Cricket has seen only a few commentators match up to Harsha Bhogle’s wit, understanding of the sport and way with words.

The noted commentator was sacked by the Board for the Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) from the ongoing ninth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on April 11.

“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. But I genuinely hope it isn’t because cricketers have complained about what I have to say,” posted Bhogle on his Facebook page.
