Always entertaining, couldn't agree more. Definitely a hero!


Hear, hear! I'm one of many, I imagine, who will watch cricket with the sound down and TMS on, and I'll go to whatever lengths I need to, wherever I happen to be in the world (moving to San Francisco next, which is a terrible time-zone to be in for cricket. not amused!).

Blowers is a legend, and TMS is always better when he's on the roster.


Absolutely, Blowers is a hero. Love his commentary. People that disagree baffle me completely.

Although in defence of recently retired cricketers, I am most taken with the Blofeld / Tufnell combination. The combinations are important. Aggers and Boycott for example. What you don't want, is Alec Stewart and anyone else.

Sorry - can't agree. I've always found him very tedious - his eccentricities are contrived and he simply doesn't know enough about cricket.

Martin Moseling

A hero who has at least played first class cricket (which, of course, many of his critics haven't)and brings his unique brand of jazz hatting to the TMS box. Very much an acquired taste through. I disliked him to begin with but have become a convert as I have with Tufnell.
