I'm sorry to be going. I didn't have the right mentality for coaching and I like talking, I like language. The broadcasting felt right. And I think there's a lot left in the tank. I want to stay in broadcasting because I think I'm quite good at it and I love it," added Gower. <p></p><blockquote class="twitter-tweet"> <p></p><p dir="ltr" lang="en">It feels very strange knowing that the Sky days are done but a huge thank you to all those with whom I have worked over those 20 years.

It has been great fun and I can't thank Sky enough for keeping me close to the game I love," added Botham. <p></p> <p></p>"I've commentated on so many great moments. All good things come to an end and I can watch the game as a fan now," concluded Botham.
