The COVID-19 crisis has put an end to LIVE sport and competition and yet at the same time has brought about a sense of comfort and familiarity allowing us the time to walk down memory lane. In times of global public health, Star Sports is using the extensive depth of technology to ensure that fans of cricket are never too far away from the sport.
Star Sports has developed an enjoyable format to engage with cricket fans and legends of the game and in the upcoming episode of Cricket Connected, the three cricketing superstars will be in conversation with host Jatin Sapru on May 2 & 3 at 1900 hrs. Rohit Sharma also will be part of the programme. This episode of Cricket Connected will be an extension of Rohit Sharma's birthday. The 'Hitman' will be seen interacting with Brett Lee and Irfan Pathan.
The fans of Gauti, Binga and Guddu can also expect an interesting discussion on the rare times when Captain Cool, MS Dhoni lost his calm and collected demeanour on the field. Every episode of Cricket Connected has segments like 'Ask Star' which gives fans the opportunity to tweet a question for the experts to answer and discuss some iconic cricketing moments.
A segment called 'Kids Connected', reaches out to cricket’s young fans and invites them to share home-made videos of them doing commentary which helps them to stay connected with the sport. The growing popularity and demand for the show in other preferred languages has now led to the broadcast of the show in Tamil, Kannada and Telugu on Star Sports 1 Tamil, Star Sports 1 Kannada and Star Sports 1 Telugu respectively.
