Cape Town - Proteas Test captain Graeme Smith believes that his active involvement in cricket will ensure that he offers viewers an insight into the mind of the modern cricketer when he makes his TV pundit debut during SuperSport’s broadcast of the ICC Champions Trophy, starting on Thursday (11:30)

Stuck in the office without a TV? If so, be sure to follow Sport24's LIVE interactive commentary on Thursday.

“I’m looking forward to being on the other end of the TV for a change, and even though I still have much to learn in my new role, my active involvement in the game will enable me to offer the viewer an insight into the mind of the modern cricketer.”

Smith joins former team-mates Shaun Pollock, Boeta Dippenaar and HD Ackerman who are now seasoned analysts and commentators, as well as Kepler Wessels, who will all form part of SuperSport’s panel during the tournament.

All 15 Champions Trophy matches will be broadcast live on SuperSport 2 and 2HD.

Speaking on the tournament and the Proteas' chances, Smith said getting to grips with the Cardiff pitch will be key for South Africa.

“The Cardiff wicket is often slow and the ball doesn’t come onto the bat the way one would like it. The faster the openers adapt to these conditions, the better our chances of going far in the tournament.”
