Adjust Comment Print

India all-rounder Hardik Pandya and opener KL Rahul were on Friday sent separate suspension notes by the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) on behalf of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for their misconduct on the chat show Koffee With Karan. He said that the public should not make too much of Hardik's comments as they were made on a lighter note with the intention of entertaining the audience. The episode became a subject of social media outrage and how!

"#KaranJohar, shame that you snared innocent young cricketers into your trap for TRPS. their future is at stake and the country has lost 2 players in the current series", an angry Twitter user commented.

On the show, Pandya boasted about hooking up with multiple women and spoke about how open he is with his parents, saying he had once told them after losing his virginity, "aaj mai kar ke aaya".

Hotstar has not issued a statement giving the reason for taking the episode off the air, but it has removed promotional pictures related to it from platforms such as Instagram.

CoA chairman Vinod Rai had earlier recommended a two-ODI ban for the duo but Diana made a decision to seek legal opinion before taking any action. "I'm little from the black side so I need to see how they move".

Another exchange that drew criticism was when KJo asked, "If you all hit on the same women, then how do you decide?". In no way did I mean to disrespect or hurt anyone's sentiments. Known to brew the coffee with celebrity gossips and revelations, the show has stooped a new low with its latest episode that had Indian cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul on the couch. If he comes and stands next to you at a party, would you like to stand next to him?

The legal team also advised that the BCCI chief executive, Johri, issued fresh communications/show-cause notices to the players, as the notices sent on January 9 didn't have the specifications that those were issued under Rule 41 of the BCCI Constitution and an inquiry against Pandya and Rahul has commenced.

"From the Indian cricket team point of view, any inappropriate comments that are made in that scenario are something that we definitely don't support.and that has been communicated (to the two players)", said Kohli.
