The 'Voice of Indian Cricket' Harsha Bhogle has been winning the hearts of all the Cricket fans since nearly three decades by his outstanding commentary and for his good knowledge about the game. At the same time, he has also been at the receiving end as well on a few occasions. This time the veteran commentator decided to come with a new idea and expressed the same on social media. This is what he had to say.

Bhogle said on Twitter that he wished to have the term 'Mankading' removed and wanted to stick it to run-out as Vinoo Mankad was one of India's greatest cricketers and his family found it offensive as it was looked down on with disrespect. At the same time, the 57-year old also mentioned that one of World Cricket's biggest legends Sir Don Bradman had found nothing wrong with the way Mankad had run out Bill Brown.
