Brian Lara Joins Australia’s Best Call Team As Triple M Cricket Locks In 2022/23 Commentary Roster
Welcome the Prince
As the summer of cricket draws near Triple M Cricket is proud to announce the addition of West Indian legend Brian Lara to its all-star commentary team.
Lara joins Triple M Cricket for the two tests against the West Indies in Perth and Adelaide. "The Prince" scored 11,953 Test runs over his glittering 131 match career, including a world record 400* against England in 2004.
Lara joins the list of returning talent for Triple M Cricket in season 2022-23, including former Australian captain Mark Taylor, classy batter Mark Waugh, Greg Blewett and Callum Ferguson. Lord Ian Botham and Isabelle Westbury courageously abandon the English winter to join Triple M’s star-studded line-up.
Former South African Test bowler Morne Morkel will provide his insights for the matches against the Proteas in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, while fellow quick Mitch Johnson will be in the commentary box in Perth when Australia faces the West Indies on the fastest pitch in world cricket.
