Cricket buffs have something more – and different -- to cheer about. Ten Sports has taken the initiative to provide an unprecedented level of access into the lives and careers of their favourite cricket stars in their new programme, ‘The Chevrolet Cricket Show’. Starting today, the Chevrolet Cricket Show will be broadcast every Friday at 9.30 pm, and will be hosted by Cyrus Broacha.
Filmed in front of a live audience in Dubai every month, the Chevrolet Cricket Show explores the evolution of the game by lending a unique perspective on the sport directly from the players themselves. Besides, cricket aficionados will also get to know about the personal lives of their cricket stars as well as the time they spent in cricket.
The show is divided into four half-hour sessions wherein each cricketer is expected to face googlies from Cyrus with each half-hour dedicated to a certain facet of the cricketer’s life. The show would also give a fair chance to the live audience to throw direct questions at their heroes.
Said Peter Hutton, Vice-President, Programming, Ten Sports, “The interactive quotient of the show will help in connecting with the audience.” Elaborating on the reason for choosing Cyrus, Hutton said, “We wanted to work with him for a long time. He will play a key role in driving the show. His cricket knowledge is superb.”
The show will kick off with Yuvraj Singh who made his debut for India in 2000, at the age of eighteen.
Though the show will have 16 episodes, it might be extended depending on the response from viewers, Hutton informed.
