Shocked! Ranil commentated in many of Bangladesh's matches including the very recent Pakistan series, and did a very decent job at it. May God bless his soul.

Not the greatest commentator in the world, but a really nice guy - and tried hard to point out positives even amidst a shambolic performance.

Shocking News. RIP Ranil.

In recent years, he was the commentator for every BD series. Looked humble and polite.
