The ICC World Cup 2023 commentary panel has been revealed, featuring a comprehensive lineup of commentators and broadcasters set to provide in-depth coverage and analysis for the eagerly anticipated event in India.
Scheduled to take place exclusively in India from October 5 to November 19, the 50-over tournament will be preceded by two warm-up matches for each participating team.
Notably absent from the ICC ODI World Cup commentary lineup is Wasim Akram, despite his presence in the Asia Cup panel. Instead, Pakistan will be represented by his former pace partner, Waqar Younis, and teammate Ramiz Raja.
The esteemed commentary panel also boasts cricketing luminaries such as three-time World Cup champion Ricky Ponting and Eoin Morgan, who guided England to victory in 2019. India will be represented by cricket stalwarts Sunil Gavaskar, the iconic voice of Ravi Shastri, Harsha Bhogle, and Dinesh Karthik.
ICC’s comprehensive match coverage includes pre-match, mid-innings, and post-match programs, providing fans with unparalleled insights and analysis from cricketing legends.
