I watched Nick Brett’s match last night and, personally, the commentator with 9 decades of being around bowls just did not cut it for me.  Since the beginning of the championships, there has been one of the players in the commentary box with Jason.  It’s a difficult sport on which to commentate because it’s not necessarily the fastest game around but it does need some upbeat comments.  Perhaps someone should send them some chocolate cake?  That worked for cricket commentators!

How would you approach commentating on a whole match?  Who would you want to partner you in the commentary box?
