Finch and Ferguson are drafted into Triple M’s Ashes cricket team

Aaron Finch has padded up and will join the Triple M and LiSTNR cricket commentary line up for the 2021-22 Vodafone Ashes series.

Finch, who captained the Australian T20 team to World Cup Victory, will be joined by former Sydney Thunder captain and South Australian 14 season veteran Callum Ferguson.

One of Australia’s favourite comedians, Andy Lee, is also taking a seat at the commentary desk, providing his unique take on the series.

Rounding out the new line up additions is Triple M’s very own cricket tragic, Gus Worland.

The newest recruits join cricket Royalty Sir Ian Botham and Mark Taylor in the commentary box for what’s set to be an action packed 2021-22 Summer of Cricket.

Triple M’s all-star commentary team will be led by James Brayshaw and Australia’s #1 sports podcaster Mark Howard, with former Ashes greats Greg Blewett, Brad Haddin, Merv Hughes, and former international cricketer Isabelle Westbury, alongside Triple M regulars, Emma Freedman, and Nat Yoannidis.

Finch says, “I’m really excited to be joining the Triple M cricket commentary team this summer. I’ve always loved the station and can’t wait to work with the team and have some fun during the Ashes.” 

Andy Lee says, “Having done tours in the Caribbean, the last Ashes in the UK and numerous tests across Australia over the last decade, I can remember roughly half of them due to the number of beers consumed. That puts me in good enough stead to commentate the Cricket for Triple M.”

SCA National Head of Sports and Partnerships, Trevor Crook, says, “Talent led integration that provides meaningful and effective connection with audiences at scale is at the core of every Triple M sport partnership. It’s a tried, tested and proven model over many years of Triple M Footy and we look forward to delivering for all of our cricket partners this summer.”

In an Australian first, LiSTNR will stream every game Australia wide.
