‘I’m afraid I didn’t say that’ – Harsha Bhogle corrects Pakistan fan who tried to twist his words

Harsha Bhogle clarifies

Harsha Bhogle, fondly known as the voice of cricket is renowned for his great analysis of the sport despite never having played it on the highest level. Harsha’s personality and great knowledge of the sport make him a lovable character in the commentary box. Then again, it also leads fans to often twist his words to suit their agenda.

One such instance has come to light when Harsha Bhogle stepped in to correct a Pakistan supporter who misquote him on Twitter. The fan quoted Harsha praising Babar Azam and claimed that the veteran commentator hailed him as “currently the world’s best batsman” in a tweet.

Harsha Bhogle Said ” Babar Azam Captaincy gives stability to Pakistan Like Misbah, He is currently the World’s Best Batsman And His only Comparison is Shaheen at the World Stage And he Performs In a different role,” the fan’s tweet read.

Harsha Bhogle had to intervene after being grossly misquoted by the fan. He clarified that he feels Babar is Pakistan’s best batsman and definitely one of the best going around. Bhogle had been full of praise for the Pakistan skipper on-air as he had led the team to an undefeated streak as they enter the semifinals of the T20 World Cup.

Love watching him bat but I’m afraid I didn’t say that. I said he is “their best batsman….” in the context of what he brings to the side. I think he is in a group of three or four in the “best” category which is a great place to be in too,” Harsha clarified.

Pakistan has been on a roll at the ongoing T20 World Cup as they stormed into the semifinals following a dominant performance in the group stages. The Men in Green were unbeaten in their five group games which included comprehensive victories over the likes of India and New Zealand. Pakistan faces Australia next in the semifinals.
