Speaking of the new season, Brett Lee, Select Dugout expert, said, “Being part of the Select Dugout has always been an exciting experience. The Select Dugout has consistently provided real-time insights and analyses, ably assisted with the best possible technology in cricket broadcast to help fans understand what is going on in the minds of the players. It’s going to be a wonderful journey for fans to connect and celebrate the biggest cricket extravaganza. I will miss the presence of my fellow Aussie and the ever charismatic legend, Deano in the studio but I will make up for that with more demos at the Deano corner named after the Professor. This year, I am going to keep an eye out for the wonderkids who are going to create a splash in next year's player auctions.”

Viewers will be ahead of the game with ‘more game per game’ analyses and predictions coupled with unrivalled use of technology in cricket broadcast.
