When it comes to cricket, there can be none like Harsha Bhogle. The people who usually end up in the commentary box are former cricketers, their understanding of the game is a lot more basic. Harsha meanwhile, is a total outsider, having never played the game professionally. He is a commentator in the purest sense of the word. He is a die-hard cricket fan who says it as he sees it. His love and in-depth understanding of the game is quite well known. To topit all up, he is probably one of the most wittiest men around. Put all this together and you have all the ingredients of a legendary commentator.
