IPL 2023 will start on March 31st. Gujarat Titans will take on Chennai Super Kings in the first game of the tournament. Recently, Star Sports confirmed the panel of commentators for the tournament. Here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted as Harsha Bhogle will not be a commentator in Star Sports on TV for IPL 2023.
It will be a fight between Star Sports and Jio Cinema
From IPL 2023, it will be a different option for the fans when it comes to TV and digital streaming. While Star Sports will continue to telecast the tournament on TV, it will be Viacom 18’s JioCinema that will live stream the competition on digital space.
Already, the two giants have started the banter with their promotional content. Since the fans of this era demand a wholesome experience, it will also be a fight between these two media companies to bring on board some of the best in the business of broadcasting. JioCinema made an early move, hiring the likes of Aakash Chopra and even Harsha Bhogle has joined them. Star Sports, too, has some popular names such as Sunil Gavaskar, and Sanjay Manjrekar amongst others. While MS Dhoni is promoting JioCinema, Virat Kohli is doing it for Star Sports. Therefore, there seems to be a healthy competition in this arena. Fans will only hope that this will give them the best experience of watching the IPL.
