Imagine watching a match without commentary, it will be dull and eventually you will lose interest within minutes. As with every sport, cricket commentary is also a vital part of the game.
Unlike the last season, this year's IPL has a trimmed down version of cricket commentators. The third version of the entertainment cricket saw as much as 17 commentators divided in three groups traveling in groups to cover matches.
The previous version also had a fair representation of different countries at the commentators’ box. As Pakistan cricket team is touring West Indies, commentators from both these nations are not part of the group in this IPL; nor are the Sri Lankans.
On the official Web site, the Sahara IPL awards was also a hit in 2010, this year, we are also missing that. Unlike cricketers, their performance is not based on form. So, I decided to rate the commentators when there are still many matches to come.
To make the list a bit more challenging and interesting I decided to select only one commentator from a country.
Read on my list doesn't feature Bradd Hogg in the number one position.
