He talks too much about the nature,birds,sky,grass on the pitch and "Bolayer Saathay Bailayer Aattiota".I have no doubt that Khuda Box Mridha is a very good poetic cricket commentator!!!

Khoda box is a clown, not a commentator.

BTW, he's an all-in-one commentator, not cricket commentator.

Tony Greig says the most stupid irrelevant things, I'd prefer listen to Bill Lawry.

Waqar's a good commentator but his english is disgraceful, hopefully next time he comes to Australia he'll have taken a few lessons. And I don't like the way he goes "beauty"

Favourite commentators
1. Harsha Bhogle
2. Kerry O'Keefe
3. Mark Nicholas
4. Richie Benaud
5. David Gower

Waqar is a joke, one second he sounds like a Sri Lankan and and the next he tries to have a cheap Australian accent. If he fixes that, he can be a good one.

Waqar is disgraceful. What is a wictory? or a half wolley? or Chaminda Waas? Or the wee bee series?

"Beewwwwwdy, dat's a great timing"
"Dat's a totally unseasonal shot"

He has a good knowledge of the game though and says some interesting things.

LOL! That is strange as it's normally the Sri Lankans who can't pronounce 'V'. Do you think his name is really Vaqar?

I think Mark Taylor has improved a lot as a commentator. And the only time Bill Lawry is good is during the last 15 overs of an ODI!

Default Kerry O\'Keefe

Have any of you guys heard of Kerry O'Keefe from Australian radio? He's the guy that keeps laughing all the time, and cannot stop telling funny anecdotes, and then laughing at his own stories.

He is hilarious!!

PS: I think Ian Chappell is a hopeless commentator who can't stop bagging (putting down) other teams except Australia. Also, more disturbingly, he has a habit of targeting non-anglo saxon teams, or teams which do not have "christian: names.

I wasnt around to hear most of the comentators like mcgilivray. but my top 5 would be.
1. Ian chappell. He talks about the game and actually coaches the younger generation in his comentary.
2. Harsha Bogle
3. Richie Benaud. He has some good one liners.
4. Bill Lawry
5. Kerry O'Keefe.

I am surprised at this remark. He is lavish with his praise whoever the player or whatever the team provided they actually perform. I think you have not read his articles about the batting of V.V.S. Laxman.
