Top 3 current cricket commentators
Ever since Cricket has been consumed by viewers and listeners, cricket commentary has been an integral part of the game. Even before television, there was radio and the likes of Tony Cozier and Kerry O’ Keefe were legends of radio commentary.
Then came television and Richie Benaud, Ian Chappell, David Gower etc have been setting the tone since a long time. We came up with 3 best cricket commentators who are active currently.
1) Nasser Hussain – The Englishman while commenting, views the game from the perspective of both captains and as a viewer one enjoys the fresh approach. His analytical skills are second to none and that coupled with his sophisticated style is a great combo.
2) Harsha Bhogle – Hailed by many as the voice of Indian Cricket, Harsha Bhogle epitomises the maxim, ‘one doesn’t have to be a great cricketer to be a great presenter’. His commentary is in the mould of story telling which is quite unique.
3) Micheal Holding – The legendary Micheal Holding is a straight talker and he makes no bones about his opinions. Be it taking on the BCCI or even his employer broadcaster, the West Indian never shies away from calling a spade, a spade. His knowledge of the game and opinions are respected by one and all.
