David Warner is joining the FOX CRICKET commentary team.
Foxtel Group Chief Executive Officer Patrick Delany announced today that David Warner, one of the Australia’s greatest-ever batsmen, would join the world-class FOX CRICKET commentary team.
“David Warner has been one of our most exciting cricketers since he burst onto the international scene in 2009, and we are thrilled that he will be joining our world-class FOX CRICKET team,” Delany said.
“A fiercely loyal and tough competitor on-field, he is an exceptional analyst of the game and will bring unique insights and perspective to our Fox Sports coverage through FOX CRICKET across Foxtel and Kayo Sports.”
Fox Sports Executive Director Steve Crawley said: “We will never replace Shane Warne or Andrew Symonds on the FOX CRICKET commentary team. But if you were given just one shot at picking a recruit from all of world cricket you’d pick David Warner.
“When he came out to bat you could double your audience. He made cricket exciting.
“And he’s the same in the twilight of his career as he was in the beginning – a swashbuckling, fearless individual.
“I’ve been around sports broadcasting a long time and believe David Warner is made for commentary the same he was made to open the batting. He’s most welcome onto our Fox team.”
David Warner will join the world-class FOX CRICKET commentary team of Adam Gilchrist, Isa Guha, Michael Hussey, Allan Border, Mark Waugh, Kerry O’Keeffe, Brett Lee, Brendon Julian, Mel Jones, Mark Howard and Kath Loughnan. This team has been joined over the Test summer by West Indian legend Brian Lara, and South African superstar Shaun Pollock, as guest analysts.
