To make sure that viewers do not miss out on all the adrenalin packed action, Sony Max and Sony Six, the official broadcasters of Pepsi IPL 2013, have roped in two fresh faces to host their flagship show ‘extraaa innings T20’, the cricket wrap around show that has transformed the way audiences consume cricket.
This year’s extraaa innings T20 will be co-hosted by actor Karishma Kotak and Femina Miss India International 2012, Rochelle Maria Rao. They will take the audience through the hits and misses of the game without missing any of the facts, analyses and trivia associated with the forthcoming Pepsi IPL 2013 extravaganza.
Neeraj Vyas, Business Head, Max, said, “extraaa innings T20 has always been a thrilling entity that brings in-depth cricket analysis to fans in the most entertaining way. This year we have roped in two vibrant and striking personalities, Karishma and Rochelle, to provide freshness to the show along with our seasoned anchors Gaurav Kapur and Samir Kochhar. They are not only accomplished presenters but also passionate cricket buffs and will take us through the high octane action of the Pepsi IPL 2013.”
A delighted Rochelle Maria Rao said, “I have been a big fan of the league since its inception. Being a part of this huge tournament has always been my dream. I used to watch Gaurav Kapur and Samir Kochhar host extraaa innings T20 live from the ground. Now, I’m really excited to co-host the show with this brilliant duo. The countdown to Pepsi IPL and extraaa innings T20 has begun and I am really looking forward to being a part of this this electrifying atmosphere”.
Karishma Kotak added, “Cricket is very close to every Indian’s heart including mine. I got a taste of the game when I hosted the auctions on Max recently and realised how exhilarating the tournament is going to be. I am definitely looking forward to hosting EI T20 and the opportunity to interact with so many cricketing stalwarts and experts on the show.”
Max will present in-depth analyses of the game from the extraaa innings T20 studio with an expert panel which includes cricket stalwarts like Navjot Singh Sidhu with his unique ‘Siddhuisms’, Sunil Gavaskar, Ajay Jadega, Harsha Bhogle, Rameez Raja, Isa Guha and, for the very first time on EI, the inimitable Kapil Dev.
The extraaa innings T20 studio this year will be larger-than-life and the design will strive to recreate the theatrical atmosphere that one associates with a cricket stadium.
Viewers can also look forward to some snazzy moves of professional cheerleaders from the NFL New York Giants team. EI T20 will also feature entertainment acts and performances throughout the duration of the tournament.
