IPL 2020: Manjrekar not included in commentators list
BCCI finalise list of seven commentators for the IPL
Former India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar has been omitted from the list of commentators finalised by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCC) for the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Sanjay Manjrekar, former cricketer-turned-commentator had been part of the commentary panel since the inaugural IPL season in 2008.
The seven commentators who have been picked for the world-feed broadcast are Sunil Gavaskar, L Sivaramakrishnan, Murali Kartik, Deep Dasgupta, Rohan Gavaskar, Harsha Bhogle and Anjum Chopra.
Dasgupta and Kartik have been placed in the panel for Abu Dhabi matches while the rest have been placed in the panels for Dubai and Sharjah games. Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Dubai are the three venues for this year's IPL.
Dubai and Abu Dhabi will host 21 games each with Sharjah getting 14 games of the league stage. The venue for the playoff has not been finalised yet.
The commentators will be divided into three panels and will be placed in two bubbles - one in Dubai and one in Abu Dhabi. The commentators will leave for UAE on September 10.
