Mumbai: Famous cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle’s ouster from the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL) this season has left a deep void in the commentary team. While there is still no concrete reason on what could have triggered off the IIM-A alumnus’ departure from the league, Bhogle hopes it’s not due to any cricketer’s complaints.
“I still don't know why I am not doing the IPL. I haven't been told. I can accept the fact that people don't like me. But I genuinely hope it isn't because cricketers have complained about what I have to say,” Bhogle wrote on his recent Facebook post.
However, the 54-year-old might have landed himself in a bit of trouble again. A twitter user mentioned the current commentary team “without Harsha is like a pizza without exotic topings..Miss the attention to detail”. Bhogle retweeted the same.
His retweet didn’t go down well with former Indian cricketer-turned-commentator Sanjay Manjrekar.
Quite amused Harsha retweeted that the current IPL commentary team is like a pizza without toppings.— Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) April 12, 2016
After learning about the retweet, Manjrekar, part of the panel of IPL 2016, was ‘quite amused’ and expressed his feelings in a tweet.
