Kayo Sports will include an alternative Hindi commentary option for all India matches plus the semi-finals and final, and Kayo Minis will be available for every match of the tournament for the ICC Men’s World Cup here. Besides English, Hindi is the only other language in which alternate commentary will be available.
This announcement was made by Australian legend and Fox Cricket commentator Adam Gilchrist at an event organised by Kayo Sports media at the SCG to preview the upcoming ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup. Gilly was joined there by Test and ODI captain Pat Cummins, ODI batsman Glenn Maxwell and test batsman Usman Khawaja.
Speaking with The Australia Today’s Editor Pallavi Jain, Glenn Maxwell who is married to Indian origin Vini Raman, said that India feels like second home to him.
Test and ODI Captain Pat Cummins also mentioned that he always enjoys playing in India
Sharing his memories of India, Australian legend Adam Gilchrist said that touring India was more than a cricket tour, it was a life experience.
It was also announced at this event that Usman Khawaja will join Fox Cricket’s world-class line-up for a series of analysis shows throughout the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup and will feature across the upcoming summer of cricket, before joining the commentary team full-time upon his retirement.
He follows in the footsteps of fellow opening batsman and good friend, David Warner, as the most recent addition to the Fox Cricket team.
He said “I’ve always enjoyed Fox Cricket’s coverage. Fox Sports was the first thing I’d put on in the morning as a kid, so the affiliation with the company was a bit more sentimental for me.
“On top of that, working alongside a world-class commentary team and my mate Dave Warner is something that really excites me and I can’t wait”.
The cricketer also recalled the recent Ashes series at the event
Fox Cricket’s Sydney-based hosting line-up for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup will also include Brendon Julian, Mark Waugh, Kerry O’Keeffe and Brad Haddin, with live crosses to Michael Vaughan, Ravi Shastri, Wasim Akram, Harsha Bhogle and Ian Smith in India.

Every match of the women’s international series’ and the Weber WBBL will be live on Fox Sports, available on Foxtel and streaming on Kayo Sports.
