Harsha Bhogle 'Voice of Cricket' 

"What a bowl, what a bowler," Bhogle, who is regarded as the "Voice of Cricket" by fans, was heard as saying on-air. However, veteran India cricketer Dinesh Karthik poked fun at Bhogle for his "what a bowl, what a bowler" remark on Bumrah.

The hilarious conversation between the two has gone viral on social media. "Everywhere I see, I read 'what a ball, what a bowler," Karthik said on-air on the third day. "I see you're spending too much time on social media," Bhogle replied, drawing laughter from former England captain Eoin Morgan, who was also inside the commentary box.
