Default S.A. Cricket Commentary

Does anyone else find Mike Haysman, and Graham Smith really irritating cricket commentators?

I turn of the sound when these guys are commentating as they are so annoying.

I don't really have a problem with them but my volume is very low - mainly focusing on the picture - just playing in the background.

I cannot stand most of the commentators because they favour their team maybe way too much however I do feel that the Indian commentators do a far better job and their knowledge of the game is far better than most commentators out there

I also find some (most) of the commentators very irritating. And like Krugie the volume is either very low or completely turned down.
I would go as far as to say that most of the time there is no commentary but rather something like eaves dropping on a couple of guys sitting on the pavilion discussing cricket in general.

Cannot say that I find the commentators for the Proteas versus India series irritating but if I was pushed to name one I'd go for "Pommy". He doesn't so much commentate on the game as trying to give his views on too many issues. Sorry, I cannot explain it better. He's a pleasant chap but I get turned of by his commentary.

But, thankfully, my pet hate of a commentator doesn't do test cricket. Oh my word.
