“I have followed cricket passionately all my life and have gained a good knowledge of the game. I have been a diehard cricket fan and follow the game religiously. I have been offered several projects but this is the cricket season.

I am taking my passion for the game into account, which is why I have decided to do the show,” says Veena, who is currently in India.

Veena Malik will be seen discussing cricketers and their performance on the show and talking about cricket tournaments played in Sri Lanka, where Team India had played a recent T20 match and also won the one-day series against the home team.

Veena will bring spice and interest to the show. Veena declares nonchalantly that she loves to anchor  sports shows.
