Default Anyone else embarassed by Athar ali khan?

It's cringeworthy to listen to his commentary among non bangladeshis... I find it hard to believe that no one in BD has decent cricketing knowledge and can also speak English accurately and without stuttering every 5 seconds.. my word let's not even talk about his biased commentary and lack of cricketing insights and common sense . Rant over

A lot of other commentators like Ravi Shastri, Amir Sohail, Australian commentators are more biased. Sometimes he gets too excited but he is still much better than Shamim and has decent cricketing knowledge. I hope some of our current cricketers like Shakib and Tamim will become commentators after their retirement.

i think tamim can be a good commentator. shakib can probably give better insight but talking nonstop in commentary maybr difficult for him....

Its just like Jeremy Fredricks and the other Zimbabwe commies. What a horror it was for TV viewers

But still better than Shamim. But I am not embarrassed, why should I? He is not representing us, is he.

just because this is a bangla cricket forum doesn't mean only jingoistic views should be propagated here... even if you are more delusional than a BNP/ AL supporter, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that Athar Ali khan is arguably the worst commentator in cricket history... and that list includes people like sanath jayasuriya and navjot sidhu

I prefer Athar over Shamim, I think he's a good commie. Shamim can get annoying with those random phrases he throws out there lol. But I don't mind either in the end.

I like him quite. He's passionate, he has some decent insights to offer compared to other bozos that force me to mute the commentary when they come on. What exactly do you find cringeworthy about him - as in he's not great, but why does he suck, in your view?

Not a pretentious and yet clueless git like Shamim anyway.

Arguably the worst commentator in cricketing history? Seriously? Do you know what hyperbole is?

And what's the point of getting your knickers in a wad and start bandying about insults about being delusional. I would hazard an opinion that your self styled comment "arguably the worst commentator in cricket history" is more reflective of delusion than anything else here.

And while accusing AK as being jingoistic, do care to look up the meaning of the word.

And I suppose you did not listen to the recent WI and Zimabwean commentators on our recent tours. Your list of "arguably the worst commentator in cricket history" will grow by leaps and bounds.

I'm with you mayne. I respect Athar's role in the national team in the past, but can't stand his commentary. I raise my glass to that rant.

Jeremy Fredericks was one of the best commentators I ever heard. I would take biasedness over dullness every time.

Shamim does speak good idiomatic English. It's just that people who are not first language speakers or have been brought up on centuries old (colonial legacy) grammatical constructs and idioms tend to have an issue with him. My issue with him is more to do with his being the reigning maharaja of obviousistan and his often vacuous and content free drivel.
