Pleasant, chatty and insightful commentary too making very good overall coverage.

Not always insightful.....

.. My favourite little tranche of the commentary was when Mr Gibson was going on and on about how England have told Craig Overton to bowl faster. He was saying this during a few overs... and then saying "And he certainly looks as though he's added a yard or two of pace - I've never seen him bowl so quickly etc etc."

That's because it was Jamie that was bowling at the time!

I can't work out, for the life of me, why Gibson can't tell them apart.

I couldn't tell them apart in the pub or in the street. Or even standing in the slips. BUT the one place where it's super easy to tell them apart is when they are actually bowling .... because Jamie has that thing where he almost always insists on following through in an exaggerated way until he is underneath the nose of the batsman.. and Craig doesn't bother with that wasted energy.
