Salman Khan, the Bollywood actor, graced his presence in the commentary box during the Final of the 2018 Indian Premier League between the Chennai Super Kings and the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Anil Kapoor, another popular actor, also tried his hand at commentary. Both were present to promote their upcoming movie Race 3, which is scheduled to hit the screens on June 15.

During his stint, the ‘Dabangg’ star, heaped praises on MS Dhoni, the CSK skipper, and hailed him as the best skipper of the sport ever. The 52-year old also expressed his gratitude towards Dhoni for playing the gentleman’s game with dignity. Salman has found himself tangled in several controversies, but that hasn’t diminished his fan-following to any extent.


Irfan Pathan was a part of Star Sports’ broadcasting team for the entire event and did a stupendous job sharing his expert opinion with a unique style. He was a part of the Hindi commentary and live shows if the posts from fans on social media is anything to go by, they loved Pathan who was until last year a part of the IPL as a player in his new avatar.
