I was watching a bit of the cricket tragic and Megan Barnard seemed either to take the table tennis somewhat seriously or she's actually pretty good at table tennis.

I thought one of the blessings of this change of rights holders was getting rid of Ian Healy. Haven't had to listen to him all summer, but now he's doing a marathon stint in the Fox box for the first session today. Please tell me this is just a Gabba only type deal? Horrible stuff.

Thought the exact same thing.

We’d finally exorcised the demon after years of suffering.

I’m hoping he’s just filling in for Waugh and Warne.

He wasn’t involved in the Indian series which is probably telling.

A real sub par line up at the minute.

Seems like most of the good callers have gone on break after the India series.

Yep he was garbage, had to put the TV on mute. Needs to be reigned in like they do over on Sky and he will be fine though.

On Sky it's alright as you have the English commentators talking down Australia so it provides a bit of balance. Despite us losing in 2013 hearing Warne slam Cook's captaincy and suggest it would cost them when they came to Australia while the English smugly shrugged their shoulders was a good laugh.

That said to be barracking and getting emotional over A BBL game is quite sad. If even the players on the field can keep it in check (things like having to talk with commentators during the game) he has no excuse.
