A few days ago, we were pleasantly surprised to see a fresh-faced female analyst on Set Max talking about the intricacies of the IPL in great depth. It was a welcome change from the middle-aged "experts," whose archaic views and lame attempts at humor make us want to flip channels the moment the on-field action stops.
The pretty lady in question is Isha Guha, a former England cricketer, who's now a part of ITV Sport's IPL coverage team. While broaching pertinent issues, Guha exudes the kind of charm that broadcasters typically try to inject through some hot-looking host without any cricketing knowledge.
While Guha announced her retirement from international cricket in March, she's going to continue her county cricket career with Berkshire. This 26-year-old (that's right, she's still quite young!) made her ODI debut back in 2001--when she was just 16! She went on to play 94 one-dayers for her country during a decade-long stint.
This right-arm medium pacer was also named the BBC Asian Network Sports Personality of the Year in 2002. She was even the top-ranked female bowler in the world in 2008, and has even played 137 Tests for England.
In other words, this gal knows what she's talking about when it comes to cricket! We say, bring her on full-time as it will not only bring in a fresh perspective to the analysts' table, but it will also increase viewership!
For now, we're glad to know that a deserving female sports personality such as Isha Guha is breaking through the badly-aging male-dominated field of cricket analysts. Besides, she goes a long way in dispelling the age-old myth that hot women don't care about cricket!
