Former Sri Lankan all-rounder Farveez Maharoof will join the international commentary team for the remainder of the ongoing India tour of Sri Lanka.
The 36-year-old will be replacing senior commentator Roshan Abeysinghe in the Com-box as Abeysinghe withdrew from the commitment to seek medical attention.
He will join the commentary team on the 3rd ODI which is to be played tomorrow, 23rd July, and continue through the 3 T20Is.
Maharoof has been growing steadily in the international commentary field post-retirement. Following this series, he will fly out to Bangladesh as a neutral expert commentator for Australia’s tour of Bangladesh.
