In a move that has garnered significant attention, Star Sports, the official broadcaster of the tournament, has revealed its stellar lineup of commentators for the marquee encounter. While eight esteemed voices will grace the commentary box, one omission, that of former Indian opener Aakash Chopra, has raised eyebrows among fans.
The commentators for the India vs. Pakistan match on Star Sports include renowned figures such as Ravi Shastri, Gautam Gambhir, Wasim Akram, Matthew Hayden, Waqar Younis, Dominic Cork, Irfan Pathan, and Sanjay Manjrekar.
For the broader Asia Cup 2023 coverage, a total of 13 commentators from five different countries have been enlisted. India will be represented by Gautam Gambhir, Ravi Shastri, Sanjay Manjrekar, Irfan Pathan, and Deep Dasgupta. Pakistan’s contingent will feature Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Bazid Khan, and Ramiz Raja. Bangladesh will be represented by Athar Ali Khan and Shamim Ashraf, while co-hosts Sri Lanka will see Russell Arnold and Roshan Abeysinghe in the commentary box.
The omission of Aakash Chopra, despite his substantial presence on social media platforms, has sparked discussions and intrigue within the cricketing community. Nevertheless, the stellar lineup promises to provide cricket enthusiasts with insightful and engaging commentary during the much-anticipated clash and throughout the Asia Cup 2023.
