MUMBAI: The official broadcaster of the India tour of England, Sony Pictures Networks India (SPN), announces its all-star panel line-up and programming initiatives for the series, beginning from 3rd July 2018 till 11th September 2018. The series, spanning a little over two months, comprises three T20s, three ODIs and five Test matches which will be played across nine venues in the U.K.

SPN’s celebrated live wraparound show, Extraaa Innings comes back for the high-octane bilateral cricket series, between two of the best cricket teams in the world, with a whole new look. Apart from the rethought set design, the show will now feature personality-driven segments for a healthy dose of entertainment and increased fan engagement to bring the Indian touch to the analyses.

Showcasing pre, mid and post-match analyses of the tour, Extraaa Innings will feature expert insights from an impressive line-up of cricketing personalities like Sourav Ganguly, Ashish Nehra, Sanjay Manjrekar, Graeme Swann, Sunil Gavaskar, Harsha Bhogle, Gaurav Kapur, Deep Dasgupta, Vivek Razdan and Alan Wilkins. To ensure an unparalleled viewing experience for fans across India, the series will be broadcast with English and Hindi commentary on SONY SIX and SONY TEN 3 channels respectively.

The Sports cluster of SPN also unveils its marketing campaign, ‘Kya Hoga Iss Baar’. The 40-second campaign film has been inspired by the uncertainty that comes when India tours England. Every time India has toured England, the results have bordered on extreme. From ecstatic and memorable victories to forgettable defeats (especially in Tests), Indians have witnessed it all. 

'What would happen this time around?' was the obvious question that was asked about the upcoming tour. This message has been conveyed in a tongue-in-cheek way while building enough intrigue for viewers to tune in. The film ends with a cheeky line with reference to the incident during India's famous NatWest trophy win when Ganguly waved his shirt from the balcony at Lord's.
