Team India registered another dominating win in the first of the three-match T20I series against South Africa by 28 runs at the Wanderers on Sunday. They outplayed the hosts in all the three departments and dominated the game much like they did throughout the ODI series. The legendary Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan was pleased after India’s victory but took an indirect dig on Harsha Bhogle on his commentary.

However, Twitterati wasn’t amused with his tweet and came out in support of the famous cricket analyst who is often tipped as ‘Voice of Cricket’. This is not the first time Amitabh has criticised the commentators. During the World T20 in 2016 which was hosted by India, he had tweeted about an ‘Indian commentator’ being biased during the game between the hosts and Bangladesh. The match had gone down to the wire and India had managed to see a victory by just a single run.

Soon after the World T20 2016, Harsha Bhogle was removed from the commentary panel of BCCI as even some of the Indian cricketers also voiced the same concern. However, he had cleared later in his statement that he never wanted to hurt anyone’s feelings and was just doing his job.

Once again, after a couple of years, the same debate has resurfaced with Mr. Bachchan pointing out the prejudice commentary during the first T20I between India and South Africa. Though this time he has asked them to continue doing the same as the Men in Blue always come out on top. His tweet read, “INDIA wins first T20 against SoAf .. brilliant play .. loved the aggression .. and loved the bias commentating .. keep doing that please ..coz’ every time you do that we WIN handsomely !”

The fans of Harsha Bhogle were aware of the events happened in the aftermath of his tweet in 2016 and quickly came out in his support. While some of them suggested the legendary actor to work on his knowledge about the game, few lashed out at him saying that the commentators are doing their job and let them do the same.

Here are the reactions of the Twitterati on Bachchan’s comments:
