3 players who played international cricket and also did commentary in the last two years
Cricketers turning into commentators is a common occurence. However, for the retiring cricketers, on most occasions, it is only after a while that they are away from the team that they retire and then become the commentators. In some cases, though, there have been instances of cricketers playing international cricket and doing commentary within a short period. On that note, in this article, we take a look at three players who played international cricket and also did commentary in the last two years.
1) Dinesh Karthik
Dinesh Karthik took to commentary after not getting a chance with Team India. He was a part of the Sky Sports panel for a long time before he switched to Cricbuzz. However, when most of them had considered him "retired", DK came back to the Indian Team after a strong show in IPL 2022. Hence, he belongs to a rare category of cricketers who did commentary and then returned to mainstream cricket.
2) Eoin Morgan
Eoin Morgan is also one of the players who played international cricket and also did commentary in the last two years. In a big surprise, the former English skipper retired from the game. On the day he announced his retirement itself, Sky announced him as one of the new recruits to the commentary panel. In the England vs India series, the 2019 World Cup-winning skipper was behind the microphone.
3) Ryan ten Doeschate
The former Netherlands cricketer played the game for his country in 2021. He announced retirement and later took to coaching for the TalkSport. Therefore, the former KKR cricketer is also a part of this list of players who played international cricket and also did commentary in the last two years. He is a legend in Dutch Cricket and has a lot to give to the game in his country.
