Hindi commentary losing sheen: Doshi

SUSHIL DOSHI, one of the most popular Hindi cricket commentators, is disappointed with the way TV commentators now-a-days twist the language to lace it with slangs. He was in the City to attend the naming ceremony of BHEL Sports Complex. Doshi said Hindi commentary is passing through its worst phase.

SUSHIL DOSHI, one of the most popular Hindi cricket commentators, is disappointed with the way TV commentators now-a-days twist the language to lace it with slangs. He was in the City to attend the naming ceremony of BHEL Sports Complex. Doshi said Hindi commentary is passing through its worst phase.

“There was a time when Hindi commentary had a distinct place among viewers and audience but gradually, with arrival of number of channels and other media, Hindi commentary lost its depth and sheen”, he said.

Doshi is also not happy with the way young commentators tend to imitate great commentators. “I have noticed that young commentators try to imitate me and other greats like Jaswant Singh. Rather than imitating us, they should develop their own style of commentary”, he opined.

He further said that during our times people could easily recognise the voice of the commentator but that is not happening now.
