One of the most loved and popular cricket commentators, Harsha Bhogle, is all set to make a return to the sets of Indian Premier League (IPL). This time though, the 55-year-old IIM alumnus will be seen analysing the game in Hindi.

The news of Harsha’s return was shared by him on microblogging site Twitter. 

Mujhe batate hui badi prasannata ho rahi hai ke is saal main #IPL2017 me SET Max par Hindi samalochak ke roop mein aapse baatchit karoonga (I am pleased to inform you that this year I will be on SET Max for the IPL. I will be doing commentary in Hindi),” he tweeted.

Harsha is making a comeback to the commentary box almost after a gap of one year. His name from the list of commentators was excluded last year following a rift with the erstwhile BCCI administration.

Earlier, there were reports that Harsha had been excluded from the list of commentators for the tenth edition of the tournament. The list of 20 commentators released by the BCCI, which is dominated by Australians, did not include his name. 

It later emerged that Harsha would be in the Hindi commentary box this time around.

The list of English commentators for this edition of the IPL is: Sanjay Manjrekar, Scott Styris, Ravi Shastri, Pommie Mbangwa, Sunil Gavaskar, Simon Doull, L Siva, Anjum Chopra, D Morrison, Isa Guha, Michael Hussey, Lisa Sthalekar, Matthew Hayden, Melanie Jones, Micheal Clarke, Murali Kartik, Brett Lee, Kevin Pietersen, Brendon Julien and Daren Ganga.
