Mandira Bedi, who shot to fame by anchoring the telecast of the 2003 World Cup in a noodle-strap, will give voice updates on Cricket World Cup starting February 19.
Mandira Bedi said to The Mobile Indian, “This year I will not be doing anchoring on TV for the World Cup. Instead I will give hourly voice updates about the cricket matches that will be played during the World Cup, on a leading mobile service.”
She didn’t share the name of the telco that she will work for, but our sources believe it to be Vodafone.
Talking about her journey from being the lead of popular TV series Shanti to becoming the first lady of cricket, she said, “Initially when I started as a cricket host I was nervous but wanted to keep things simple and not behave as an expert of the game.”
She added that things have changed now as she understands the game better and people have accepted her as a cricket host rather than as a cricket expert.
