When you say decent do you mean not biased? Because other then that most of our commentators arn't too bad. The team that does the tennis/swimming/Olympics (ie.. Ch. 7) are pretty good when it comes to not being biast. There arn't too many commentators that arn't biast though.
i dont think the aussie commentartors are biast sure they go for their team and they are happy when thier team is going well but...wouldnt u be too? thats alright but when u go overboard like the great britain league commentators thats been biast

Oh yes they are in the NZ Vs Aussie tests they where saying about how aussie are good and how every players is the best ever and they kept going on and when NZ got a boundry or whatever it was like "yay good four".

Looks like Justin Langer is a major doubt for the Stephen's day but Shaoib Akhtar and Inzamam should be fit.

I don't think that is right it all. It is hard to offer a team any praise when they are getting smashed. It was another story in the ODI series however.

Sure it was Ian Smith in the commentary box at the end of the ODI in Melbourne and he wasn't exactly objective either.

Big Surpise for the 3rd test Shane Watson to make his debut and Mcgill the 2nd spinner. Will be very interesting seeing how Watson goes as if he goes well he maybe in the Aus team for a long time.

Heard something strange in commentary. Does the fact that there's a big crowd at the SCG mean that viewers in Sydney can't see the cricket?

To encourage crowds they only show the last session of Test cricket in the state that is playing host to the game. At least that's what happens in Queensland.

That sucks.

Is there any chance of play getting underway. Just says on the tv that start is delayed due to rain.

Gilly out for around 103, Ponting dismissed for 207 and Watson 31. His first three strokes in Test cricket were fours, the fifth was also a four.

Scoring shots you mean me thinks. Top stuff from Gilly.

Yeah, scoring shots. What a waste that Test series was. The ODI tripod thing should be alot closer. Hopefully.
