ESPN-Star Sports to launch live interactive TV game show

ESPN -Star Sports will launch its first live and interactive television game show, even as Sony’s Max channel will telecast live the cricket ICC Champions Trophy.

Super Selector, which set world records in online participation, will be aired in its new format from September 19. The weekly show will be hosted by Darain Shahidi and Poonam Sharma.

It will also have celebrity hosts like Cyrus Broacha, Geoffrey Boycott, Sunil Gavaskar, Navyjot Siddhu and Naseeruddin Shah. An interactive element has been added to the show where randomly selected participants will be telephoned live and quizzed about their knowledge of cricket. The correct answers will win prizes such as a car and a motorbike. The winner of the monthly Super Selector gets an opportunity to share the commentary with other cricket legends.

According to sources the entry mechanism has been extended as participants now have an option to enter by sending a competition post card or fax, besides the online participation. The concept of mini Super Selector will enable participants to select the best batsman, bowler and wicket-keeper for the month.
