The famous cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle got into an outrageous situation on Twitter after his tweet was misunderstood by the Twitter users.
After Chennai Super Kings (CSK) won the thrilling first Qualifier game against Sunrisers Hyderabad by 2 wickets, Bhogle took Twitter to laud the game but the tweet turned against him. He tweeted, "From the headquarters of the film industry, come the finest scripts!! #Chennai. #CSK."
The game was played at Mumbai, the home of Bollywood and with such a nail-biting win, it looked no less than a movie. After the win Harsha, in his style, applauded the brilliant turn around in the game by Chennai which looked better than a movie script. But fans took it in other way and thought the cricket pundit is terming the game as fixed.
Harsha had to clarify his tweet. He quoted his own tweet and wrote, "Chill guys. When someone plays well we say "wow, what a script he is writing!". When a star plays well consistently we say "who writes his scripts!" And so, read this tweet as "wow, CSK, you are playing these matches better than anyone else"."

Bhogle might not have expected his tweet will be taken in a negative way. Being such a big name in cricket, he knows his responsibility and hence the 56-year-old decided to make his tweet understood.
Here is how fans got against him:

Deepak chahar's catch given out.What an irony?
Thats a polite way of saying that the match is fixed. You keep ur politeness with you. We fans won't mince words. It was fixed! One more no ball today. And using Carlos despite having Kaul and Bhuvi's overs left. This is heartbreaking— What's in a name???? (@paavambitch) May 22, 2018
