Sky Cricket Commentators: The SportsRush present before you a list of commentators working at Sky Sports for the ongoing Test series.
During the third day of the first Test of the ongoing India’s tour of England in Nottingham, Indian lower-order has put together a rare impressive batting performance to power the team to 278 in 84.5 overs.
Led by all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja’s 16th Test half-century, India’s No. 9, 10 and 11 joined hands to score a combined total of 48 runs. As a result, the visitors have gained a significant 95-run first-innings lead.
India’s lower order has given the team a wonderful chance in this game. It has been a major issue in recent years and hopefully, this is the beginning of more little contributions

For the hosts, fast bowler Ollie Robinson was the pick of their bowlers with bowling figures of 26.5-6-85-5. Apart from Robinson’s maiden five-wicket haul in only second Test, England were assisted to a large extent by veteran pacer James Anderson’s figures of 23-8-54-4.

In what is the 11th five-match Test series between England and India, it is being televised by Sky Sports Cricket and Sony Sports Network in England and India respectively.
To cater to a large number of viewers in different languages, Sony Sports Network have arranged commentary panels in as many as four languages namely English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
Sky Sports Cricket, on the other hand, have had to allocate their resources judiciously to manage both an international Test series and The Hundred 2021. Resultantly, the Test series has to do without tried and tested cricketers-turned-commentators in Rob Key and Ebony Rainford-Brent.
Sky’s commentary panel for the England vs India series comprises of former England captains Michael Atheron and Andrew Strauss (guest appearance), former West Indies fast bowler Michael Holding, former England batsman Ian Ward and veteran India wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik (guest appearance).
