The last man to win the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup, Michael Clarke, will be sharing his ICC television commentary debut with some of the game’s most respected broadcasters including Nasser Hussain, Ian Bishop, Sourav Ganguly, Melanie Jones, Kumar Sangakkara and Michael Atherton. Alison Mitchell, Brendon McCullum, Graeme Smith and Wasim Akram.

All over England and Wales there is anticipation of the upcoming cricket summer. This edition of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup promises to be the most entertaining so far, and I can not wait to be part of this event broadcast and witness the story first-hand.
Still the marquee in our sport, I have so many wonderful memories of World Cup cricket. 2015 was the culmination of a lot of hard work and I am pleased to be in another position this time – hopefully we have a lot of drama.
This will be a very special cricket summer in England and Wales and possibly the most competitive cricket world cup ever for ICC men. England hosts a great team, but there are several realistic rivals and we’re sure we’ll see some fantastic cricket games along the way.
The anticipation of this year’s ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup is huge among players and fans, and the round-robin format, in which each nation competes against each other and is supplemented with the strength of all ten teams, will undoubtedly become the most competitive and the most competitive World Cup ever, plus the chance of winning the World Cup for the first time, and it’s as thrilling as the opportunity for many.
The upcoming Cricket World Cup has the same format as in 1992. It is the best format if the teams have more chances and I assume that all teams have equal chances to qualify for the semi-finals. Every four years there is a World Cup. The players wait and do their best to deliver an unforgettable performance. I hope that with the best players in the world to be seen here, we will face tough competition with top-of-the-line crime thrillers, great skills and unequaled moments.
I am looking forward to the next weeks with great anticipation and expectation. It’s an honor to be part of the comment team that brings the stories, updates and analysis of the Cricket World Cup to wherever you are. This edition promises to be even more exciting and innovative than ever before, and it’s a great privilege to be part of the team that brings you.
