Harsha Bhogle Sacked – Social Media Outraged

This year Indian Premier League( IPL) will miss the familiar voice of commentator Harsha Bhogle. The 54 year old commentator who has been part of IPL since season 1 will miss the 9th edition of the tournament as his contract has been terminated by the BCCI. This decision came as a surprise to many as he had conducted the Season 9 draft auction, featured in the league’s promotional videos, was in the commentators’ 51-day-long duty roster, and even had his flight booked by the production house. BCCI officals remain tight- lipped about the ouster. Sources inside the BCCI said  about an incident which occurred during India’s opening WorldT20 game at Nagpur last month, where Bhogle is reported to have had a heated exchange with a Vidharbha Cricket Association official. They felt this could be the reason for his last-minute ouster.

Harsha speaking to the media said that he is unaware of any reason of why he is being sacked, and when told about the reference to the Nagpur incident he had this to say

Even if it was the Nagpur incident, no one heard my part of the story.

Harsha announced about this on Twitter yesterday.

Ever since the announcement twitter has been flooded with user backing Harsha and Slamming BCCI. A new trend #BringBackHarsha started trending on Twitter since morning today and the Twitteriti came out in full support of their favorite Cricket commentator.

Here’s a look at some of the latest Tweets.
