Cricbuzz has announced the launch of Cricbuzz Live, an analysis show for the upcoming IPL season with popular Cricket experts and anchors. Starting off with a curtain raiser on April 6, Cricbuzz users will enjoy over 150 live shows of pre-match, mid-innings and post-match analysis.
Cricbuzz CEO Pankaj Chhaparwal said, “Delighted to see our focus on video content materializing into what promises to be a one of a kind show that fans would love to come back and watch every day. The anchors and the experts on the show are wonderful storytellers and their experience coupled with the platform that Cricbuzz provides will make for a gratifying experience for millions of our users.”
Leading Cricbuzz’s line-up of cricket experts is former India fast bowler Zaheer Khan.
“IPL has been an integral part of my life for the last ten years, and being on the other side talking about cricket and the players I’ve been closely associated with is going to be exciting. Looking forward to this association with Cricbuzz and excited with the plan to make the show informative and entertaining,” Khan said.
Famous for his magic with words and storytelling skills, Harsha Bhogle will continue to be a part of Cricbuzz’s expert panel. Bhogle has been the face of Cricbuzz’s video offerings for the last 18 months and is excited to bring a different, freewheeling perspective to match analysis.
“Cricbuzz has been on a roll for the last couple of years with staggering video views and the time has come to offer fans more. The greatest festival of the game, the IPL, is the right time to release Cricbuzz Live; simple conversations on cricket from some very interesting people,” Bhogle said.
To round off the team of experts, Cricbuzz has roped in former New Zealand cricketer and commentator Simon Doull, former England captain Michael Vaughan, and former KKR Team Director, Joy Bhattacharjya.
Digital medium is informal, fun and engaging and with 'the face of IPL anchoring' for the last decade, Gaurav Kapur on board for Cricbuzz LIVE, viewers are in for some great entertainment. Kapur said, “Cricbuzz is my go to destination for all things cricket, so when they asked me to anchor their IPL shows I was naturally excited. We are confident that the viewers will enjoy the easy and breezy mix of a top analysis show with a great panel, with a healthy dose of fun and humour.”
Cricbuzz has signed actor, comedian and radio jockey Danish Sait and another known face in the world of cricket shows, Gautam Bhimani to complete the trio of hosts for the show.
