Isa Guha

Stealing a living as a pundit - wooden at the best of times, offers very little input behind the mic and has next to knowledge of the County Cricket Scene.

Some more dodgy commentary by Isa Guha in the Kia Super League final

Refers tomorrows T20 Blast Finals Day as "the men's game" and the KIa Super League Finals Day as "the women's game"

I am sure the tournament sponsors will be pleased with the lack of company branding, let alone the sexist language used.

Her commentary performance in the Roses T20 was indeed irritating.

Told a story about the hell-ish commute from London to Old Trafford, nearly got mowed over by a cyclist, forgot her media accreditation and complained about having to blag her way in. Then made a snobbish remark about the Roses T20 crowds being rowdy and boisterous whilst the London T20 crowds are more civilised. The Roses is the oldest cricketing rivalry, let alone history between the two counties, of course there will be no love lost between the fans. One Roses match i've seen fighting outside the gates between a stocky lad and a lad in Where's Wally fancy dress, the latter throwing some right punches.

Definitely got the job on her cricketing background than punditry ability. I think Legsidelizzy is commentating/presenting in this final and she is doing a splendid job on the mic.

Can we add Andrew Flintoff to the list? He's dfeadful, too excitable, and to be honest cringy. When he comes onto commentate, i either have to mute the sound or turn channel over

He's part of this "laddish" culture.

Doesn't really go well on sporting commentary. If there was a rumbing sound from the air yesterday it was probably John Arlott turning in his grave.
