Cricket is an illustrious sport and while the battle mostly takes place on the pitch, the presenters and broadcasters also have their task cut out of making the game available to the audience in a crisp manner. Harsha Bhogle is one of the most renowned commentators in the country and most of the times, he can be seen chipping in with quirky lines to enthral the viewers on television.

He started his career as a commentator for All India Radio at the age of 19. In 1991-92, he became the first Indian commentator to be invited by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation during India’s cricket series prior to the 1992 Cricket World Cup. He hasn’t looked back ever since and has travelled the world for covering matches. The veteran turned 57 years today and wishes have poured in for the enigmatic personality.

Meanwhile, Rashid Khan, the Afghanistan wrist-spinner, didn’t miss out on the chance of wishing him on the auspicious occasion. He took to Twitter and wrote, “Wishing a very happy happy Birthday to one of my favourites commentator @bhogleharsha”.

Here is Rashid’s tweet

Rashid is currently playing for Sussex in England’s domestic T20 tournament where he has picked up five wickets thus far in four matches. His economy of 7.31 has been stupendous and batsmen have paid respect to the pugnacious potential. Sussex are placed second with three victories in South Group with three victories from four matches, below Kent, who also has as many wins from an equal number of games.

Their next match is against Kent at Canterbury on July 27. Rashid’s role is expected to play a massive part in their upcoming fixtures. Rashid was also selected to play for the St Lucia Stars in the upcoming edition of the Caribbean Premier League. He played for the Guyana Amazon Warriors last season and notched only 14 wickets in 12 matches and conceded runs at an economy of 5.82.
