Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) ousted Harsha Bhogle from the commentating team of the ongoing cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL).
But everyone has reported this is the tweet that started it all.
T 2184 – With all due respects, it would be really worthy of an Indian commentator to speak more about our players than others all the time.

Speculation is this tweet from Amitabh Bachchan and on the suggestion of some senior players Harsha Bhogle was shown the door.

BCCI has maintained a strange silence over the ouster and has not yet given any reason for its wrong doing.
Twitter meanwhile has yet again shown support to the man who’s right and righteously follows his duties.
@MalikAshok Maybe we will find the reason, Ashok! Cheers!

Being an avid cricket fan,will surely miss @bhogleharsha not on the Mike. BCCI think again! He is a star commentator and knowledgable too.

IPL should get back Harsha Bhogle into the commentary box & drop Sidhu instead.
Value will go up, and more importantly, volume will go down.

As alumnus from my college @bhogleharsha is an inspiration for all who try to take on a different path in life. Hope justice is done.
