Hussain to host cricket's night of nights

New Delhi: Former England captain and celebrated commentator Nasser Hussain will host the LG ICC Awards at a glittering ceremony in Dubai on Wednesday.

Hussain, who led England in 45 Tests in an international career spanning 15 years, retired from international cricket in 2004 before starting his stint with television commentary with BSkyB.

Hussain's debut as an awards presenter will be in front of a grand media coverage which will reach 100 countries and territories.

ESPN STAR Sports' Alan Wilkins will work with Hussain during the evening as a reporter and interviewer, capturing the flavour of cricket's night of nights when the world’s leading performers are recognised and honoured.

The LG ICC Awards is now in its fifth year but this is the first time the ceremony has taken place in the United Arab Emirates, the home of the ICC.
