    Is Shamim Chowdhury one of the best commentators around these days?

    Seems to be very knowledgeable and very underrated. Really impressed with his commentary.

    Definitely he also seems to me as underrated.But he is still not one of the best.He is knowledgeable but needs to learn the art of variety in throwing speech.

    No one can beat Fazeer Mohammad.... No one has got knowledge like him and his commentary never bores you. A perfect commentary but you hardly get to listen him.
    Yes Shamim is underrated.. He is more than good

    I disagree about Fazeer.

    He does and DID bore me. The game is tensely poised in a huge chase in the 4th innings (WI vs ZIM) and the guy can't even be bothered to talk about the game. Has to talk about racial composition of Trinidad club sides in 1930, or other non-related subjects.

    Shamim Chowdhury has a pleasant voice and he's a nice guy but he doesn't understand modern white ball cricket.

    You mean Shamim Chowdhury of Bangladesh?

    He has a really good voice and vocabulary but he doesn't have the playing experience and also needs to understand modern cricket a bit better

    Good commentator, but too biased when Bangladesh are playing. Only pakistani and british commies are completely neutral.

    Shamim Choudhary, the guy who always says mindless things like "cricket is a game of glorious uncertainties" and thinks anything he doesnt like can only be described in the English language as "tentative"? That Shamim Choudhary?

    He is the worst commentator in the history of commentating.

    Ian bishop is probably the most well rounded commie out there. Powerful voice, good english, good expressions, playing experience, and good knowledge.

    I find him barely tolerable. I'm sorry but I find Bangladeshi commentators horrible and unfathomably listenable.

    Athar Ali Khan and Shamim Chaudary are easily the worst commentators on international cricket/league cricket.

    Ramiz raza is the worst one. Next is Shamim whatever his name is.

    Shamim should be Bangladesh's only commentator in ICC tournaments. Infinitely better than Athar Ali Khan, who is the Ramiz Raja of BD cricket.

    One of the worst commentators. Does not have proper command over english. Slightly better then the worst commentator cricket has ever seen Ather Ali Khan.

    Personally, I think Shamim is ok. Athers, Nassir Hussain, Warne and Bishop are my favourites. Also, have heard Urooj Mumtaz for the first time today, and she's seems pretty confident, establishing a rapport with the other commentators and actually had something to add, rather than just describing the action only
