We call him "losinjaraya" that is in sinhala for a toffee as he speaks as if with a losinjarayak in the mouth. If you want a Sri Lankan batsman to get out, get Ranjith to commentry because his "katawaha" is excellent!

Hmm agreed but i really like his sweet voice. He has a cheerful, sexy voice.
Ok ok... i know you guys must be cursing me.. but i like watching matches when he's the commentator :) :)

Next most irritating thing for me apart from seeing sanath getting out after playing a rash shot is when Ranjith Fernando takes the commentary position.

Ground_Boy said...

Ranjith Fernando truly sucks. Bring back Ranil Abeynaike or Roshan Abeysinghe.

Kapuwa said...

I agree with the Katawaha theory.It does work against the Sri Lankans.

Why isn't Roshan Abeysinghe in? He I believe is a better chap to do the job.

Hi all,

Not just him his wife is horrible too. She once did a bridal for one of my best friends and messed it up after charging 50,000 rupees.

ranjit sucks because he brags about sri lanka too much. he is worse than an indian commentator when the side's doing well. this behaviour seems to be compensating for the colonial chip carried around by older sri lankans of his generation. it looks really gay when we then go on to lose. he should therefore not go overboad in talking up our chances.

secondly he sucks because he only has one type of pitch. when he expresses surprise for instance, its just faster and louder. the pitch matters if you want to communicate subtle changes in mood to the listeners at home. they cant see your face after all. ranjit being cynical or sarcastic is always the same. it just has that same whiny quality to it.

to his credit, the man has a nice face. looks very wise and learned, a kind of eastern guru with his greying hair and no frills glasses. i also like ranjit giving the commentary with his glasses stuck up on his broad manly forehead. admittedly the man has a very good forehead.

Ha ha... come on don't be so harsh. It's actually fun to listen to this guy. The grammar he uses is funny, just sit there and laugh at his commentary and enjoy it!

Why dont we all get together and sign a cricket ball like AI and ask fernando to "respect human rights" and stop this torture. Or alternatively we can write a letter 2 the network.

RanjithFernandoSucks said...

Guys who say that certain people are not "classy" enough to go to Ranjit Fernando's wife saloon.

This is the exact mentality that I am highlighting here. There are more instances about how partial Ranjit gets with the so called “Colombo-crowd” versus the “village-cricketers.” Obviously, Ranjit wouldn’t dare say something about people like Sanath, so he doesn’t. But for some new-entrants, he’s been saying some stuff that are totally uncalled for. All this will be highlighted in due course.

>j Dizz from west coast st clair
I see why you like Ranjit so much. You speak quite like him.

RajaMaru said...

Anyone who speak the English language well, can spell, know the grammar and know enough about the game of cricket knows Ranjit Fernando is the worst commentator on the air today.

Ironically Ranjit has played cricket with my father (NCC), and my father says he was a good cricketer during his day.... emphasiz on "his day"! Unfortunately during that time our Sri Lankan Cricketers were minnovs... who got thrashed by the suddas and kalu-suddas alike. Yes, we did have good cricketers in the past, but the rest of the world had better ones. Not so anymore as our game has changed and we are on top of our game... The same transition has to happen in our media communications as well.... We need to find commentators from the new era, new blood with a good command in the language, the game and the wit to match the other commentators from other countries, most whom are players who recently left the game. Other than Aravinda de Silva who recently did the job during the England tour we haven't had any one from that era ( he was okay but rather slow in his come back, answers and lot of dead air in bitween). This is due to that fact that no one paid any attention to help sharpen those player's communication skills, while they were still playing. If anyone rememer, the most commonly used sentence those days by our players was "our boys did well" which I think got started with Arjuna. Most of the players had a hard time expressing themselves during interviews. If someone was smart enough to pick on this and trained some of them, then Ranjit wouldn't be here today.

I remember Murali Struggling a lot back then and so did Sanath. Although they are not in current Mahela or Sanga's level, at least it shows they have improved and in the future they could do a better job, dare I say... than Ranjit!

So as much as Ranjit sucks, I also blame our system, which needs to change and adapt new thinking just like our game has changed. Get guys trained, not necessarily test players, but others who know enough about the game (but train the test players as well, especially the ones from the rual areas). I hear Ranil has done a great job, and so has a few others mentioned on this blog... Are they not in there because of our usual favouritism and influence I wonder...? Worse yet... What if the Sudda asks for Ranjit so that they can laugh at him and make a mockery of our country... After all, our players are beating the rest of the world on the cricket field, so this could be their way of getting back at us. Either way we need to change this... at least untill Mahela and Sanga finishes their Cricketing careers and wrestle the micraphone away from Ranjit!

Jack Point said...

Ranjit Fernando is good, the really bad one is Brian Thomas.

Mahela? One word. Brilliant.

Insightful quotes from Ranjit Fernando

"What Jayasuriya will be trying to do is to hit the ball with the bat and
get runs in order to win the match."

"If Ireland can get 8 or 9 quick wickets, they could be in with a chance."

"One would say that the team that scores more runs, should go on to win the
game."

"It's a four. Oh no! He's out! He's clean bowled!I thought it went for
four!"

I AM VERY THANKFUL TO AUTHOR FOR GIVING THIS RARE CHANCE TO MAKE A COMMENT ABOUT THIS GUY CALLED "Ranjith Fernando"

AND FINALLY I SUGGED IF SOMEBODY HAVE TO START A PAGE LIKE THIS TO ANOTHER SINHALA COMMENTATOR WHO KNOWN AS A "Premasiri Epasingha"

RF sucks real bad behind the mic, but I guess he sucks real good off air to have some fans like the ones who have posted their comments supporting the looser.

Anonymous said...

I think this blog is done by someone who is trying to get into the position RF is in. I think he is a good commentator, take for instance Aravinda in England could not put together words, he may improve later, but as of now RF is the best we have. None of the others mentioned come close to him, though his standards are not high.

Anonymous said...

RF has taken more Sri Lankan wickets than anyone else in the world. Only twice he did not start commentating at the begining of the SL inning, Sana scored two centuries. Guys / Girls please take a note of this.... if you go back to the begining of the world cup and find how many times we lost wickets during RF on air... you will be amaized : my count is more than 10 and Sana got caught 100%.

Please Ranjit do this nation a favour quit commentating. We need to win the world cup, Aussies don't need your help!

To dj dizz or whatever you call yourself, Yeah I'm talking to the wannabe Borat and his gay friends. Stop pretending you're from St Claire, you're probably selling spare parts in panchikawatta. Your grammar and spelling certainly place you in the slums of Mahiyawa.
The blog is created for people who hate RF to went their anger. If you love him, you should create a blog of your own and see how many others have wet dreams about RF's big forehead. If you're looking for a sugar daddy to fill your gay hole, you're looking at the wrong man coz the last time I checked he was taken.

First of all!! All Sri Lankan commentators should learn how to pronounce the name of the game. It is not kreeeeeekut, it Cricket! Its not veeekut it is wicket For Gods sake learn English and then dream of being a commentator next. As for Ranjit Fernando.....does anyone have a gun I can borrow???

Anonymous said...

Yesterday when I was watching ESPN, in an interview, Duleep Mendis, CEO & Thilanga Sumithipala - President, BCCSL, said that they will appoint Ranjit Fernando as the manager of the next SL cricket series.
