Seven boss Tim Worner is keen to lure Denis Cometti from retirement for it’s upcoming Cricket broadcasts.
“I can certainly tell you that I have reached out to Dennis Cometti,” he told the Seven-owned West Australian.
“Dennis is someone who I believe is a superb commentator and he actually started I think calling cricket.
“He’s called a lot of cricket and he’s exceptionally good at it.”
Worner praised TEN’s Big Bash coverage but wants to refresh Test cricket presentation.
There is, however, speculation that Seven may top and tail FOX Sports-produced Cricket broadcasting.
FOS Sports wants commentator Bill Lawry, 81, in a part-time role, including Melbourne’s Boxing Day Test match and one-dayers, the article notes.
Ricky Ponting and Adam Gilchris from TEN’s Big Bash League coverage, are also likely to be in demand.
