Mumbai: While he is away from commentary duties following his IPL exit, Harsha Bhogle has not deprived his followers from his insights. However, he got a warning of sorts as Jonathan Agnew – former English cricketer and a renowned commentator – asked Bhogle to be “careful” about his comments on Twitter on Friday.

The voice of Indian cricket was dropped from cash-rich league’s commentary team despite his name being on the roster. As Bhogle said he is not aware of the reason.

 

It was reported that BCCI decided to drop Bhogle from the panel of commentators following a feedback from social media and players.

Bhogle, although not named, was critcised by Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan following India vs Bangladesh game in ICC World Twenty20 last month.

 

MS Dhoni’s retweet to Bachchan’s tweet did not help the matters much.

 

Bhogle went on to tell his side of the story with a Facebook post.

Although there is no clarity, there is speculation that Bhogle was sidelined following an alleged exchange of words with a Vidarbha Cricket Association official during India-New Zealand World T20 game in Nagpur.

 

But even before the issue has settled down, Bhogle got a warning, rather friendlier one, from Agnew after the former tweeted about MS Dhoni’s missed stumping during Rising Pune Supergiants versus Gujarat Lions game in Rajkot on Thursday.
