Snooker fans loving ‘young and refreshing’ Jack Lisowski in BBC commentary box

Jack Lisowski made his debut in the BBC commentary box on Sunday night and appeared to make a good impression among snooker fans.

The world number 14 commentated with Alan McManus for the BBC during Jud Trump’s second round clash against David Gilbert.

It happened the day before Lisowski himself crashed out of the World Championship after falling to 13-9 defeat to world number 3 Neil Robertson.

And Lisowski seemed to impress many fans during his stint behind the microphone where he gave insights on certain shots to play, Judd Trump’s personality away from snooker and how he recently practised with David Gilbert in Tamworth.

Lisowski also revealed that his commentary partner McManus was the first snooker player he ever spoke to when he met him as a child while the latter was playing in the Welsh Open.

Snooker fans appeared love Jack Lisowski’s insight throughout his commentary stint.

James McGarrity tweeted: “Actually really good to have @JackLisowski in the commentary box tonight. Someone young and fresh, Good not to hear the DDK malarky and the 85 final being spoken about for once

Suzy tweeted: “I like @JackLisowski on comms this evening. Not just the insight but as a West Country person living in London it feels like listening to a bit of home.”

Debbie Dymont tweeted: “Iā€™m enjoying @JackLisowski in commentary, very refreshing.”

And The Metro’s Phil Haigh tweeted: “Been enjoying @AlanMac1990 and @JackLisowski throughout this but that little story at the end made it all the better. A lovely bit of stuff from Jack saving that story up about meeting Angles as a kid.”

  1. Liwoski is appalling. I can hardly understand him with his poor diction. Get rid! I’m a native English speaker but have to really concentrate to understand his mumblings.
