Former India captain Anil Kumble and his former India teammate Harbhajan Singh will be interacting with fans in New York on February 24, as a part of Indian Premier League (IPL) promotional program. They are expected to answer questions from hundreds of fans in a sold out venue in New York.
The event is hosted by Hotstar, IPL’s digital partner, who has made headways into the US market. The Willow channel in US will show the IPL matches also. The best thing to see is that former India coach Anil Kumble will be present for the fan interaction, giving an indication that he is returning to the national cricket scene, after his controversial resignation from India’s head coach position last year.
Come April, he could be part of the commentary/studio chat of the league on Star.
Harbhajan Singh, who was not retained by Mumbai Indians, the franchise he had played for the last decade, was bought by Chennai Super Kings for the IPL 2018 edition and will be seen playing under MS Dhoni for the yellow brigade.
