The Commentators was a one-off name used for the song, "N-N-Nineteen Not Out", a 1985 UK hit single recorded by the impressionist Rory Bremner as a parody of Paul Hardcastle's number one hit, "19". Bremner impersonated BBC television and radio cricket commentators such as John Arlott, Richie Benaud, Brian Johnston, Jim Laker and Fred Trueman, replacing Hardcastle's references to the Vietnam War with references to the 1984 Test series between England and the West Indies in which the England captain David Gower had averaged 19 and the 1932-3 "Bodyline" cricket tour.
