They've got to stop pairing Harsha with Mark Waugh.

Mark Howard is not professional enough to be in this position. He keeps talking about fellow commentators selarys and pushing the envelope when it comes to short cuts.jeans unshaven bagging fellow commentators who actually played the game .he is a FOS used car salesman. Not what cricket needs.the rest of the team would be better off without him leave him to the big bash were he can talk about his kids and the surf in G town what a wanker.

With tonight's BBL match, I'm not sure why Fox Cricket think it is preferable to call the game off the television rather than take the Seven feed in full.

Seems like they just can't work out the best way to cover the BBL, which isn't doing lot for the promotion of the series this year.

He's fine.

People whinge too much about the commentators.

Bogle nailed it today.
"kerry is a one man show. He writes his jokes, relays them and then laughs at them."
And nightwatchman should be called cringe watchman. i dont think it knows what its trying to be. Appeal to all denominators high and low of cricket?
Fail.
Warnes anecdote of playing golf with KP was long, boring and the punchline fizzled like a pissed on firecracker. Woeful stuff.

Honestly, I have never really found O'Keefe funny, maybe one joke in a hundred and that laugh follwed by the 'Oooohhh' afterwards, like he's just jizzed himself, plain weird and disturbing! Bumble Lloyd, now that guy's a riot, just naturally funny.

Well they do advertise it as "Cricket like never before"

I just hope that above all else that we don’t get the ‘pleasure’ of hearing Lee and Healy for the test. Give me someone like AB or Mike Hussey over those two
I understand this is very much in hindsight but I loved Brett Lee’s work on the commentary on the 4th test

Extremely insightful and he let the game breathe and didn’t feel compelled to say a word for saying a word.

I have quite a major crush on Abbey Gelmi. I think Tuffers is a really fun commentator.

On the flipside, Waugh annoys me as a commentator, and Symonds adds nothing to the game.

Yet, I think I've just committed to Fox's BBL coverage for the rest of the tournament. I can't deal with the MKR ads any more. I've never seen a minute of the show (did you know it's been going for 10 years?! :rolleyes:) - yet I want to brutally murder every single person on that ad.

I feel that the 7 commentators have a more pleasant mix compared to Fox.

Never been a fan of Mark Waugh and Andrew Symonds.

I reckon Michael Slater is good on 7 and Andy Maher is much better nowadays.

Foxtel seems to have more bells and whistles with its coverage but Seven certainly do an acceptable job in presenting the game.

Fox Cricket's commentary team for the ODI series: Adam Gilchrist Isa Guha, Shane Warne, Mark Waugh, Mike Hussey, Allan Border, Michael Vaughan, Kerry O’Keeffe, Brendon Julian, Harsha Bhogle, Neroli Meadows and Megan Barnard.

Brad Haddin will apparently be a special guest for the match in Sydney.

They're doing it for the Asian Cup too. Cricket coverage broke the bank I take it.
I thought they were for the Asian Cup, but I wasn't sure and couldn't be bothered looking into it to confirm.
Fox's Asian Cup commentators (Simon Hill, Sasa Ognenovski, Brenton Speed and Andy Harper) are all on site. Tara, Robbie, Bozza, Kozzie and co are in all a studio.
