In his career so far, in addition to anchoring lots of Bollywood and OTT entertainment content for 9XM, Manish has also hosted the biggest cricket properties in the world – T20 World Cup, ODI Cricket World Cup, IPL on Hotstar, etc. since 2013, in addition to hosting and commentating on many other marquee sports properties on STAR Sports and Sony Sports. He has recently hosted ‘Spicy Pitch’ a 20-part interview series with the current Indian cricket stars which is currently streaming on India’s largest digital cricket platform Cricbuzz! Manish is all set to bring his trademark irreverence and wit in some fun conversations with cricket legends.
The Road Safety World Series will be broadcast live on Colors Cineplex and Viacom’s Voot. This T20 extravaganza will feature some of the most admired legends of Cricket like Sachin Tendulkar, Brian Lara, Jacques Kallis, Yuvraj Singh, Virender Sehwag, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Brett Lee, Zaheer Khan, Ajantha Mendis, Jonty Rhodes, Romesh Kaluwitharana, Shivnarine Chanderpaul and many more!
Manish will be seen bringing some exclusive content around this T20 tournament on Voot and he says, “These are heroes that define the romance of cricket for me! I have grown up watching them over the years and it’s a super opportunity to get to interview those that have a treasure of stories and glorious moments to share from their vast awe-inspiring careers. It’s an absolute honour and I can’t wait to get into action mode for this series which is also being played for a great cause. While there’ll be good natured fun and banter in the interviews, it’s great to know that this series will also lead to greater awareness on Road Safety in India. I’m super excited to host my first gig with the Viacom family and I hope it leads to many more such fun anchoring opportunities in entertainment and sports with one of the most admired media companies in the world! Do catch all the fun conversations with these legends on Voot this March. It’ll be fun because #YehJungHaiLegendary.”
The tournament kicks off on the 7th of March, Saturday, at our very own Wankhede Stadium in Aamchi Mumbai and we wish Manish all the luck for yet another big gig in his career!
