India’s most reputed and respected cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle is terminated from his job by BCCI. It was believed that Bhogle’s praise for Bangladesh during India vs Bangladesh match at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore irritated a few Indian cricket fans like Amitabh Bachchan. The legendary Bollywood actor after the end of the match said it will be good if commentators talk about India other than Bangladesh. Bhogle later explained the reason why commentators have to talk about other countries. As Star Sports was the official broadcaster of WT20 commentary was also available in other countries, so they also need to talk about other countries . And in the Bangladesh match, India have won the match because of two experienced Bangladesh batsmen’s error more than Dhoni and Pandya’s bowling.
However, the real reason yet to be known.
Twitter is ridiculed and slammed BCCI for terminating the IPL contract with Bhogle.
In case it’s still not obvious, I respect Harsha Bhogle way too much to be okay with the stupidity @bcci indulges in.
He is a role model.

May be IPL is going the WWE way. Like in a match lights will go off & Harsha Bhogle will appear standing right behind Sanjay Manjrekar.

Harsha Bhogle must be from General Category so he was dropped.

Harsha Bhogle must be feeling like that police officer, who got suspended because he did his duty honestly.

Suspect there’s much more to this whole Harsha Bhogle affair than tweets by Big B and MSD
Was he talking too much cricket for the BCCI
