Samsung Cricket Show on ESPN with Shastri & Akram

Indian cricket team captain Sourav Ganguly along with Mr Reliable Rahul Dravid, firebrand batting sensation Virender Sehwag and VVS Laxman will be singing praises of the young guns of Indian Cricket - Irfan Pathan, L Balaji and Akash Chopra on ESPN's Samsung Cricket Show on Friday, 9 April at 9.30 pm.

The show also features Pakistan’s charming cricketer Shahid Afridi as he relaxes at his home in Karachi after his successful comeback to one-day cricket. Afridi like so many other Pakistan cricketers has a unique distinction of coming good every time he plays against India!

The show will be hosted by none other than the charismatic Wasim Akram and no-non-sense Ravi Shastri in their own inimitable styles. Shastri and Akram will also discuss the outcome of the second test and will look ahead to the final test to be played at Rawalpindi. The seasoned campaigners will analyse the series and the cricketers from both sides – not to mention the spicy and memorable anecdotes.

Caught in ‘Captain’s Corner’ just before he left India for Pakistan after recuperating from his back injury, Sourav Ganguly talks about Yuvraj Singh’s brilliant show in the second test and the delicious food in Pakistan besides what it takes to be a good leader in a team game. Later in the show, three stalwarts of Indian cricket, Rahul Dravid, Virender Sehwag and VVS Laxman, talk about promising Young Turks of Indian Cricket -- Irfan Pathan, L. Balaji and Akash Chopra.

The Samsung Cricket Show will also present a heart-warming story about a group of under privileged children who are leaving for Pakistan to play cricket with their counterparts. They have many tales to tell of the tips they received from former test cricketers and also of Ravi Shastri’s special visit to them.
