Their analysis and unforgettable calls made a lasting stamp on cricket history during that historic match. And fans can anticipate more of the same brilliance in the 2023 World Cup.

Former players are not the only ones on the commentary crew. Former international players such as the perceptive Shaun Pollock, the prolific Waqar Younis, the talented Anjum Chopra, and the outspoken Michael Atherton have joined this cricketing galaxy.
Their combined expertise and understanding of the game will give fans unrivalled insight and commentary.
Some of the world’s best broadcasters, each of whom has contributed classic moments to cricket history, round out this exceptional group. Harsha Bhogle, Kass Naidoo, Mark Nicholas, Natalie Germanos, Mark Howard, and Ian Ward will polish the broadcast to ensure fans have a world-class cricketing experience.
As I have told you, ICC has set the stage for a memorable World Cup. These commentators will become part of Iconic moments. Richie Benaud has been etched into the memories of Pakistanis due to his commentary on the 92 final.
These commentators will improve our comprehension and enjoyment of the game we love. And they will do that with a great combination of cricketing knowledge, skill, and narrative.
