Shamim is colorful, exuberant, zesty and got tremendous command of English. What I hate is the typical OVERANATLYTICAL commentary esp. by sub-contental commentators describing : oh oh the ball came about 2/3rd and 1/4th of an inch from the toe's end of the of the bat, played from the back foot on the up coming to pitch of deliver....dude just shut up

I hate making commentary overlyanalytical technical jargon. Yes it's cricket. Yes it's a bunch of guy's sport. But one should have his own voice.

Shamim does.
