According to sources it was stated that the ninth and final round of the Ranji Trophy 2019-20 season is currently in progress with karnataka facing Baroda in one of the matches at the Chinnaswamy stadium in Bengaluru. Reportedly the game is being streamed live on Hotstar at the moment and it is in the news for the wrong reasons.
Meanwhile the hindi commentators, during the game on thursday, insisted for every indian to know hindi and termed it as the mother tongue of every person in the country. Furthermore the statement hasn’t gone down well with a section of fans as they have criticised the commentators for the same. Apparently the incident took place during the seventh over of Baroda’s second innings when they started speaking about sunil gavaskar was commentating in hindi these days.
Moreover this is when one of the commentators went on to create the controversy by saying, “Hindustan mein har hindustani ko hindi chahiye. Ye humari maatru bhasha hai. Isse badi bhasha humare liye hai hi nahi.” (which roughly translates to In india every indian should know Hindi. It is our Mother tongue. No language is bigger than that for us).
