Asia Cup 2023 will begin on August 30th. ODI World Cup 2023 will happen a few months later and hence, the upcoming Asia Cup will act as a solid preparation event for the teams involved. Also, from a viewership perspective, with both India and Pakistan involved, we can expect viewership to be high for the event. It will be important that there will be a good set of commentators who will call the game. On that note, here, we take a look at the list of commentators for Asia Cup 2023.
List of commentators for Asia Cup 2023
The Asia Cup will always involve commentators from all Asian nations. Of course, there would be more from India and Pakistan as the majority of the viewers would come from here. In this context, the broadcasters have made a good choice in picking an experienced group of commentators. Here is a look:
- Ramiz Raja
- Ravi Shastri
- Wasim Akram
- Irfan Pathan
- Gautam Gambhir
- Scott Styris
- Waqar Younis
- Bazid Khan
- Sanjay Manjrekar
- Deep Dasgupta
- Russel Arnold
- Athar Ali Khan
A vital test for Team India
Meanwhile, it will be Team India that will be the most under pressure for this event. Firstly, the management will be sweating over the fitness of the likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul. These three players form a core group for the men in blue and their availability is a must for the team in the ODI World Cup. Therefore, it will be interesting to see if these players would take part in the Asia Cup.
On the other hand, India is currently under pressure, having under-performed against West Indies, so far. The fans are slowly losing hope and that is a dangerous sign ahead of the WC. To arrest this and to also build some confidence, the Indian Team has to be in top form in the competition.
