Bollywood's superstar Amitabh Bachchan has been one of those people who has an interest in everything be it acting, literature or sports. He is quite active on his social media account and when he gets time, he talks to his fans by replying to their questions. Not only this even on different occasions the actor usually posts on his Twitter account and he similarly did what he does but this time, his fans have started bashing him for his post.
The 76-year-old actor after the Indian cricket team defeated South Africa by 28 runs in the 1st T20 international took to his Twitter account to talk about the team's victory but the second part of his tweet that talked about the biases of the commentators started getting attention on the social media.
The actor took a sly dig at the commentary of Harshi Bhogle through his tweet. He tweeted, “T 2619 - INDIA wins first T20 against SoAf .. brilliant play .. loved the aggression .. and loved the bias commentating .. keep doing that please ..coz' every time you do that we WIN handsomely !”

Earlier in the year 2016, Big B had slammed Harsha for doing a bad job as a commentator and had tweeted, “With all due respects, it would be really worthy of an Indian commentator to speak more about our players than others all the time.” After which Indian Cricketer, MS Dhoni too talked about the same leading to Harsha getting sacked by the BCCI.

But it seems as if the 'biased commentary' tweet of Sr. Bachchan did not go down well with his fans who started getting it from the fans. Check out how the Tweeple reacted:
Commentary have to be neutral. If you are pointing this to @bhogleharsha you are making a mistake. He is a tremendous commenter with adequate knowledge about the cricket. And most importantly he speaks brutal truth. #INDvsSA— Nitish™ (@nitishtweets) February 19, 2018
If your indication is towards @bhogleharsha then you need to work on your knowledge of the game.— burhan (@burhanqutub) February 18, 2018
Uncle Since ur a senior, u think u always have right to say anything about anyone. As usual You continue to spit venom about @bhogleharsha but he will remain one of the bestest commentator after Tony Greig.— Younus Mohammad (@Younus4frndz) February 18, 2018
It will be interesting to see how Bhogle will react to Big B's tweet!
