Commentators on Sky Sports

I have been watching the cricket telecast on the web, thanks to Sky Sports. The commentators signed up by Sky Sports are an interesting mix of people - some good and some really bad.

(1). Dean Jones and Nasser Hussain *****
Excellent commentators who concentrate on the game rather on their own individual biases. Nasser espcially has impressed me with his shrewd and strategic thinking. I always knew that he was a thinking captain but to let the viewers an insight into his view points has been an absolute treat. Dino of course is wonderful to hear because he makes you enjoy the cricket even if nothing interesting is going on in the field.

(2). Ian Botham ****
Good commentator - however, he doesn't provide too much of analysis and strategy. But he speaks well and keeps his English team bias to a minimum, but it does leak out on and off.

(3). David Gower and L.Sivaramakrishnan ***
David Gower has this penchant to show all things English is very good and all things (including groundstaff, fieldsmen, field, pitch etc) Indian very bad and that is what pisses me off. He is of course heavily biased towards England. Sivaramakrishnan, on the other hand, normally has an unbiased view, which is of course very good. But I have been disappointed with his analytics of the game. Being a good leg-spinner himself, he doesn't analyze some things such as why Kumble is not getting wickets, why Kumble is getting bounce etc - things which will excite the user and help us learn the game more.

(4). Jawagal Srinath **
His plus point is that he just shoots from the hip. But that is his weakness as well. It is good to say what you have in mind but it should make sense in the context of the game. Also, his bias towards his Karnataka team mates - Dravid and Kumble - is understandable but why go overboard especially when India is having a tough time. He should have the nerve to tell that Indians are not performing upto expectations and that better performance is necessary. He seriously needs to improve his grammar as well - really, he has been a disappointment.

Keep listening :).
