranks

Yesterday while browsing the channels I came across the Australia-New Zealand CT final.
There was this funny piece of discussion happening between two commentators(whom I don't know, one of them sounded like Wilky) regarding which team the SA people will be supporting.
Com 1: I think the SA people will support Kiwis because< says some thing related to Rugby> and Kiwis are more likeable people that Aussies.
Com 2 : Ian chappel is sitting close.
Com 1: <after a short pause and says is a lower voice> And he is playing deaf.
Later these commentators were replaced by Manjrekar and Harsha Bhogle and I changed the channel. No need to comments about Manjrekar. Harsha has the unique ability of making a string of comments about completely useless irrelevant topics. He can make a T20 match feel like a Test match.

Harsha Bhogle is THE Worst Commentator ever!! He has no clue most of the times about whats happening in the match.
I many times switch to DD when he is doing his bak-bak. He has become totally intolerable.
