MUMBAI: ESPN STAR Sports' Super Selector, the popular cricket game show that set world records in online participation, is coming up with a new format from September. It will become "India's first live and interactive game show" once the new series kicks off.

An interactive element has been added to the show where randomly selected participants in Super Selector will be contacted live over the phone and quizzed about their knowledge of cricket. The Super Selector participants will have to be at home to take the live call from the hosts. Correct answers offers the chance to win exciting prizes such as a car, motorbike and the like.

The winner of the monthly Super Selector gets the mega prize, which is an opportunity to share the commentary box with other cricket legends, an official release states

The entry mechanism has been extended to accommodate more cricket enthusiasts whereby apart from the online entry, the participants will now have an option to enter simply by sending a competition post card or fax.

The concept of mini Super Selector has been introduced whereby in addition to selecting their favourite cricket teams, the participants can now opt to select only the top three players - best batsman, best bowler, best wicket-keeper - for the month.

The weekly live show will be hosted by Darain Shahidi and Poonam Sharma, and will be joined by host of cricket experts and celebrities from India and around the world, including Geoffrey Boycott, Navjyot Singh Siddhu, Naseeruddin Shah, Cyrus Broacha and Harsha Bhogle.

"The new live and interactive Super Selector will be more accessible, more rewarding and will offer a more enriched experience to the millions of cricket fans across the sub-continent," Manu Sawhney, managing director of ESPN Software India was quoted as saying in the release.

The Super Selector September game entries start from 1 September and closes on 12 September. The first on-air game show will take place on 19 September.
