Amitabh Bachchan expresses joy after India’s T20I win, disappointed over biased commentary
Legendary Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan is a frequent user of micro-blogging website Twitter. He expresses his joy and grief with his apt tweets.
Interestingly, the Social media is one of the most powerful tools in the world at the moment. People use distinct platforms to express their views to the world. Celebrities in the current scenario use the platform to interact with their fans.
Bachchan is an ardent follower of the game of cricket. However, he feels great joy whenever India wins any international match.
It was the same when India thrash hosts South Africa in the first Twenty20 International match in Johannesburg by 28 runs. India continued their domination over the home side in the ongoing tour of the Rainbow nation.
The Bollywood actor did express his joy after the Indian team won the match. He also showed his disappointment over the biased approach of the commentators.
India won the first T20 quite convincingly on Sunday (February).
Bachchan took this as an opportunity to sarcastically accuse the commentary panel of favouring South Africans.
He Tweeted, “T 2619 – INDIA wins first T20 against SoAf .. brilliant play .. loved the aggression .. and loved the bias commentating .. keep doing that please ..coz’ every time you do that we WIN handsomely !”

This is not the first time that Amitabh Bachchan has shown his disappointment over biasness of commentators. During the 2016 World T20, he accused an Indian commentator, supposedly Harsha Bhogle, of being more inclined towards the foreign players.
Bhogle was also sacked by the BCCI from their commentary panel. Many feel that Bachchan’s Tweet was the one which rubbed salt to Bhogle’s wounds.
Here’s what he Tweeted, “T 2184 – With all due respects, it would be really worthy of an Indian commentator to speak more about our players than others all the time.”
