Cricket programing on Ten Sports – Straight Drive

Ten Sports takes analytical programming to the next level this summer, with two legends of the game discussing and reviewing the most eagerly anticipated one-day series in recent times. Anil Kumble and Geoffrey Boycott join hands during the 4 ODIs between the West Indies and India, promising Cricket enthusiasts all over the world a real treat starting the 26th of June (see schedule below for details).

Known as one of the toughest yet fairest competitors the game has ever seen, former Indian Test captain Kumble has kept himself in the spotlight even after his retirement from international Cricket, leading the unfancied Bangalore Royal Challengers to the IPL Final this season. Sporting aficionadi in the subcontinent have fond memories of the leggie from Bangalore bowling with a broken jaw and still managing to dismiss the best batsman in the world, Brian Lara, during the famous Test series in the Caribbean in 2002. And now, the 38-year-old returns in a new avatar, analyzing the key aspects of every game from the expert’s chair, as he talks about a sport and region he knows better than most.

Sitting alongside him in the studio will be a man who, as the old cliché goes, needs no introduction. Geoffrey Boycott, the hard-as-nails and unbreachable-as-a-fortress opener from Yorkshire, is one of the most popular commentators around, if not THE most popular. One of the best Cricket analysts ever and one blessed with acerbic wit and a remarkable turn of phrase, the 68-year-old played a pivotal role in England’s epic 1-0 Test series win in the West Indies in 1967, averaging almost 70. And this time around, the man with the endearing Yorkshire accent is all set to regale and enlighten everyone once again with his unique take on Cricket in the region.

The 4-ODI series, to be played in Jamaica and St Lucia, holds great significance for both the West Indies and India. Eager to try and decide on a settled combination in the lead up to the all-important 2011 World Cup, the hosts will want to test their young spinners against the country that plays that type of bowling the best. With tweakers likely to hold the key in the subcontinent in two years’ time, Chris Gayle and the Windies think-tank will want to make the most of this opportunity.

India, meanwhile, will see this as a golden chance to overtake Australia in the official ICC ODI ratings and even push table-toppers South Africa. MS Dhoni’s side hasn’t played a one-day series since its victorious bilateral engagement in New Zealand earlier in March. But they’ve been among the strongest 50-over sides over the past season, beating the Sri Lankan lions in their own den before grounding the Kiwis.

So, with so much at stake for the two participating teams and with two of the most loved and respected names in the business analyzing it, the WI-Ind series promises to be sizzling hot this summer, as TEN Sports showcases it on Straight Drive.

Kumble joins Ten Sports' commentary team for India-WI series

MUMBAI: Ten Sports, which airs the four match ODI series between India and West Indies from 26 June, has announced that Anil Kumble and Geoffrey Boycott will join hands for commentary and expert analysis on the channel's wrap around show Straight Drive.

Kumble earlier was part of Star Cricket's commentary team for the Twenty20 World Cup.

Kumble boosted his brand equity by leading the unfancied Bangalore Royal Challengers to the Indian Premier League (IPL) final.

For India, a good performance means that they could overtake Australia in the ICC ODI rankings.
