Justin Langer makes his commentary debut for Seven

The Seven Network has unveiled its cricket commentary team, with a line-up full of internationally acclaimed icons, on and off the field.

Launching with the Australia v West Indies Test, before the battle between Australia and South Africa, Seven’s commentary team has received a boost with the arrival of former Australian Cricket Team coach, Justin Langer.

Ahead of his commentary debut for Seven, Justin Langer said: “My favourite place to tour as a player, and coach, was the West Indies.

“Each country in the West Indies has its unique characteristics, but what is consistent is the West Indians’ love for the game of cricket. Their athleticism is elite, and their fast bowlers are always fun to watch. The West Indian fast bowlers love bowling bouncers and this always provides great entertainment. West Indies and Australian cricket each have a rich history. Let’s hope this summer adds more layers to that story.”

Also joining Seven’s cricket line-up, headlined by Ricky Ponting, is three celebrated international figures: former West Indies fast bowlers Ian Bishop and Michael Holding, and former South African cricket star – and arguably the greatest fielder of his time – Jonty Rhodes.

A who’s who of former on-field stars and fan favourites will also return to Seven’s cricket team in 2022-23, including Greg Blewett, James Brayshaw, Trent Copeland, Callum Ferguson, Holly Ferling, Damien Fleming, Matthew Hayden, Brad Hodge, Erin Holland, Simon Katich, Tim Lane, Andy Maher, Mel McLaughlin, Alison Mitchell, Alister Nicholson, Jason Richardson, Lisa Sthalekar, Simon Taufel and Elyse Villani.

They will be joined by former New Zealand wicketkeeper Katey Martin off the back of her role with Seven’s WBBL coverage, while current Big Bash stars Sam Billings, Alex Carey, Aaron Finch, Moises Henriques and Glenn Maxwell will be regulars on Seven’s live and free BBL coverage.
