ESS to launch cricket show featuring Saurav

MUMBAI: After Sachin Tendulkar it is now the turn of Indian skipper Saurav Ganguly to feature on ESPN Star Sports (ESS) as a host. He in conjunction with ESS commentator and anchor Harsha Bhogle will present ESPN's Cricket Show.

The show will air every Friday at 9:30 pm from 26 September. It will take a hard look at the week's cricket played across the world with national and international stars like batting maestros Sachin Tendulkar, legendary Sunil Gavaskar and Geoffrey Boycott providing the cutting edge. Every week the show will have studio guests connected to the world of cricket. An official release informs that the show will also travel to cricket destinations outside India. Australia will be the shows first stopover during the India's away tour to Australia.

The show will use innovative tools like Virtual Spectator. The drama will unfold on a set designed in Australia by world-class designer Brian Nickless providing the show a very contemporary and almost futuristic look with the state of the art graphics. Brian Nickless is currently the art director of the, yet to be released film Mad Max IV.

ESS MD RC Venketeish said, "ESPN Star Sports, through ESPN Cricket Show, will present the game of cricket in its entirety to the viewer. An interactive analysis of the week's cricket played the world over by the experts and the India captain will give the viewer a unique perspective. Besides cricket's on-pitch excitement ESPN Cricket Show will entertain viewers with on-ground initiatives, talent -hunts consumer contests and the new Super Selector."

Ganguly added, "I have enjoyed the challenging experience of writing a column for newspapers and websites. I believe that the ESPN Cricket Show will offer me the chance to share my philosophy of the game with an enlightened audience. I am looking forward to joining Harsha Bhogle in presenting the ESPN Cricket Show to the knowledgeable fans, some of whom I expect to be interacting with on the show as well."

Bhogle, who has 25 years of cricket commentary under his belt said, "For years now, I have had the opportunity of interacting with some of the best in the business. However, knowing Sourav's incisive analysis and eloquence, I believe I am in for a great time."

Sunil Gavaskar will offer tips to young cricketers and make his observations from Sunny's Corner, from various venues in India and overseas. The stars who will feature in the show include Dean Jones, former Windies paceman Ian Bishop, Martin Crowe (New Zealand), Jonty Rhodes and Pat Symcox (South Africa).
