If David Lloyd (see Heroes: David Lloyd) is probably the most universally loved member of the Sky Sports cricket team then Charles Colville must be the most disliked.
We sometimes ponder that Sky deliberately keeps Colville in employment so they can justify their otherwise mostly exclusive policy of recruiting ex-England captains to its commentary team.
Colville is everything you don't want a cricket commentator to be. He is smug, irritating, ignorant, tells appalling jokes and if he was any more reactionary he could serve in Robert Mugabe's government. His style would be more suited to trash television like Britain's Got Talent, and funnily enough if you think of a dumbed down version of Piers Morgan then voila you have Colville.
Some detractors of Colville (are there any supporters?) would say that at least he is part of Sky's second string and is limited to highlights, international matches not involving England and domestic cricket. But for those of us that work, that highlights package is normally the only chance we get to see England in test action during the week.
There are still groans every time in the Reverse Sweep house whenever Colville's ugly mug appears on the screen. Indeed we sometimes wonder if Bob Willis' acid tongue and extreme vehemence at times is as a result of having to spend an inordinately long period of time next to the grinning jackass Colville.
There are many bad cricket commentators worldwide - Bill Lawry, Danny Morrison and Laxman Sivaramakrishnan immediately spring to mind, but Colville has to be the worst of them. As the man himself would say "Got him!", you are truly a Reverse Sweep zero Charles.
