  1. I hope that the Poms are at least competitive, they certainly appear to have rolled over against Enzed.

  2. Bumble had a great NZ series!
    “Close to the edge!” “Yes” “Good band”…very droll.
    He was relishing the frigid Yorkshire weather and the stoicism of the locals.
    The Kiwis are good. Bell’s form is a worry for England and they don’t know what to do with Moeen Ali. But the ball’s swinging so Australia’s vulnerable.
    Great promo – what about Mikey’s “Richie Benaud”. Gold.

    Bumble is a great commentator, very funny, made the 9 commentary somewhat ok!

  4. An obvious rip-off of my Gold Coast match report.
    Should I sue?

  5. Paddy Grindlay says

    Brilliant stuff

  6. Wayne Ball says

    One of the better sports promo’s I’ve seen in a long time. Well done to Sky UK. Can’t wait for it to get started.
