Sachin Tendulkar to make commentary debut at 2019 Cricket World Cup opener
Indian cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar will be making his on-air expert debut with the World Cup beginning on Thursday in England and Wales.
Tendulkar will grace the commentary box during the tournament opener between England and South Africa to be played at The Oval, London.
The Master Blaster will join the Philips Hue Cricket Live pre-show in Hindi and English at 1.30 pm with his very own segment ‘Sachin Opens Again’ on the Star Sports network.
He will be joined by an already illustrious panel of experts, some of whom have had the pleasure of playing alongside and with him.
Apart from holding the record for most runs both test and one-day cricket, the ace cricketer holds a number of ICC Cricket World Cup records.
Tendulkar, who retired from all forms of cricket in 2013, has scored 2,278 runs in the six editions of the World Cup he played. He also holds the record for scoring the highest number of runs in a single edition of the World Cup – 673 in 11 matches in 2003.
India, one of the favourites to win the tournament, will face South Africa in their first World Cup match on June 5.
