Cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle took to social media to express his gratitude as he completed 40 years of his career. In the post, he detailed how he started his stint with Doordarshan and how it shaped his life. Bhogle also shared a picture of a Doordarshan invite from 1983 that asked him to cover an ODI match between India and Pakistan.
“40 years ago today. My first ODI. Still remember that young man trying frantically to get opportunities. And a kind producer from DD-Hyd giving him this break. I sat on a roller the previous evening, in a simple t-shirt, doing the curtain raiser. And got two commentary stints the next day. Over the next 14 months, I got to do two more ODIs and a test match. Gratitude,” wrote Bhogle on Instagram. (Also Read: Peter Drury on Harsha Bhogle: I really admire his technical knowledge about cricket)
