Give the man a break

Robinson was a fool but who hasn’t been while a teenager. He has apologised so move in. ECB totally over reacted

Bowlers vs Batsmen

I’d like the producers and the presenters of TMS to listen back to how they have covered this series in terms of criticism of bowlers vs batsmen and then look at the scorecards.

Hail Michael Vaughn

Michael Vaughn is a rare star in modern day commentary; he has an opinion and he is brave enough to express it, unlike so many commentators who daren't say boo to a goose. Without MV BBC cricket commentary would be beyond dull, now that we have lost the great Boycott. Needless to say Aggers is above reproach and always first class.
