Cricinfo has conducted a poll of 12,000 cricket fans to see who the most popular cricket commentator was and predictably Richie Benaud came out on top quite a long way ahead of the second placed Michael Holding. The cricket commentry dream team comprising the six highest votes was Richie Benaud, Michael Holding, Geoff Boycott, David Gower, Mark Nicholas and Ian Botham. Those that didn't make it - in order of votes cast - were Mike Atherton, David Lloyd, Nasser Hussain, Simon Hughes, Bob Willis, Dermot Reeve and Paul Allot. I must admit that whilst I like Benaud and Holding I don't much like Boycott as he is an anachronism that should be pensioned off like the great Fred Trueman was and I don't like David Gower and Mark Nicholas much either as they witter and waffle too much. I think that Mike Atherton is a revelation in the commentary box and I even like Bob Willis but wish that he had a more interesting voice. Of the guest commentators here every year I rather like Michael Slater this year but can't wait for India to tour again in the hope that Navjot Sidhu will be in the commentary box so taht we can hear more gems like "India has to keep on its toes like a midget at a urinal"
