New Delhi: Harsha Bhogle's ouster from the Indian Premier League commentary panel is the latest controversy to rock the Indian cricket board.
The senior commentator received plenty of support from fans and followers as news of his contract termination first emerged.
One of the remarks made by an admirer on micro-blogging site Twitter has now opened a new can of worms.
As Harsha expressed his disappointment at not being part of IPL 9, one of his followers posted the following reply: "commentary without Harsha is like a pizza without exotic toppings.. Miss the attention to detail."

Harsha went on to retweet that comment. Though retweets are not endorsements, this act of Bhogle 'amused' his fellow commentary colleague Sanjay Manjrekar.
The former Indian cricketer, who happens to be part of the IPL 9 commentary team, had this to say about Harsha's rather interesting retweet.
Quite amused Harsha retweeted that the current IPL commentary team is like a pizza without toppings.

While the duo have shared cordial relations during several years of working in the media, one wonders whether this retweet from Bhogle offended Manjrekar.
