Not only he is a super excellent commentator but one of the extremely few Australian commentators who bravely stands with the truth.
He remains the only one who, soon after taking the mic, pointed his finger to Ricky Pointing...
YOU CAN NOT STAND OUT THERE AND ARGUE WITH THE UMPIRE

...... while Tony Greg and all other suckers acted as if Ponting has the full right to rip apart umpire's prestige.
 
ponting was a big prat to do that to the best umpires in the world.

no respect for our aleem, hope he gets punished for his finger-waging behavior.
 
I don't understand what can he argue about.

It was a fair call from Aleem Dar

tony grieg and Ian chappel are just there to please India
 
Lawry, Bishop and Bumble (for a little comic relief)

That would be my ideal commentary team

The ones mentioned above added to Lawry, Bishop and Bumble along with holding would be my ideal comm team. All say it as it is no matter what that's what makes them special. Lucky to have them around
 
He's a legend but anyone else been a bit disappointed by him in this series? He is almost always talking about Australia. Still great to hear him talk about the game though. Speaks volumes about how good he is that I like to hear what he says even when he is being biased

I think he's a bit disappointed with Pakistan.

I don't know about the ODIs but I felt he was making excessive fun of the Pakistanis in the Tests.

Better get Misbah onto that pronto. As self appointed moral police for the media Misbah should have stern words with Bill. :)








Stay calm Its a joke peeps
 
LEGEND.

Watching cricket is SO MUCH BETTER when Bill is commentating!! So much passion, energy in his voice. Great insights too.

hey, i'm a big fan of Lawry. just a small thing I noticed however.
 
Says it how it is irrespective of who the player is, which is good to see.
 
I also like his energy in the commi box, he's always exciting to listen to
 
Got em yes, its all happening

Is there any chance Bill is going to commentate when we tour Aus later this year? Please

No chance, Lawry is very loyal and I don't think he will go to any other network.

Would be good if commentates but I doubt it.
 
I don't think we tour Australia. It's vice versa.

Maybe the poster is Indian? Either way, Lawry hardly commentates these days. He's only done the MCG Tests the past few years. And now with 9 no longer having the cricket, he might be done.

I am Pakistani, I assumed we were going to Aus later this year. I was mistaken, it turns out that they are visiting us, ah well
