Kass Naidoo, Cricket’s Female Commentator

I see a lot of people are trying to find out the identity of South Africa’s (and the world’s, if I’m not mistaken) only female cricket commentator on television. I believe her name is Kass Naidoo. You can hear her talk during international cricket matches in South Africa, like the recent series against Australia. You can also find a profile and more information here.

UPDATE: Scratch that; her name is Claire Cowan. (Thanks, commenter.) Can’t find much info on her online (she may or may not be an ex-cricket player?), though Achettup from Short Of A Length isn’t impressed with her commentary:

The two women (aha shocked you didn’t I, you thought there was only one… so did I until I looked it up, they sound exactly the same and even worse seem to say exactly the same things), Claire Cowan and Natalie Germanos try a bit too hard to sound knowledgeable while desperately searching for some way to get their male counterparts to say something interesting. I don’t mind them too much, but I get the feeling that Bumble, Boycs and Chappel would make mince meat out of them.
