In the run-up to the biggest cricketing show in the world, the ICC Cricket World Cup, all sports channels are putting their best foot forward to have a piece of the pie. But, for the one-year-old, India’s first digital sports news and journalism channel—Power Sportz, this edition is also its maiden cricket World Cup. The channel is in no mood to let go of this huge opportunity to cover the cricketing bonanza the best possible way.
No wonder the editor-in-chief of Power Sportz, Kanthi D Suresh, is the quintessential busy bee these days, trying to connect all the dots as the mega event draws near. Power Sportz is leaving no stone unturned to have the best people onboard to cover the 2019 cricket World Cup.
Keeping in line with the channel’s ethos, Power Sportz is fast spreading its tentacles into the international arena. With the recent launch of its first overseas studio in Australia, PS has announced itself as a global player.
They have already roped in former Aussie greats like Andy Bichel, who was part of the 2003 World Cup winning squad. In fact, the tear-away Oz quick Andy Bichel had already visited Power Sportz studio along with other two Australian panelists—Gary Cosier and Tony Dell. The triumvirate was seen enjoying themselves in the recently held anniversary celebrations of Power Sportz. They’d also attended a press conference along with Kanthi, divulging details of the channel’s global plans and world Cup coverage. Keppler Wessels, the former South African captain also seems to have been roped in by PS
Big names in West Indies cricket heading to PS Gurugram studio
As the World Cup unfurls, Power Sportz is planning to bring to its million viewers the live updates from ground zero, headed by the best in the business, match analysis, previews and post-match discussions.
Last heard through grapevine, a few former West Indies players are also in discussion with Power Sportz. Iconic names like Clive Lloyd, Viv Richards, and Desmond Haynes are doing the rounds of a possible tie-up.
To have players of such stature, the PS World Cup coverage is going to be no less than a spectacle. However, it is yet to be known who Power Sportzor Kanthi D. Suresh has finalized to cover the 2019 ICC World Cup in England and Wales.
Apart, from the already signed up Australians, a few more are on the anvil.
So, is it Clive Lloyd who drove West Indies to their first and second World Cup glories, is it Vivian Richards, the fiery Caribbean batsman, or is it Desmond Haynes, who would fly down in the next few days to the Gurugram studio? People are waiting with bated breath, to watch some of the former cricketing greats talk about the game and discuss the action as it happens on the biggest war field among the cricketing nations of the world.
Who is the Indian international player part of this coverage. Rumours doing the rounds that Sadanand Vishwanath is making a come back to cricket commentary!!
Guess, Kanthi D Suresh is the best person to announce the real panel, if she is available to give us a quick byte!
