Sourav Ganguly, former Indian captain and current President of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), will make a return to the commentary box after two years for the forthcoming International Cricket Council (ICC) Champions Trophy 2017 – scheduled in England in June.
Ganguly was a part of the commentary panel during the ICC World Cup 2015, which was jointly held in New Zealand and Australia.
“Yes, I will be doing commentary during the Champions Trophy. Last time I did commentary was during the ICC World Cup in Australia in 2015,” Ganguly was quoted as saying by xtratime.in.
The UK-based production company Sunset and Vine, which also holds rights for the ICC events, has signed the former left-handed batsman to do commentary at the global event in England.
The Kolkata-born Ganguly was also a part of the commentary panel in 2013, when India -under the tutelage of Mahendra Singh Dhoni – lifted the coveted Champions Trophy title in a rain-curtailed game against England in Birmingham.
Ganguly played 311 ODIs, 113 Tests for India, in which he amassed a total of 18,575 runs with 38 centuries and 107 half-centuries.
After making his debut in 1992, Ganguly bagged 132 wickets across all formats.
