A star-studded HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2019 commentary panel including former South African captain Graeme Smith, former Australian batsman Matthew Hayden and former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja were unveiled by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) here on Wednesday
"It's a quality tournament and I have followed it over the past three years. The opportunity to commentate at this year's HBL PSL is an exciting one and I look forward to watching talented cricketers from Pakistan playing alongside some leading international stars," he said.
Smith will be in the commentary box for the first two weeks of the tournament due to prior personal commitments.
Matthew Hayden, widely regarded as one of the most feared opening batsmen in recent history, has made his name as a commentator with stints in both international and league cricket. The former Australian opening batsman will be in the HBL PSL 2019 commentary box for the first week of the tournament.
"This year will be no different and I can't wait to experience what the tournament has to offer this year with eight matches being held in Pakistan," he added.
