LAHORE, Jan 22 (APP): The Pakistan Cricket Board on Saturday unveiled the commentators for the upcoming edition, which will commence at Karachi’s National Stadium from 27 January.
Former England cricketer Nick Knight and Mike Haysman, the former first-class cricketer and
now one of the most credible voices in world cricket, will mark their HBL PSL commentary debuts.
This will be Haysman’s third visit to Pakistan in a year, after his stints in South Africa’s tour of
Pakistan and the National T20 last year.
Former England captain David Gower returns for his second consecutive stint after the legendary
commentator made his appearance in the Karachi-leg of the 2021 edition. Former New Zealand
and Zimbabwe pacers Danny Morrison (Lahore matches only) and Pommie Mbangwa (Karachi
matches only) also join the HBL PSL commentary roaster once again.
The Pakistan contingent of the commentators includes former Pakistan cricketers Bazid Khan,
Marina Iqbal, Sana Mir, Urooj Mumtaz and Waqar Younis, along with Urdu commentator Tariq Saeed.
The action will be called in both English and Urdu languages to bring both international and local
audiences closer to action. Thirty High-Definition cameras along with buggy and drone cameras
will embellish the viewing experience of the fans of the league in Pakistan and around the world.
The Spider Cam will once again bring up and close experience with in-match chats between the
players and commentators.
Presenter Erin Holland also marks a return to the league. Sikander Bakht and Zainab Abbas will
host the pre- and post-match shows.
