Bhogle is quite easily the most successful and most famous non-cricketer in the cricket field. He started commentating at the age of 19 with All India Radio while living in Hyderabad.

In 1991/92, he became the first Indian commentator to be invited by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) during India’s cricket series before the 1992 Cricket World Cup. He continued his association with the BBC and did commentary during the 1996 and 1999 World Cups for the Australian broadcasting company.

During that stint in Australia in 1992, Bhogle was rated as the possessor of the “sexiest voice on radio” and in 1999 a poll on an independent website rated him the number one commentator for the season.
