The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) has announced the star-studded commentary panel for the much-anticipated 50-over Asia Cup 2023, which is scheduled to take place in Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Aamer Sohail, and Bazid Khan are some of the most legendary players in the game of cricket, and they will all be representing Pakistan in the commentary box alongside Matthew Hayden, who hails from Australia.
In the meanwhile, India will be represented by Ravi Shastri, Gautam Gambhir, Harbhajan Singh, Irfan Pathan, Sanjay Bangar, Piyush Chawla, Sanjay Manjrekar, Deep Dasgupta, Mohammad Kaif, Aditya Tare, and Rajat Bhatia.
During the 13 matches that make up the 50-over Asia Cup, former cricketers Marvan Atapattu, Dominic Cork, and Andy Flower will serve as commentators for the tournament.
Ramiz Raja, a well-known former cricketer who is now a commentator, as well as Harsha Bhogle, an Indian cricket analyst, would not be a member of the commentary panel during the event. This came as a big surprise to the fans.
