Gower and his quirks

I’m watching a video which I’ll mention in another post, and in it I keep hearing David Gower mispronounce players’ names. Well, it’s not as though they’re technically incorrect inunciations – they’re just different. Gower has his own, very Hampshire style, and is more and more a legend of the comm box. For instance, he doesn’t say WAZim AKram. He pronounces it waZEEM aKRUM. And as for Murali, well it comes out as Muttiah Murali-durham.

Anyway. As you were.
