I find it ironic that Andy “the walking cliche” Maher laughs at Greg West clumsily playing all over a slow off spinning Yorker by Dwayne Bravo as it may as well be an analogy of you trying to play the knowledgeable commentator in any form of competitive sport. Peanut.
Blokes who aren’t former players shouldn’t laugh at players during commentary. Former players shouldn’t really either to be honest but Andy Maher shouldn’t be doing that.

On BBL again tonight, apparently on Fox as well. Can't get rid of those long winded questions no matter what channel you put on.
Ricky Ponting doesn't seem to be a big fan either.

Twice today Ricky Ponting had discussed something on camera and Andy Maher asked him a question about exactly what Ponting was saying.

As an example. He said ‘Cameron Bancroft would be thinking X, Y and Z coming in to this game.’
Andy Maher: ‘So what would Cameron Bancroft be thinking coming in to this game?’

Ponting was clearly getting frustrated.

I actually more surprised that he didn’t ask that question if Ricky and then answer it for him before asking it again - that’s what he normally does

“So Ricky, what would be going through Cam Bancroft’s mind right now? Would he be thinking a,b,c?
Ricky “I just said that Andy”

He’s done I again....
Strikers vs Renegades,

“Ohhh Eees run out, ah no, hang on, he might be in, ah they’re referring it......he’s looks like he’s out but we can’t categorically call it, jeeeez we’re just can’t be sure, they’re referring it.... oooh eees done well to ground eees bat but was it enough”
(All the while, Tuffers after seeing the first replay simply said - “he’s bounced the bat, his out”)
And he was.

This is like BT and Basil commentating tenpin bowling together. Nobody asked for it, nobody knows why it's happening but for some shit reason I'm watching.

I am sure it is part of the reason BBL isn’t as watchable this year.

When Brad Hodge comes across as the commentary star in a team of 3 (Maher and Tuffnell) there are huge issues

He's shit and unfunny there's nothing to get. Had the right mates in the right place or worked his dog days as a lighting man for Jerry Seinfield.

Whenever I think of Andy Maher I picture him on "the Front bar" just giggling away while Mick and Sam go back n forth.

He has a goofy laugh. Sort of looks like a muppet. Sure he's a nice guy though.

clearly they do not do on air checks at s.e.n. either that or they do not care. maher is back with his same shithouse microphone technique. has the thing up his nose i reckon. as a result 'p's, 't's, pop 's's also distort. for f***ksake someone tell him.
