5 commentators and their associations with IPL teams in the past
Over the years, Indian Premier League has grown on to become one of the most coveted cricketing tournaments in the world. The eleven editions of the league have seen players from across the globe take part in it in various capacities.
While it's the ever-increasing fervour for the game that keeps us hooked to our TV sets day in and day out, the riveting commentary in the background makes the whole experience of watching the game all the more special. Thanks to our favourite commentators, and their insightful opinions that are aired throughout the game, the viewing experience is never short of its zest and keeps us engrossed all along.
In addition to the numerous seasoned commentators, many cricketers, who were a part of IPL in the past, have now got on the mic to express their views on the game. Here are five such commentators from the current lot who were associated with different IPL teams over the past decade.
#5 Michael Clarke
The former Australian skipper, Michael Clarke, represented Pune Warriors India in the fifth edition of the tournament. Playing under Sourav Ganguly's captaincy, the New South Welshman had six outings for the team in which he managed to score 98 runs at a bleak average of 16.33.
The edition also saw Clarke also picking up two wickets with his left arm spinners. Despite being bought by the same franchise in 2013 as well, the right-handed batsman had to sit out owing to his back injury.
After hanging up his boots as a player, Pup, as he's fondly called, turned into a full-time commentator and joined the commentary panel of IPL in 2017.
