After spending nearly a year away from the commentary box, one of the most popularly ringing voice in the cricket world, Harsha Bhogle is all set to return. The official broadcasters of the Indian Premier League, on Tuesday, hinted about Bhogle’s return in the forthcoming 10th edition of cash – rich tournament.

Prasana Krishnan, EVP and Business Head of Sony Pictures, India, said in Kolkata, “It’s our intention to get him back in the studio. However, we have some paperwork formalities left but in all likelihood, we may see him doing commentary in the upcoming IPL.”
“Harsha used to be with us in studios also for sometimes. This time we are hoping he will be back. It’s not fair for me to make a definitive comment but he will be part of the team. There are no hurdles, only a few formalities” – Krishnan said.

So once those ‘few formalities’ are done, Harsha Bhogle is all set to speak out in the ‘IPL Extra Innings’ show, a pre and post-match show broadcasted in Sony live.

“The way it works is, the main English commentary is produced by BCCI from the venue. Other languages and Extra Innings studio we do a separate broadcast. So, obviously because of the travel, logistics and different venues etc., it’s very difficult for a person who is there on the field to be available in studios for too many days” – said Krishnan.

The self-imposed exile of Harsha Bhogle occurred after some of his comments on Indian cricket team were not well received by BCCI as well as Indian team.
