Controversy on commentator statement:
A Ranji match was held between Baroda and Karnataka at Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Two commentators were recognized as “Rajender Amarnath” and “Sunil Doshi”. During the commentary, they commented on something, which is unacceptable. Which became the reason for new controversy in cricket.
the commentator mentioned Sunil Gavaskar’s Hindi commentary he said, “I liked the fact that Sunil Gavaskar is commentating in Hindi and is giving his valuable inputs in the same language. I also loved it that he referred the dot ball as a Bindi ball”.
Then the other commentator started the controversy by saying, “Every Indian must know Hindi. This is our mother tongue. There is no bigger language than this”. According to the reports, BCCI commentator Sunil Doshi has given this statement.
Did this lunatic commentator just say “Every Indian should know Hindi” ? What on earth do you think you’re @BCCI ? Stop imposing Hindi and disseminating wrong messages. Kindly atone. Every Indian need not know Hindi #StopHindiImposition #RanjiTrophy #KARvBRD pic.twitter.com/thS57yyWJx

Most people in North India firmly believe that Hindi is our national language & those who don’t agree must go to Pakistan.
