Top Cricket Commentators
Affectionately called the Bradman of broadcasting, Richie Benaud is undoubtedly the most respected and experienced cricket commentator today. He is a veteran in the truest sense of the word and has been commentating ever since the mid 1960s. Richie Benaud began his career as a radio commentator with BBC, but gradually shifted to television. He worked in Britain for Channel 4 and was associated with England cricket commentary for a good 42 years and for over 500 Tests. This association was only recently broken when Channel 4 lost the broadcasting rights of the England cricket matches to Sky Sports. Richie Benaud has however not completely retired from his job as a commentator and will continue with Australias Channel 9.
