It’s obvious he’s struggling in English language...
Not sure it was brave or stupid of him to accept the assignment.

I’m not sure if he had any previous experience of commentating in English. How SKY zeroed on him?

Nothing wrong in not being able to speak in English. It is not his first language. His English is not that much more worse than Wasim or Waqar. In fact I would say marginally better.However,I haven't seen any glimpse of any cricketing acumen or analysis from him.

 

I was hoping Bhajji would call it like it is but  his answers are the same diplomatic bs in the tone of any other commies we have like Manju,L.Siva,Sunny etc etc. What makes it worse is he can't even articulate that diplomatic bs properly which the other names I have mentioned have perfected.

 

In fact Sanga's fake accent is the most annoying thing ever. However,he has slowly won a lot of us over as I think he is a wonderful analyst and shows great understanding of the game.

Neither I have any idea in Bhajji Blast he was decent with his English while interviewing Willey and Wood.Austin 3:16 said it was for British Sikh community he was hired.Star would certainly sign him once he retires for Hindi team.

He was critical of Ishant and Rahane and at least supports us more than Manjrekar or Harsha.

wasn't he singing praises of Ishant after his 5 wicket haul? maybe I missed that part where he criticized him.

 

Rahane is probably the easiest punching bag in this team along with KL Rahul and maybe Umesh Yadav.

 

When asked about how poor Dhawan was regarding his dismissals since 2014, he skipped around that question.

Yes he did praise Ishant but before that he was critical if him wanted him to add 2-3 new deliveries in his pocket.Regarding Shikhar no idea when he was asked about it as we endure Bhogle Dada and Harsha and Swann in the pre and post match analysis.

Harbhajan: Ashwin is a handy batter, he started his carrier (sic) as a batter and then started bowling spin. It will be good if he can bat long and rescue India. 

BAM..Ashwin almost inside edges  and luckily to the pad.

 

Khoteya!

Bhajji jinxed Pujara bhai England ko hi jinx kara de yar unki tarif kar 

Bhajji talking like a fan:Talking about Pujara he is one of the batters who loves to bat really long.Here's hoping him and Virat have a long partnership and take the game till tomorrow :phehe:

Gower: Laughing and asking you are hoping for that aren't you?

Bhajji : like a small child who is telling his childhood dream to some one and we can hope for rain as well tomorrow ha ha ha 

Within two deliveries Pujara is bowled and complete silence from Harbhajan he is keeping quiet :hysterical:

I never followed the match but heard Harbhajan wanted Rohit in the side or apart from Mayank had no clue about upcoming batsman 

Yes, Nasser puts a question to Bhajji allmost knowing what he will answer and then puts statistical fact or technical fact to counter him.

i dont think it can happen because Nasser has excellent memory to remember all stats.

 Nasser must be doing this intentionally to collect Bajji gems for post match pub talk with English lads.

Isha: Stokes testing Kohli's back with the short ones

Bhajji:  Kohli's back is fine. Stokes needs to worry about his own back as you have you to bend your back to keep bowling these bouncers

Bhajji has been embarrassing, I don’t think he will get a gig after this

 

Those who can stream, BBC Radio TMS is great,  Sunny is surprisingly good on radio and more open with his opinions. there is another guy, Prakash, he is brilliant, should get him on TV commie

 

also Sanga has been a revelation...insight, analysis, once in awhile slips a story from his playing days

I hope Sanga gets pulled into IPL for commie

Forgot to post this one. Half ignorant/half amusing.

 

As India were ready to declare, the footage switched to a round, ungainly looking fellow in the Indian camp checking out some cricket balls keenly.

 

Ian Botham: (Chuckles) Is that the masseuse? Usually you'd get the bowling coach or bowler to choose the new ball.

 

Harbhajan Singh: Bharat Arun. Bowling coach. 

 

Awkward silence.

They have limited his appearance only once or twice where he only speaks for 5 minutes now :hysterical:
