List of commentators for Major League Cricket 2023
Attracting viewers, especially on TV and digital mediums is one of the major agendas whenever a T20 league is setup. This sets a good platform for the competition from a financial point of view. Thus, the tournament can go on and exist on its own, just like IPL has done.
A key factor in this is to ensure that the broadcast quality is good for the viewers. They would need an immersive experience and they would also like value added by those calling the game. This goes a long way in helping the viewers enjoy the proceedings. Since cricket is nascent in the United States of America, helping a few fans understand the game would also be vital. Commentators will play a huge role and here are those who will call the game in MLC 2023:
- Sunil Gavaskar
- Graeme Smith
- Danny Morrison
- Mpumelelo Mbangwa
- Natalie Germanos
- Alan Wilkins
- Nikhil Uttamchandani
What a stellar team 🤩
Our all-star commentators will bring a rich range of international cricket experience to give color to broadcasts showcasing this historic season of #MajorLeagueCricket! 🇺🇸 🏏 🏟️Advertisement

An important tournament for the future of the game
The USA is one of the biggest markets on the globe for any product, not just sports. Cricket is still a growing game with many markets still left untouched. If the sport finds popularity in the USA, its reach would become bigger.
For that, MLC has to be a success. For any new league, the first edition is important. Hence, the organizers will hope for quality cricket content over the next few weeks.
