BOTHAM and PONTING special guests tonight on THE FRONT BAR ASHES special

- ADVERTISEMENT -

The Front Bar returns to our screens tonight with a brand cricket special featuring two of cricket’s and the Ashes’ all-time greats.

Former England star all-rounder Lord Ian Botham and Australia’s all-time leading run-scorer, Ricky Ponting will join Mick Molloy, Sam Pang and Andy Maher at the bar.

Mick Molloy said he was looking forward to swapping his trusty Sherrin for a Kookaburra:

“It’s great because we can all relate to cricketers. Andy’s like Don Bradman, but the Don in the 1970s. I’m your Merv Hughes type who does the heavy lifting, and Pang is like Phil Tufnell – funny, but can’t bowl to save himself.”

The Front Bar will be back next Thursday, 2 December, at 8.30pm for a second Ashes Edition, when the special guests will include Australian wicket-keeping great Rod Marsh.

Managing Director Seven Melbourne and Head of Network Sport, Lewis Martin, said:

“It’s already been a cracking summer of cricket, but things crank up a gear this week. We’ve reached crunch time in the world’s #1 women’s T20 competition, with this year’s WBBL finals series set to be decided over three epic contests.

The Front Bar returns for the Ashes Edition at 8.30pm Thursday on Channel 7 and 7plus in all capital cities.
