ESPN-Star launching 'Super Selector' 21 September

It was way back in March that Sony Entertainment Television announced it was brewing its own unique version of reality television centred around cricket, whose driving force would be a great level of interactivity with the viewing public. 

Nothing more has been heard on that front but ESPN-Star Sports is readying for launch on September 21 an interactive show of its own to challenge the knowledge of cricket fans with Super Selector. 

And the incentive to participate? An opportunity to share the commentary box with cricket legends. Well known actor and cricket enthusiast Naseeruddin Shah will host the preview and review shows of Super Selector. The preview show will discuss the possibilities for the next month while the review show will feature the analysis of the players' performances around the world. 

Super Selector will be the first simulcast feature programme on ESPN and STAR Sports and will be a complete integrated, interactive and innovative cricket game show which provides an opportunity for viewers to demonstrate knowledge of the game. Viewers get a chance to determine if they can do a better job of selecting the best international cricket team than Sunil Gavaskar, Geoffrey Boycott or Ravi Shastri. A dream team will be having five batsmen, four bowlers, one wicket keeper and one all-rounder. The viewer can substitute three team members before the 21st of each month. 

While cricket experts nominate their own teams, all the participants will actually get to play this game against the best of talent in the world of international cricket. ESS has created this opportunity exclusively for viewers to get more closely involved in the game of cricket, a company release says.
