India Today is back with another edition of Salaam Cricket, the mega cricket conclave that will bring some of the greats of the game in one platform. This year, the star-studded gathering will happen virtually on Saturday, June 13.
There is a lot to look forward to in the coming months as international cricket is all set to resume in July with West Indies taking on England in a 3-Test series in the Old Blighty after the forced break due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Cricket will be played under some strange circumstances in the near future in order to make sure the players, the fans and the stakeholders are safe but fans of the sport are eagerly looking forward to witnessing live action.
As we head into an interesting phase of the sport, former India captain Sunil Gavaskar will offer his thoughts on how the sport will look like when it resumes.
World Cup-winning fast bowler Madan Lal, RP Singh and former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin will also open up about the immediate future of the sport in the wake of the pandemic.
Well, there is a lot more on offer at Salaam Cricket. Sachin Tendulkar will be joining us for an exciting session ‘Sachin Sachin’.
