As per the reports in TOI, Bollywood’s Shahenshah Amitabh Bachchan is all set to make his commentary debut at the India- Pakistan World Cup clash, that takes place at Adelaide on February 15th.
Big B will lend his deep baritone for cricket commentary as he joins Kapil Dev, Shoaib Akhtar, Harsha Bhogle and other commentators on February 15. A campaign, announcing his debut, was launched during the tri-series final between Australia and England on January 1st. The promos feature Kapil and Shoaib, who sound like the superstar after they pop a lozenge called Shamitabh — thus combining their cricketing expertise with Big B’s inimitable voice. Says Bachchan, “This country’s emotions are ruled by two things — cricket and cinema. For me, it’s an exciting time on both fronts. My movie is releasing on February 6 and then, I have the privilege of making my commentary debut.” The India-Pakistan match of the ICC Cricket World Cup airs on the Star Sports network.
