When prompted to e-mail the BBC and ECB with feedback on this season’s cricket commentaries, Yates sent one response to the BBC and a fuller response to the ECB. Yates has previously expounded his support for the County commentary teams.
Praise is given where due but so is criticism. If you’re new to DCTWO then please take it as read that as a Surrey supporter I am a big fan of Mark Church and Johnny Barran’s commentaries. Some people (*cough* Michael Vaughan *cough*) would do well to embrace their Twitter presences and bring them to the commentary box – his recent tweets have been much better than his TMS output. TMS in its current state is a vastly inferior product to what it used to be – it needs overhauling.
That said, so does anything in the ECB which Giles Clarke and Paul Downton have had anything to do with.
Yates is looking forward to reading KP’s autobiography.
Thank you to all involved in the County Cricket Commentaries during 2014. May you all winter well.
