Hard act to follow
Trent Dalton throws down the challenge to the commentary team of Adam Gilchrist and Shane Warne (“It’s complicated”, Dec 1-2). But “Church” and Warnie” have big shoes to fill. Will any duo, no matter how charismatic, ever come close to the banter and entertainment provided by Bill Lawry and Tony Greig? Challenge accepted? Let’s hope so.

I have Fox Sports and am a cricket lover but there is no way I will watch it while Shane Warne is a commentator. If they do their research they will find this is one of their biggest problems.

What a great read. I’m only moderately familiar with the great names in Aussie cricket and the stories around them but my extra pleasure came from the fact that I read it without noticing the author. As I finished the last succinct paragraph, I thought: “This has got to be by Trent Dalton.” And it was!
