SPORTS Entertainment Network (SEN) is excited to unveil its broadcast line-up for the upcoming World Test Championship (WTC) Final and Ashes series, led by acclaimed broadcaster Adam Collins.
Collins, who has called for SEN Cricket in six countries since 2018, will lead up the commentary team throughout all six Tests in England from June 7. His deep knowledge and passion for the game has earned him a dedicated following among cricket enthusiasts around the world and SEN listeners.
Joining Collins for the WTC Final will be iconic Indian figures Ravi Shastri and Harsha Bhogle, who were both instrumental to SEN’s widely commended Border-Gavaskar Trophy coverage earlier this year.
Two of the most treasured and authoritative voices in Indian cricket over many decades, Shastri and Bhogle will provide valuable insight as Rohit Sharma’s side aims to capture the mace, recognising the best Test team in the world, having fallen short in the decider against New Zealand in 2021.
Heading to Birmingham for the start of the Ashes, former Australian quick and SEN favourite Damien Fleming will be in the thick of things as SEN’s headline expert for the series, combining his warmth, humour and a first-hand knowledge of how to get the job done against England.
Also returning to SEN will be Daniel Norcross, the best radio ball-by-baller in England, and legendary commentator and former New Zealand skipper Jeremy Coney. In tandem – as they will be on a daily basis - they are one of cricket’s favourite double-acts.
Bolstering the team across all six tests are SEN Cricket stalwarts Peter Lalor from The Australian and Cricbuzz's Bharat Sundaresan. Lalor's two decades covering the Australian team, coupled with Sundaresan's far-reaching analysis, ensures listeners will receive comprehensive coverage from all angles.
Commentator Nikesh Rughani and cricket.com.au journalist Louis Cameron – who were also part of the acclaimed India vs Australia coverage - and statisticians Andrew Samson and Phil Long will round out the team across the series, with more announcements to come.
Collins is excited for what will be a landmark English summer.
“Going back to the days of Bradman, there’s always been something very special about listening to Australia playing Ashes Tests through the night from England on the radio,” Collins said.
“That Pat Cummins’ side has the chance to win a series there for the first time since 2001, coming straight after their first tilt at a World Test Championship Final, makes this all the more exciting.
“When throwing into the mix the way England has been playing Test cricket under Brendon McCullum and Ben Stokes over the last year, this match-up is nothing short of compelling.
“We’re thrilled with the team that has been assembled for six Tests in seven weeks and can’t wait to hit the ground running at the WTC Final. We’re looking forward to your company deep into the night on each playing day as we make our way across the country.”
Listeners can enjoy every ball of the World Test Championship Final and the Ashes live across SEN’s and SENZ’s radio networks and digital platforms, including the SEN App.
