The Pakistan Cricket Board on Saturday unveiled the commentators for the upcoming season seven of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), scheduled to kick off at Karachi’s National Stadium from January 27.

In a statement, the PCB confirmed that former England cricketer Nick Knight and Mike Haysman, the former first-class cricketer and now one of the most credible voices in world cricket, will mark their PSL commentary debuts. 

This will be Haysman’s third visit to Pakistan in a year, after his stints in South Africa’s tour of Pakistan and the National T20 last year.

Former England captain David Gower returns for his second consecutive stint after the legendary commentator made his appearance in the Karachi-leg of the 2021 edition. Former New Zealand and Zimbabwe pacers Danny Morrison (Lahore matches only) and Pommie Mbangwa (Karachi matches only) also join the PSL commentary roster once again, the statement said.

The Pakistan contingent of the commentators includes former Pakistan cricketers Bazid Khan, Marina Iqbal, Sana Mir, Urooj Mumtaz, and Waqar Younis, along with Tariq Saeed, the pioneer of Urdu commentary.

The action will be called in both English and Urdu languages to bring both international and local audiences closer to it. Thirty high-definition cameras along with buggy and drone cameras will embellish the viewing experience of fans of the league in Pakistan and around the world.

The spider cam will once again bring an up and close experience with in-match chats between the players and commentators.

Presenter Erin Holland also marks a return to the league. Sikander Bakht and Zainab Abbas will host the pre- and post-match shows.
