Mumbai:After being the mentor of several young players in the Australian team, former captain Steve Waugh will now help in finding the next Indian cricket star by judging a nationwide talent hunt.

The hunt, which will kick off in November, will be shown as a reality show on television.

The contest would be open to players from across the nation, a release issued here today stated.

The nationwide search will culminate in the selection of a group of top contenders and will identify a single cricket star through an elimination process, who will get a chance to play with the leading players.

A battery of ex-international and national cricket stars will work in conjunction with Waugh as jury members.
