Bhogle has been absent from the commentating on International fixtures for quite sometime. The last international tournament that Bhogle commentated on was the ICC World T20 2016 which was held in India.
He was controversially removed from the commentary panel after the conclusion of the tournament. There was no reason given for this parting of ways, and there were conspiracy theories fuelling the fire.
Bhogle himself was disheartened from all this and posted a long heartfelt message on facebook after the incident.
I must confess I am a little uncomfortable with all the attention I have been getting recently. I am just a cricket…
The Board of Control of Cricket In India(BCCI) faced a lot of backlash from the fans after the controversial decision to exclude Bhogle from the commentary box. However, Bhogle remained extremely active on social media platforms and offered his views through multiple outlets. He even did Hindi commentary on Indian Premier League 2017.
His former colleague on the Hindi commentary box, Akash Chopra congratulated Bhogle on tweeter.
Welcome back, Harsha. Commentary box was poorer in your absence. Go well 😊👍
