I'm not familiar with the role he plays, but from what I've read she will be like a roving reporter. She'll probably talk about the crowd atmosphere, weather conditions, conduct interviews with the players and that sort of thing, and may even be involved in the pitch reports in some way. Basically she will be a host, not a commentator, as she is a presenter and not a cricket player by profession. It's basically the same sort of role that Simon O'Donnell plays for Channel 9 currently, where he hosts things from the studio and so on but isn't actually in the commentary box.
She was apparently headhunted by 9 specifically for the job because of the work she did hosting the World Cup.
