The 11th season of Australia’s Big Bash League will start on December 5 with a clash between defending champions Sydney Sixers and Glenn Maxwell’s Melbourne Stars.
The Big Bash League and The Ashes series will entertain the Australian cricket universe a lot this summer. Seven Cricket has assembled one of the best commentary panels of all time for the cricket coverage this summer.
Mel McLaughlin, Alister Nicholson, James Brayshaw and Erin Holland will support the commentators. Mel will work as a host, whereas Alister and James are professional commentators. Erin will work as a sideline reporter. Here are all the details you need to know about the other commentators.
Former Australian skipper Ricky Ponting is one of the biggest names present in the commentary panel. He is a former multi-time World Cup winning captain. Since retirement, he has coached successful IPL franchises like Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals.
Greg Blewett is a former Australian player who achieved a lot of success in the batting department. He scored more than 17,000 runs in the first-class arena. Blewett played international matches for his country from 1995 to 2000.
Former Australian fast bowler Damien Fleming will make the Big Bash League matches more entertaining with his ‘bowlology’ theories. Fleming scalped more than 200 wickets for the Australian cricket team during his time as an active player.
Brendon McCullum is a former New Zealand cricket team captain. He was the first Kiwi skipper to take the nation to the World Cup final. McCullum has now retired and works as a commentator as well as a coach.
Former Australian women’s cricketer Lisa Sthalekar played international cricket from 2001 to 2013. Since retirement, Lisa has made a name for herself with her commentary skills.
Former Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunder player Trent Copeland will provide his expert analysis on Channel Seven during the 2022 BBL. Copeland played three Tests for Australia in 2011.
Another ex-Sydney Thunder squad member to appear on this list is Callum Ferguson. The former Australian batter played one Tests and 30 ODIs. He played for Sydney Thunder in the previous BBL season.
Former Australian all-rounder Brad Hodge was very successful in the shortest format of the game. He has experience of coaching the IPL teams, but in the BBL, he will work as a commentator.
