Harsha Bhogle Shuts Down Trolls Who Criticised Him For Interviewing Ravindra Jadeja In Hindi

Harsha Bhogle Shuts Down Trolls Who Criticised Him For Interviewing Ravindra Jadeja In Hindi: The third and decider ODI match between India and West Indies was a delight for the fans as Virat Kohli and his men sealed the series with a dramatic win over the West Indies by four wickets. The Indian batting line-up showed their brilliance and did what they do the best when they are asked to chase.


Chasing a mammoth total of 315 runs, the Indian openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul started things brilliantly with a 122-run partnership for the first wicket. After Rohit Sharma went back to pavilion after scoring 63 runs, Virat Kohli came and set the ground on fire. However, it was Ravindra Jadeja and Shardul Thakur who took team India to the winning sides.

After team India added another feather to their head, popular Indian commentator Harsha Bhogle interviewed Ravindra Jadeja and Shardul Thakur. Harsha Bhogle began the interview by asking Shardul Thakur about his ability to bat that stayed with him while chasing. Later he moved to Ravindra Jadeja and asked him a question as well. However, while interviewing Ravindra Jadeja, he used the Hindi language.


Ravindra Jadeja, however, answered in English and when Harsha noticed that Ravindra Jadeja is comfortable in answering in English, he immediately switched from Hindi to English.

But the netizens took this as an opportunity to troll the commentator. Netizens trolled him badly for interviewing Ravindra Jadeja in Hindi.

Here, check out the reactions of Twitterati on this:

Normally Harsha Bhogle ignores such trolls and questions but this time he chose to clear the air. He took to his twitter and wrote:

“Okay, since I have been flooded with responses on this…. In a post match presentation, you always go in the language the player is most comfortable in. I’ve known Jadeja for 10 yrs now and so began in his language. The moment he indicated he was good to go in English, I shifted”

Fortunately, there were many sensible replies as well. Many twitterati came out in support of Harsha Bhogle and took his side.
