Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul suspended over comments on ‘Koffee with Karan’

Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul suspended over comments on ‘Koffee with Karan’

Pandya bragged about his success with women and made other sexual remarks during the celebrity chat show broadcast last Sunday that sparked outrage on social media.

On the show, the two players spoke about the women they had been with, with Pandya revealing details about how he picks up women at bars.

Even though the availability of Pandya and Rahul for the ODI series against Australia will be dependent on the decision yet to be taken by the BCCI, Virat Kohli remains unperturbed as the Indian team has a replacement in Ravindra Jadeja.

The Committee of Administrators (CoA) asked the pair to explain the comments and Pandya apologised but after considering their reply, the BCCI chose to charged both players for misconduct and indiscipline.

With less than 24 hours before the first match of a three-game one-day series, it is hardly an ideal preparation for the tourists.

He also shared that he openly identifies the women he sleeps with to his parents: "At a party my parents asked me acha tera wala (women) kaun sa hai (Which are your women)?"

"We are all waiting for a decision from the board and from there on we can understand what needs to be done about the situation", Kohli told reporters.

After the match he was optimistic of a bigger and better year around. "If I was one of the top seeds, I'd be a bit anxious about him next week".

"I like to watch and observe how they (women) move".

Following intense criticism, Pandya had issued an apology in social media although Rahul is yet to come up with his reaction.

"We as the Indian cricket team and responsible cricketers do not support such views", Kohli said ahead of the first ODI against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) here.

"I'm little from the black side so I need to see how they move", Pandya said in response to host Karan Johar's question about why he doesn't ask women their names at bars. "The two concerned players felt what has gone wrong and they have understood the magnitude of what's happened". They can't go out and say such things while pretending to be cool.

"Definitely not going to dampen anything that we've achieved", he said.

Pandya has apologised for his remarks, saying he got "carried away by the nature" of the show. In no way did I mean to disrespect or hurt anyone's sentiments.
