I've only just got around to getting Sky Sports (there was an offer on Now TV and I wanted to watch the British Lions in NZ) and quite like all the commentators. It sounds like a few people may just be bored of them because not much has changed in the last few years?

I will be interested to see who BT Sport get in to commentate. I'm guessing some of the ex-players on TMS are freelance (Vaughan, Swann, Glenn McGrath, etc.), so would be logical choices. Not sure who the lead commentators would be though.

Ian Ward gets the red card from me too....

Matt Smith will be hosting BT's coverage of The Ashes, so that isn't the reason for Charles Colville's absence this summer.

Hope he's okay.

Amazing!

Warwickshire v Essex will be live on Sky next week.

Normally they cover 2 championship matches a season.

If Essex have the title sewn up before the final week maybe our last game v Somerset will be shown (relegation decider)

Charles Colvile seems to be alive and well, as he today interviewed three former England captains, namely Graham Gooch, Nasser Hussain and David Gower. Colvile’s role appears to now be to present and perform interviews on the many documentaries Sky produce, as he has done so a few times in the last few months, and will probably continue doing so.

Colvile used to present dozens of days of live cricket each year back when Sky broadcast a few county List A matches each week and when viewers were shown a studio discussion during intervals of their international coverage. However, things have changed a lot on Sky since then, as they now have more presenters (Matt Floyd, Isa Guha, Nick Knight and Paul Allott have onto the presenting scene in recent years, although I don't think Allott will continue after his appointment as Lancashire’s director of cricket), show considerably fewer county List A matches, and rarely use a studio for their coverage of non-England internationals.

At the risk of being accused of sexist tendencies Isha Guha brings absolutely
nothing to the party.

I know Mark Nicholas doesn't work for Sky, but SA v Aus is on Skysports now.

If umpires can have howlers Nicholas excelled himself just a few minutes ago, with an 'and that's out' comment. 'Oh no, it isn't- There was definitely a sound on our stump mic'

Replay showed it missed the bat by a foot (no exaggeration) Bat did hit the ground though.

Don't take up umpiring, Nicholas.

Stick to what you are good at (whatever that is, because it's not commentating).

I remember Nicholas finding it hilarious on an occasion when Glenn McGrath was struck on the body by the ball while batting. It turned out that he had actually sustained broken or cracked ribs.

Good to see that Mike Selvey is back on board as a Sky pundit on the The Debate chaired by our old mate Charles Colvile.

Mike was rather unceremoniously ejected from TMS about a decade back. Something to do with a change in producer I think.

Our own James Franklin commentating on Sky today.

Very good, apart from saying 'Dee'Oliveira all the time, instead of 'D'oliveira'

Yes, I know I'm turning in to a grumpy old man!

Ex Sky pundit Paul Allott said in a recent article that he was browned off filling in time during lengthy rain breaks and happy to depart for the job as Director of Cricket at Lancashire.

There are several capable female commentators working for the different radio stations and television channels who include Alison Mitchell and Ebony Rainford-Brent. There will come a time when one's gender is not referred to anymore. A professional should be assessed on their ability to perform the role.

Sky are finding a need to evolve like any other channel/station so are going through a transitional period.
