Yes advice to all: mute the sound during BD commentator's....thats it. online petition to drop him makes no sense at all

not just a commentator, dean jones is a well known test player. I guess it's par for the course for aussie players to call others by offensive terms.

why do people have such a problem with shamim ? I found him quite ok during the recent series in BD. much better than athar who does nothing other than repeat the observations by the other commie in cliched sentences. his hi-speed breathless utterances sound like he is trying to dictate his last will while someone is drowning him.
