Fade out with test cricket? Seriously?

His tendency to move away from what’s going on in the game into little annoying conversations and inability to shut up is the opposite of what we need in the test matches, leave that to Punter, Blewett, Katich etc. At least in the BBL he livens things up a bit, even if his style gets tedious
Screaming like an idiot, laughing at his own shit jokes and talking non stop isn’t livening things up for mine.

elevating everything with the perfect commentary is dubious and people can dock your pay with a second version of your best work..

the ex players they have are good flem.. punter, jb.. and so on.. we don't need any more and we certainly don't need a memory train.

I’d certainly prefer the above traits in BBL than in the calmer environment of test cricket
and this is why the perfectionists are looking to a level playing field.. however, the bbleage is good enough for those who want to burn the candle at both ends.

Anyone who has breath in them would be frothing over Isa. She's smart, played the game at the highest level and asks intelligent questions to the test legends sitting alongside her. I don't mind Lane and Alison at all but Slater, McGrath and Fleming having nothing to offer and spoil the 7 coverage for me. Isa has everything to offer and I would rather pay for fox then watch 7.
could listen to her talk cricket all day

I feel dirty saying it but I reckon I'd love to hear Bruce commentate the Boxing Day test. Just one test. Imagine the fawning over VIIIRRRRAAAAAATTTT.
You just get the feeling Australia need a wicket here, don't you?

Slater is back tonight...they’d better have tapped him on the shoulder that he’s annoying the entire viewership
Doesn't seem so. Bloody annoying commentator.
Annoying we lost ch 10s commentary team. They were great
