Sony Sports Network has rolled out an extensive broadcast plan for the upcoming India tour of  Zimbabwe 2022. The three-match ODI series which will see a young Indian team touring  Zimbabwe after years will kickstart on 18th August 2022. All the matches of the high-octane  series will be telecasted LIVE on SONY SIX (English), SONY TEN 3 (Hindi), and SONY TEN 4  (Tamil & Telugu) channels as well as live-streamed on its on-demand OTT platform SonyLIV. 

Capturing the excitement around the series, Sony Sports Network has launched the ‘Experience  Tod Phod Cricket’ campaign. The campaign celebrates the return of our Men in Blue to Zimbabwe  after years and anticipates fireworks on the pitch with top-class cricket and entertainment from  the young brigade. 

In order to provide a comprehensive viewing experience to its viewers, Sony Sports Network  has announced the language feeds, commentators and panelists for its LIVE flagship studio  show for cricket, EXTRAAA INNINGS. The wraparound show will feature former cricketers Saba  Karim, Ajay Jadeja, Maninder Singh, Robin Uthappa, Dirk Viljoen, RP Singh, Mohammad Kaif, Vivek Razdan, Paul Valthaty along with presenters Matt Floyd and Arjun Pandit as part of the  English and Hindi coverage. The Tamil language commentary will be provided by WV Raman, Laxman Sivaramakrishnan, Thirush Kamini, Arun Venugopal, and Vidyut Sivaramakrishnan.  Former cricketer Venkatpathy Raju along with Gnaneshwara Rao, Sandeep B, Rakesh Deva, and  Sudheer Mahavadi will be seen doing Telugu language commentary. 

The much-anticipated series will see a young team India led by KL Rahul along with Shikhar  Dhawan, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Deepak Hooda, and Avesh Khan representing the nation. On the other  hand, Zimbabwe will rely on their new captain Regis Chakabva along with Sikandar Raza, Ryan  Burl, and Wesley Madhevere to make a mark against Team India. 


Rajesh Kaul, Chief Revenue Officer, Distribution and Head – Sports Business, Sony  Pictures Networks India:  

“A young Indian team will be touring a new Zimbabwean side and the squad led by  KL Rahul will guarantee top class cricket to engage cricket lovers. We endeavor to  provide a holistic viewing experience to the fans with the live broadcast of the series  in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu along with a panel of former cricketers as part of  our studio offering.” 

Saba Karim, Former Indian Cricketer: 

“It is exciting to see a young Indian cricket team taking the charge and representing  the nation in various international series. While the team will be playing under the  close watch of some senior players like KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan, the series will  be crucial for preparing the young players for major cricket tournaments. I also think 

Team India shouldn’t take Zimbabwe lightly, as their recent performance during the  Bangladesh tour has highlighted their growth and they can possibly give Team India  run for their money.” 

Mohammad Kaif, Former Indian Cricketer: 

“Zimbabwe is in good form and they have the chance to showcase their talent in this  series against India. However, despite missing some key players, India is still a strong  squad and we have a great team with players hungry to perform and grab the  opportunity to make their mark with this series in Zimbabwe.”
