From use of phrases like “Square cut kadte watt” and “Jhaande Jhulaate Dande laahte”, Punjabi commentary in the IPL 2023 has surely sent fans into a frenzy.
Since the start of IPL 2023, fans have been going berserk with excitement and there’s no sign of the hype around one of the greatest T20 tournaments dwindling. While the full-packed stadiums attest to the fans’ never-ending love for cricket, there’s something that has captured the attention of online fans this season – the commentary! Following the success of Bhojpuri commentary, Punjabi commentary has now emerged as a massive hit amongst the online community.
For those who have been following the Indian Premier League (IPL) from the comfort of their homes through Jio Cinema, the experience has been nothing short of thrilling. With viewers being able to stream the matches in 12 different languages, that is, English, Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati, Bhojpuri, Punjabi, Oriya, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada; they have been treated to a diverse range of commentary. For many, this has been an entirely new experience, as they have got to hear something other than the standard Hindi commentary.
While Bhojpuri initially emerged as a fan-favourite, the Punjabi commentary has since gained a large following. Punjabi-speaking fans have been particularly drawn to the commentators’ infectious enthusiasm and energy, which have brought an extra level of excitement to the games. No doubt, hearing the action called in their native tongue has only added to their enjoyment of the IPL.
From “Square cut kadte watt” and “Jhaande Jhulaate Dande laahte”, the use of localised metaphors by Punjabi commentators has surely sent fans into a frenzy.
