Why i think David Gower is the best cricket commentator in the world.......

As he watched Adam Gilchrist (93 in 51 balls right now) and Michael Clarke (125 in 158 right now) hammer England into Ashes oblivion, David Gower came up with the following nugget - this is in my view the greatest line in cricket commentary in a long long time.....

David Gower, wondering if Gilchrist will break the record for fastest Test ton - it's held by Viv Richards; 56 balls. "I was there," he begins, "I was captain of England at the time - that's a loose term."

  1. I heard it too, that was a good one.

    Botham also said he hoped the record went to Gilchrist since he had the pleasure of bowling to Viv that day!

    It was nice that Gilly said Viv deserves the record.
