Most irritating radio commentator (UK edition)

My money's on Blofeld to win this one hands down, but Boycott might run him close.

Personally I'll happily listen to most of them apart from Blofeld and Boycott, although Tuffers can be quite juvenile and doesn't add much insight. I think Ebony Rainford-Brent has been a really good addition - I do like listening to her, especially her understanding and enthusiasm for the women's game.

Perhaps I should have had two separate polls, one for summarisers and one for ball-by-ball commentators, but I've lumped them together.

Hard pushed to pick between Blofeld and Vaughan, but Vaughan's smugness wins.

Blowers or Boycott. Probably Boycott.

No Ed Smith?

Rarely listen to it these days with all the TV streams ...but Henry wins this hands down . Could stand a couple of mentions of pigeons or buses but after a few minutes...

Plus he made too many errors for my taste : colour at the expense of accuracy is not what I want in a commentator.

I forgot Ed Smith. Sorry. Can polls be edited? I guess not once people have started filling them in.

Slightly surprised to see so many votes for Agnew, he doesn't seem too bad to me.

I quite like Aggers as a commentator, not so much as an accommodating ECB yes man.
