Harbhajan Singh and Sreesanth Reunite as Commentators: Former Indian cricketers Harbhajan Singh and Sreesanth have reunited as commentators for the upcoming 16th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2023. Both the players have had a controversial history when they played together during the early years of the IPL. However, it is heartening to see the duo move on from their past and come together to provide insights and commentary for the tournament.
The announcement of Harbhajan Singh and Sreesanth’s participation in the commentary team for IPL 2023 has generated immense excitement among fans. Star Sports, the official broadcaster of the tournament, released a video on social media platforms that showcased the two former cricketers along with Mohammad Kaif as part of their commentary team.
“Slap Gate” Incident During IPL 2008
Harbhajan and Sreesanth’s relationship had taken a sour turn after the infamous ‘slap gate’ incident during an IPL match in 2008. Harbhajan Singh, who played for the Mumbai Indians, allegedly slapped Sreesanth, who played for Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings), after a match. The incident sparked a massive controversy, and both players received bans and penalties from the BCCI.
However, in the video released by Star Sports, the two cricketers seemed to have put their differences aside and moved on. Fans have welcomed this news with open arms, and many are excited to see how the two will work together as commentators during the IPL matches.
Mohammad Kaif will also join Commentary Team
Apart from Harbhajan and Sreesanth, Mohammad Kaif, another former Indian cricketer, will also be part of the commentary team. Mohammad Kaif, known for his excellent fielding skills and sharp cricketing mind, is expected to provide insightful analysis during the IPL matches. The trio is expected to bring a fresh perspective to the commentary box and make the tournament even more enjoyable for fans.
The 2023 IPL promises to be an exciting tournament, with several new additions and changes made to the competition. One of the most significant changes is the introduction of the ‘impact player’ rule, which will allow each team to pick one player who will have a significant impact on the match’s outcome. This rule will make the tournament even more interesting and increase the competition’s intensity.
The addition of new players to each team is also something to look forward to during the IPL 2023. Several talented players have been included in the squads, and fans are excited to see how they will perform during the tournament.
Apart from the changes made to the tournament itself, the commentary team’s composition is also something that has generated immense excitement among fans. With the inclusion of Harbhajan Singh, Sreesanth, and Mohammad Kaif, the commentary team promises to provide excellent analysis, insights, and entertainment for the viewers.
