While the international and IPL games have already groped everyone’s attention full clock, every year we are also introduced to new female anchors who are already well-known celebrities and have been successful in alluring the audience with their witty and charismatic style of communication.
A decade ago, while anchoring, the ball was always in the men’s court, but now the time has changed and more female anchors have established themselves in the last few years.
Case in point, Isa Guha is one of the popular female anchors in the world. She plied her trade for the England women’s cricket team. She played from 2001 to 2011 where she put an end to her cricketing career on March 9, 2012. Isa is now one of the best well-known commentators in cricket.
She was also a part of the Ashes 2019 on English soil after which she received the opportunity to report on Steve Smith’s Test century on return after the ball-tampering scandal.
She is a Test Match Special commentator and a column journalist for the BBC Sports website. Moreover, Guha was a member of the broadcasting panel in the 2019 World Cup which England won. The Buckinghamshire-born married musician Richard Thomas in September 2018.
Meanwhile, the former England cricketer and a famous commentator hogged the headlines for asking a dirty question to a commentator. She is currently commentating on the ongoing 11th edition of the Big Bash League. During a match between Melbourne stars versus Sydney Thunders, she was part of the commentary panel alongside former Australian cricketer Adam Gilchrist and another English commentator.
Meanwhile, the English commentator explained the art of bowling a good carrom ball. He added, “Spin bowling coaching clinics where the head coach has said, y’all know… You just show me your bowling hand. The guy or kid with longest middle finger was identified as a potential carrom-bowler.”
All of a sudden, Isa Guha replied, “how big is yours?” The double-meaning comment was followed by a sudden burst of laughter from the commentary panel and the support staff went viral on social media.
