New Delhi Ind vs Eng: The four-match Test series between India and England starts on 5 February. The official broadcaster of this series has announced a panel of commentary team. The commentary panel has included all the veterans who will be well analyzed in the matches of the series. Star Sports has just announced a commentary panel in English and Hindi.
In the four-match Test series in English you will find Harsha Bhogle, Nick Knight, March Butcher, Sunil Gavaskar, Deep Das Gupta, Murali Karthik and Laxman Sivaramakrishnan commenting, while the Hindi team has former openers Akash Chopra, Gautam Gambhir, VVS Laxman , Harbhajan Singh, Ashish Nehra and Irfan Pathan will be heard. However, commentators in English, Sunil Gavaskar and Deep Das Gupta, will also be seen commenting in Hindi.
It is being told that this series is very long. In such a situation, some more names can be added to this list, but currently these same veterans have been included in the commentary panel. All the giants in the commentary panel have been nominated by the Board of Control for Cricket in India, ie BCCI. This is the reason that former opener and cricket expert Sanjay Manjrekar’s name is not included in this list, as Star Sports is the official broadcaster of BCCI for domestic cricket.
Sanjay Manjrekar was seen commentating during the series of the three formats played between India and Australia, but all of them were broadcast on the Sony Sports Network. In such a situation, BCCI could not interfere in that. However, Sanjay Manjrekar has often mailed the BCCI that he should be included in the commentary panel again. Manjrekar was dropped from the commentary team due to some controversies.
