Arguably the most popular commentator in world cricket, Harsha Bhogle has become an inspiration to an entire generation of fans who have heard his voice and later seen him on TV for well over two decades now. (BREAKING : Big Update on Harsha Bhogle’s IPL status ! )
But it was just before the last season of the IPL that we shocked by the news that Harsha will not be part of the IPL commentary team for season nine.
Harsha was surprised and hurt himself while his legion of fans went into social meltdown as they suspected some foul play from the BCCI. (BREAKING : Big Update on Harsha Bhogle’s IPL status ! )
Harsha sent down this tweet after he was given the news.

But news has filtered in today that Harsha Bhogle may very well be brought back into the fold for season 10 of the IPL which will start in a few weeks time. And the reason why he may be back is because of the following reasons :
The office bearers, who were at the helm when Bhogle was removed from the panel, no longer have any control over the decision making that runs within the board. Vinod Rai who heads the CoA now has that power.
The likes of Waqar Younis, Rameez Raza and other former Pakistani players not likely to feature because of the tense relationship between India and Pakistan. So the host broadcasters are now looking for a big name to replace those two and Harsha fits the bill. (BREAKING : Big Update on Harsha Bhogle’s IPL status ! )
For his fans, Harsha Bhogle’s return would be a celebrated event as he still remains as popular as ever in the cricketing world. Let us hope that this news is indeed true and we do get to hear him once again !
