ESPN unveils hindi presentation team for Ind-Eng series
ESPN STAR Sports today announced a high-profile presentation team for hindi telecast of the India-England cricket series on STAR Cricket.
Informing this, a release here said star studded expert panel will have legendary cricketers like Kapil Dev, Navjot Singh Sidhu, Ramiz Raja, Arun Lal, Saurav Ganguly and noted cricket journalist Ayaz Memon, amongst others.
Speaking on the occasion, Kapil Dev said, "I have been thinking for better part of past two decades why is that Hindi commentary is not pushed on live cricket. Cricket is followed not just in metros but across the country, in villages, in towns.
Look at the current Indian team - Dhoni, Zaheer, Harbhajan, all of them come from small towns/cities. It is the need of hour and I am glad that STAR Cricket has taken this initiative in launching a quality product in Hindi language." The India-England series, beginning from November 15, will be broadcast by ESPN STAR Sports.
While STAR Cricket will telecast the Hindi presentation, STAR Sports and STAR Cricket HD will have the English version.
