It will be aired on the Star Sports Network as part of Kent Cricket Live, read a statement to IANS.

Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” is set to release in India on April 27.

When quizzed on cricket, Cumberbatch said: “Graham Gooch was my hero when growing up. I loved playing cricket and because I was a wicket keeper, I had my eye on Jack Russell.” Lee asked Cumberbatch for his views on who would best fit the role of Doctor Strange.

He said: “Sachin Tendulkar would do quite well in fitting the role as Doctor Strange as he is quite extraordinary.” The interview will be aired on April 22.  (With IANS inputs).
