IPL 2016, RPS vs RCB: Harsha Bhogle takes a dig at Mahendra Singh Dhoni after uncharacteristic knock

New Delhi: He may not have found place on Indian Premier League's commentary panel this term, but Harsha Bhogle has been closely following all the action in the middle.

Right through the tournament, the senior commentator has offered insights for followers of the game on social media and newspaper columns.

On Friday, Bhogle took at dig at Rising Pune Supergiants skipper MS Dhoni after he was dismissed for 41 off 38 balls.

Dhoni walked in to bat after Steve Smith's dismissal but was unable to finish the match for his side.

The wicketkeeper-batsman started off slowly and lost his wicket when it was time to go for the big hits.

Taking to social micro-blogging site Twitter, Bhogle wrote, "180+ run chase. 41 (38) can't win it for you. Some days it might come off but most days it won't from there."

Bhogle's serious cricket observation, was seen through the prism of the recent controversy involving him by most of his followers.

It is believed that Dhoni was unhappy with an Indian commentator during the ICC WT20. This was evident when he endorsed Amitabh Bachchan's remarks after India's 1-run win over Bangladesh.

While Bhogle's name was never mentioned, his sacking by the BCCI meant something was not right.
