IPL 2024: MS Dhoni applauds Bhojpuri commentary; Suresh Raina shares insights, says, 'Bahut hi gajabe...'

Indian Premier League (IPL) boasts a plethora of commentators, each bringing their unique style and expertise to the cricketing extravaganza. Apart from the prominent international commentators, IPL also features regional commentators who provide commentary in various languages, such as Bhojpuri, Telugu, Tamil, Gujarati, and Bangla. 

In a recent conversation on JioCinema, Suresh Raina revealed MS Dhoni's reaction to Bhojpuri commentary. As per media reports, the Bhojpuri commentators include actor Ravi Kishan, alongside Mohd Saif, Shivam Singh, Satya Prakash, Gulam Hussain, Saurabh Kumar, Vishal Aditya Singh, Shalinee Singh, Sumit Kumar, Ashutosh Aman. 

When Suresh Raina, who was earlier seen assisting MS Dhoni as he was limping, was asked if MS was okay, he said, “Bilkul". 

Then, Suresh Raina, a long-time teammate of Mahi, revealed, “MS Dhoni was discussing Bhojpuri commentary. He said, ‘Bahut hi gajabe commentary kar rahe Bhojpuriya me.’ I told him Haryanvi is also nice."

Earlier, the Bhojpuri commentators were slammed for using double-meaning offensive language during the match between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), which was played at the Eden Gardens Kolkata on March 23. 

Users on X (formerly Twitter) slammed the Bhojpuri commentators for their double-meaning language while praising Heinrich Klaasen. Some called them disgusting, while some also demanded the commentators be sacked.

Meanwhile, on Sunday, the defending champions, Chennai Super Kings (CSK), emerged victorious by 20 runs in the match against Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Wankhede Stadium. During the match, with four balls to go, Dhoni arrived at the crease and hit three consecutive sixes off Hardik and then a couple to score 20 off 4 balls, with a strike rate of 500.00, setting Mumbai a target of 207. 

If Dhoni adds 40 more runs to his total in the next match, he will surpass AB de Villiers's record of 5,162 runs and become the sixth-highest run-scorer in IPL history. Dhoni currently has 5,121 runs in 255 matches.
