The lecture will be attended by all the members of the current Indian team and the visiting South African side. Also in attendance will be the bigwigs of the BCCI, including its President and ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar and Secretary Anurag Thakur.

The same year, Anil Kumble delivered this lecture for a second time in Mumbai. VVS Laxman was the speaker for this event in 2014 with Kolkata being the venue.
