Adam Gilchrist Joins Ten Sport

Cricket Legend Adam Gilchrist has become the second name to be added to the Big Bash commentary team. 

Adam will join former team mate Ricky Ponting in the commentary box for the KFC T20 Big Bash League, which will be broadcast live on TEN from December 2013.

TEN CEO Hamish McLennan, said: “Adam is one of the greatest cricketers Australia has ever produced and we are very excited that he has agreed to join the team at TEN.

“The combination of Adam and Ricky – plus other high-profile commentators we will announce soon – is great news for cricket fans and will ensure the KFC T20 Big Bash League will be a major television event for all Australians.”

Gilchrist said: “The success of the Big Bash League last season shows T20 cricket has a prominent place not only in the cricket calendar but also in the minds of cricket followers of all ages. I’ve no doubt Network TEN will continue to not only grow the game, but deliver fantastic perspective and entertainment for our viewers.”

TEN’s Head of Sport, David Barham, added: “I have enjoyed watching Adam’s remarkable career in cricket. We are thrilled to have Adam join our KFC T20 Big Bash League commentary team.
