Harsha Bhogle’s commentary contract was terminated by BCCI just before the Indian Premier League (IPL) Season 9 began.
Recently the Board of Control for Cricket in India has been dealing with a number of controversies. Apart from the IPL match shifting issue, the BCCI was also in the news for terminating commentator Harsha Bhogle’s contract for the Indian Premier League which began on 9th April. After the news spread, his fans and well wishers had reached out to him on Twitter telling him that they were on his side. Bhogle had said that – ”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.” Meanwhile Amul, one of India’s top dairy brands, sent out a tweet from its twitter handle showing its take on the whole issue but on a lighter note.
Along with the tweet, came a picture which showed how the issue was – “Harsh on Bhogle” and a lady commentator taking his place in the commentary box.
Harsha Bhogle is shown leaving the commentary box in the animated cartoon. Well, Amul certainly nailed this one.
Bhogle had earlier written on Facebook, “I must confess I am a little uncomfortable with all the attention I have been getting recently. I am just a cricket commentator. I go to a cricket match, tell the story of what happened, look for joy within it if possible and come back feeling blessed to have had the opportunity.
I tell the story, I am not the story.”
While the official statement from BCCI was – “When deciding the commentators, we take feedback from everyone. We monitor social media reactions on commentators, and also take inputs from players.”
