BRING BACK HARSHA BHOGLE!
This petition had 48 supporters
In April 2016, prolific cricket commentator, Harsha Bhogle had his IPL contract abruptly terminated, for reasons unknown.
Reports have suggested that the axing is due to tweets by Amitabh Bachchan and MS Dhoni or due to Virat Kohli and Murali Vijay being infuriated by his questions and/or commentary. These facts aren't verified. These celebrities have criticized Harsha for NOT being biased, towards the Indian Cricket Team, by giving a holistic view of the match and by paying due attention to both teams.
BCCI has always tried to be accountable whenever their selectors sack an iconic cricketer, but hasn't given cricket fans any information whatsoever, regarding the exemplary commentator's axing.
We, the cricket fans of India, demand the BCCI to reinstate Harsha Bhogle, indubitably, the best Indian cricket commentator of all time.
If Mr. Bhogle's IPL contract is not renewed for IPL 2017, the repercussions could be serious. A large number of people shall boycott Extra Innings T20 and shall use the Cricbuzz app (where Harsha gives interesting insights into the game), instead of the official IPL app. Furthermore, the Fandromeda website/app shall be used instead of the official IPL Fantasy League.
