In that time he has presented a variety of live sport including 2 Cricket World Cups, 2 World T20s, world championship boxing, international rugby union and La Liga. He has been a fixture of Sky’s award winning cricket coverage over the last few years having been the lead presenter of the Indian Premier League for 4 seasons as well as hosting the Test match Verdict show, England T20 Internationals and numerous county cricket Outside Broadcasts. Aside from live sport, Matt also loves the magazine show format and spent 5 summers presenting Cricket AM alongside Sarah Jane Mee.
After 3 years presenting live La Liga games for Sky Matt secured a regular spot hosting the popular Fan Zone show for Premier League Television. An extremely adaptable broadcaster, he’s also presented for Sky Sports News and produced and presented a number of longer form features and documentaries. In the summer of 2018 his documentary ‘England’s South Asian Conundrum’ was broadcast on Sky Sports, an extensive investigation into why British Asian cricketers are not progressing to professional level in the numbers they should be. Before he worked as a presenter Matt cut his teeth as a features reporter,travelling to places such as Australia, South Africa, the Caribbean and Sri Lanka to cover big cricket events.
Matt is also an accomplished event host and has compered events such as the ECB Business of Cricket Awards, Lord’s Taverners Sporting Chance Awards and Yorkshire Gala Dinner to name just a few. In addition to this he has hosted
many other corporate events and sports Q&As and is actively involved with the Lord’s Taverners and a handful of other charities.
Being half Indian and half English Matt was always going to be a cricket fan and isn’t a bad player himself – he got a ‘Blue’ for representing Oxford University in the Varsity Match and even scored an unbeaten century in the match to help win the game. He’s equally as passionate about football and can regularly be found at Emirates Stadium cheering and getting frustrated in equal measure as he watches his beloved Arsenal. Away from sport he doesn’t like his life to be too quiet and loves to travel when he can – there are still many places yet to be crossed off the list though! Despite swearing he would never sit an exam again in 2017/18 he took the Advanced Diploma in Sports Journalism, which he passed with a merit so has achieved the Level 5 Certificate in Professional Sports Journalism.
