    Listened to Sen, well tried to as it is hard to listen to the radio at my work with machines going. I thought it was good

    Radio is dead!

    With work wifi and a Kayo sports sub I never have to bother with sub-par ABC commentary or incessant radio ads ever again!

    Cricket and radio will always go together.

    I stopped listening to ABC a couple of years ago, how was it for day 1? Plus, how was Jim Maxwell?

    Doubtful Tom Moody is ever going to make a good ball by ball caller. Tim Lane back to Macquarie radio full time with Slats doing ball by ball on 7 wouldn't surprise me.

    ABC was solid. All the ball by ball commentators were solid and I liked what both Ed Cowan and Dizzy brought to the table.

    Switched between ABC and SEN during the day and really enjoyed both of them. I prefer SEN's lineup but will lean to ABC because of no ads.

    Thought ABC was great yesterday. It helps they've got some diversity in voices again.

    Jim Maxwell, Alison Mitchell, Harsha Bogle and Andrew Moore is a great ball-by-ball team, probably the best they've had in years. Gillespie is good colour. Probably still missing that one great colour guy that they've never really had since Skull left.

    Anthony Hudson is a terrific caller, especially considering he's never called the cricket. Katich is probably my favourite special comments man now that Rogers isn't doing it.

    Also listened to ABC a lot today and it was very good as always.

    Did enjoy Katich’s inability to keep it together when Hudson was reading the ads.

    I've enjoyed ABC thus far. In regards to their experts, two bowlers and two ex batsmen is a nice balance. Not convinced they need 4 ball by ball callers but Alison Mitchell being doing 40 minute stints on 7 may make that a necessity of sorts.

    I started with Seven's coverage but couldn't stick through Slater so I went to ABC. Shame because I think Punter is an excellent commentator but Slater just ruins any coverage.

    Ed Cowan is fantastic and really love his insight on ABC.
