Default Cricinfo match commentaors with it today?

I was reading the ball by ball commentary on the England vs Sri lanka odi game, and for some reason today they have been trying to be humerous? sarcastic? whats with the change or writing?


14.5 Perera to Pietersen, 2 leg byes, Somebody's strangled a cat out in the middle of the pitch. Oh no, it's actually Perera's lbw appeal. KP took three steps down the pitch and the ball was going high. But pretty close otherwise

12.1 Malinga to Pietersen, no run, right on the money again from The Slinger. How on earth does he get so accurate with an action like that? Essex's bowling guru, Ian Pont, would do his nut about it. And that's a fact.

On Malinga's action: "Essex's bowling guru, Ian Pont, would do his nut about it. And that's a fact."

"Maharoof is on fire", says Mike Atherton, in an unexpected parody of the Bloodhound Gang. "We don't need no water ... etc"

List goes on...in my opinion, thanks martin, andreww, its made the game much more enterntaining today, and soem classic quotes have come out

I wonder if the commentator is supporting England? :P

From the fourth ODI:

It’s lunch now – although England’s bowlers should be given bread and water and sent down to the nets – and we will be back for the second half of the match at about 3.10pm (14.10GMT). We apologise for the loss of commentary for a few overs during the Sri Lanka innings but it was down to our recently-fired ISP.
49.6Ali to Maharoof, no run, a dot ball to end an over which produced 20 runs.
49.5Ali to Bandara, 1 run, another full toss, hit square. It should have been called as it was above waist height but the umpire clearly wants to get off before sunset
49.4Ali to Bandara, FOUR, the good news is that it actually pitched. The bad news is that it was short and pulled square for another four
49.4Ali to Maharoof, (no ball) 1 run, guess … go on. Yes, a full toss which Maharoof skies and Jones runs round to take a catch .. but rightly called a no-ball
49.3Ali to Maharoof, SIX, Ali overcompensates with a short slower ball which is thwacked into the crowd at midwicket.
49.2Ali to Maharoof, SIX, yet another full toss and it got all it deserved, hammered for six over square leg. Maharoof brings up his fifty and his side’s 300. Ali is dreadful.
49.1Ali to Bandara, 1 run, another full toss, but only a single this time

Malinga's bowling action is really weired, the way he bowls is really dangerous. He might get someone injured one day!

ওইখানে আমিও আছি /যেইখানে সূর্য উদয়/প্রিয়দেশ পাল্টে দেবো/তুমি আর আমি বোধহয়/কমরেড, তৈরি থেকো/গায়ে মাখো আলতা বরণ/আমি তুমি আমি তুমি/এভাবেই লক্ষ চরণ
