Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar will make his debut as an on-air expert in the ICC ODI World Cup, starting Thursday, in the United Kingdom.


The Master Blaster will take his place in the commentary box ahead of  the tournament opener between hosts England and South Africa.

Tendulkar joins an illustrious panel of experts in the pre-show on ‘Star Sports’. He will have his own segment Sachin Opens Again.

The 46-year-old, who represented India in six World Cups, holds the record, 673 in 2003, for scoring the highest number of runs in a single edition of the World Cup.
