Earlier in March, Sony Pictures Network (SPN) acquired the rights to broadcast overseas contests, both telecasting and online streaming, for a few countries, England is one of them. Recently, they broadcast Australia’s series versus the Brits. The much-hyped India’s tour of England is knocking on the door and is only a week away before the matches get underway.
Sony is set to broadcast the high-profile series and they have also announced their commentary panel. The list consists of a number of prominent names who have expertly plied their trade as cricket analysts and make the game available to the viewers in a crispier manner. The broadcast will also mark the return of the show Extra Innings.
The elite panel
The eminent figures who will grace their presence in the commentary box are former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly, England spinner Graeme Swann, Vivek Razdan, Ashish Nehra, Gaurav Kapur, Sanjay Manjrekar, Sunil Gavaskar, Harsha Bhogle, Deep Dasgupta, and Alan Wilkins. All the individuals have their unique style of explaining the events on the cricket pitch and they have their own significant fan base in the world of cricket.
India’s journey in England starts with a three-match T20I series followed by as many ODIs. Thereafter, Virat Kohli and his boys will play in five Tests which start in the first week of August. Last time, MS Dhoni’s men won the ODI series.
However, they floundered in the Test series and the one-off T20I. Prior to this tour, Kohli, the Indian skipper, has urged the fans to park 2014’s disappointment aside and support the team. India’s first assignment in the United Kingdom got underway today with their match against Ireland at the Malahide Cricket Ground in Dublin.
