|Johannesburg, June 8 – The man who used to famously say “Curtly talks to no-one” will be doing quite the opposite when South Africa’s Test series against the West Indies – to be broadcast live on SuperSport – starts this week.
Curtly Ambrose, among the greatest bowlers of all time, will be in the commentary booth when the series begins in St Lucia on Thursday.
The other members making up the West Indies commentary crew are former international batsman Daren Ganga, international left-hander Stacy-Ann King and Fazeer Mohammed. Joining them on microphone duties will be Natalie Germanos (SA) and Mike Haysman (Australia).
Former West Indies leg spinner Samuel Badree will do duties in the T20 series, which begins on June 26 with the first of five matches.
Jeremy Fredericks, Johan van der Wath, Gerhardus Liebenberg, Shafiek Abrahams and Johnny Davids will anchor Afrikaans commentary.
The Test action will be broadcast from 3.45pm daily (SS Cricket) with post-match analysis provided by Shaun Pollock , Vernon Philander and Eric Simons.
