“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

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.

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.
