The mischievous voice of Danny Morrison that had the potential to tickle your funniest bone in past seasons of the Indian Premier League is set to return on air as the tenth edition of the biggest T20 carnival starting Wednesday.
Besides, 51-year-old New Zealander Morrison there will be as many as 20 commentators, who would be travelling from across the globe to grace the IPL 2017.
Keeping both the entertainment and technical aspect in view, veterans like Michael Clarke, Kevin Pietersen, Brett Lee etc., who once played in the richest T20 league, will keep the spectators off their feet this time with their voice.
“It's always great to be in India and playing in or commentating on all of the explosive action that personifies the IPL. Coming back this time as a commentator is going to be an experience I will cherish for a long time,” former England batsman Kevin Pietersen said as quoted by IANS.
In the 2016 edition, Pietersen played for Rising Pune Supergiants, who finished the season on second-last position in final rankings. This year, the 36-year-old will appear in a new role and he is pretty happy to play this way.
“I always look forward to this tournament, but in my new role as commentator, I'm looking forward to it even more. I am sure my fellow commentators and I are going to have an absolute blast, calling all the action LIVE as it unfolds to the hundreds of millions of IPL fans,” he added.
Former Australia captain Michael Clarke, who recently tried his hands with the mic during Border-Gavaskar Trophy, is excited enough to join the IPL commentators’ team.
“I have been part of this tournament as a player and this year I am eager to get behind the microphone and have some fun. Love this place, love the tournament and it is great to be a part of this commentary team,” Clarke said.
It won’t be a masculine voice that you would hear throughout the season as female commentators such as Anjum Chopra, Isa Guha, Lisa Sthalekar and Melanie Jones would also be cheering the crowd up with their tuneful commentary.
The 47-day-long event would mark its beginning with defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) facing Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Wednesday.
