Dengue strikes again. After Shubhman Gill’s exclusion from the Afghanistan match due to Dengue, Harsha Bhogle became unavailable during the India vs Pakistan match. Gill may also not play in the match due to him still recovering from the illness. However, Harsha’s news is shocking. No one was expecting the voice of cricket from India to go absent like that.
Harsha broke the news on X (formerly known as Twitter). He said that he was disappointed to not be available on 14 October 2023. Harsha also thanked his colleagues and fellow commentators for their kindness and concerns.
The India vs Pakistan match is getting the same treatment as a tournament opener. People were shocked that ICC didn’t start the World Cup with this match. There wasn’t even a proper opening ceremony. However, there is going to be a proper opening ceremony. Amitabh Bachan, Sachin Tendulkar, and other Bollywood stars will be a part of this show.
However, the fans will miss Harsha Bhogle’s voice during this match. Harsha is a great cricket analyst, with commentary full of excitement and insights regarding the game. We will all miss him during the game.
