Star News line up to encash on cricket mania

MUMBAI: Star News is all set to cash in on the Indo-Pak cricket mania with its special show on the India-Pak series called Wah! Cricket starting Thursday, 11 March 2004.

STAR News has lined up reportage and analysis of the historic Indo Pak series. The channel has roped in Pakistan's ace-bowler and former captain Wasim Akram to speculate the results of the day's game, comment on and discuss the teams' performances along with former Indian cricketer Sandeep Patil who will be the STAR News resident expert for this show.

The line up includes two shows at 7:30 pm and 10:30 pm with Rameez Hasan Raja, former Pakistan captain and currently chief executive of the Pakistan Cricket Board presenting his analysis and comments of the day's game.

A live Q&A section on Wah! Cricket will give viewers across the country a chance to direct their questions to STAR News' resident expert Sandeep Patil. Viewers can also call in with their queries on the match and the India-Pak series.

To add to the cricket fever, ace-mimic Suresh Menon will present the day's happenings in his original and entertaining style in Silly Point.

The programme will also show first-hand interviews with the common people on the street in both India and Pakistan as they scrutinise how the series will help in improving relations between India and Pakistan.
