I have really enjoyed listening to the Trinidadian commentator Fazeer Mohammed during the West Indies series. Really enthusiastic, with great knowledge and a sense of humour. At one point during the Headingly test he started singing a calypso!
I love cricket but I really don’t want to listen to just ex-players, because mostly these days they are boring. Thinking about it, listening to test matches on the radio with my dad first got me into the game. I have a feeling that TMS was better then and certainly didn’t suffer by having a mix of people from all walks of British life. In fact, the posh pro -broadcasters Jonners and Henry Blofeld rubbing shoulders with the likes of Fred Truman, John Arlott and Trevor Bailey et,al gave it it’s flavour.
