With just three months to go until the highly anticipated return of the KFC Big Bash League, Network Ten is delighted to announce that British cricket legends Michael Vaughan OBE and Graeme Swann will join the commentary team for the 2017-18 KFC Big Bash League, starting 19th December.
Vaughan assured his place in cricket history with England’s historic Ashes victory in 2005 and has gone on to become one of the sport’s most respected commentators. Swann, once ranked the best spin bowler in the world, played an integral part in slaying the Aussies in the 2010-11 Ashes series. With the Ashes on our doorstep once again, the duo will no doubt prove popular with Aussie fans despite their English heritage.
Australian cricket legend Andrew Symonds, current Australian cricket team coach Darren Lehmann, former New Zealand cricket captain Brendon McCullum and crowd favourite Kevin Pietersen will also return to the commentary box, joining regular expert commentators Adam Gilchrist AM, Ricky Ponting AO, Mark Waugh AM, Damien Fleming, Mel Jones, Lisa Sthalekar, Roz Kelly, Mark Howard and Andy Maher to complete an all-star line-up of commentators throughout the season.
Network Ten executive, Big Bash, David Barham, said: “The addition of Vaughan and Swann to Network Ten’s commentary team ensures that our coverage of the KFC Big Bash League will take on a new dimension this summer.
“Network Ten has the most exciting and contemporary cricket commentary team and in an Ashes year, the Brits will provide insight and humour for cricket fans around the country.
“The KFC Big Bash League has gone from strength to strength on Network Ten over the past four years and we look forward to another successful season,” he said.
Network Ten will broadcast 43 KFC Big Bash League matches in 48 days over the coming summer, including six double-headers. With all matches of the extended season broadcast in prime time, live, free and exclusive on TEN or ONE, fans will not miss a minute of the action.
