Koffee with Karan: Hotstar pulls down episode featuring Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul

Koffee with Karan: Hotstar pulls down episode featuring Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul

Readers may be aware that after the episode, Hardik Pandya received a lot of flak on social media from fans as well as other netizens for his comments on the show.

On the show, when the host Karan Johar asked the bowler, "Why don't you ask women's names at nightclubs?", he replied, "I like to watch and observe how they move".

However, the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India Constitution) was not satisfied.

Less than 24 hours before India takes on Australia in the first of three one day internationals at the SCG, the tourists' final XI remains unknown after two players were accused of making inappropriate comments about women on a TV chat show. BCCI said that Hardik has not been respectful and mindful to his responsibilities as an worldwide cricketer and had made extremely problematic statements on important issues like being respectful towards women. The incident has subsequently thrown their selection for the upcoming one-day global (ODI) series against Australia into question with the Indian cricketing body, the BCCI, yet to decide on the two-match ban recommended by Vinod Rai, the chairman of the Committee of Administrators (CoA) that oversees such matters.

"I have seen the remarks made by these two players on the show in print today". Further, a two-ODI match ban on the players by the CoA. "Very crass. No apology can cover it".

With the cricket and the entertainment industry analyzing the comments of Hardik on the show, we wonder what will be his future. "I think we need to give both of them a two-match suspension", Rai told IANS over email.

"But Cricket Australia banned them for one year for the disrepute they brought to the game".

With skipper Virat Kohli also distancing himself from the comments, it will now depend on the decision taken by the warring duo of Rai and Edulji based on this legal opinion.

The Indian cricketer also said that his family was cool with his sexual activities.

"The two concerned players have felt what has gone wrong and they have understood the magnitude of what's happened".
