If there is one thing that blindly supports a sport, it has to be the commentary of it. The viewing experience of any sport is incomplete without the commentators and their tireless efforts to educate us about the minute details related to it.

Cricket is no different and fans watching a match on TV or streaming it online always make sure they have the volume at the right level to not miss a single point brought forward by the people with the mic. A little history, unknown records or an analysis from a different perspective, the commentators put their heart and soul into turning the viewing experience of the fans to a remembered one.

Also, the best thing they do is not make commentary a monotonous practice. Thus, more often than not they try to add a sense of a funny and casual approach to their job and present to the fans the entertainment value of cricket as well.

However, on many occasions, they have been unable to limit their casual approach and have ushered words, either knowingly or unknowingly, which had the fans subjected to a laughter riot.

In the following lines, we take a look at some of the funniest words said by cricket commentators ever

1. “Ye wohi baat hui ki agar meri chachi ki munchhey hoti toh main use chacha kehta”

The master of punchlines in cricket commentary, Navjot Singh Sidhu has to be there at the top of the list when the discussion is around funny things said by the commentators. Among the many nerve-tickling moments that he has gifted with his voice during a game, one of his best came during an India-Pakistan match.

Pakistan needed 14 off the last two balls to win the game and Rameez Raza hoped against all the odds and said, “Agar ek ya do no ball ho jaaye aur fir six lag jaye toh Pakistan jeet jaayegi (If there are one or two no-balls and then two sixes are hit, Pakistan can win).”

Sidhu, at the other end, gave a hilarious reply and said, “Ye wohi baat hui ki agar meri chachi ki munchhey hoti toh main use chacha kehta (It’s like saying if my aunty had a moustache I would have called her uncle)”.
