India vs Australia: Pandya & Rahul Suspended, Head Home to Face Inquiry

Open this

Recently, The show Koffee with Karan featured Team India stars KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya in which the young Indian lads talked on many topics ranging from how they spend their time off-field, romanticizing women and their personal life. After watching the episode, one can not help but notice the double standards when one expresses strong views on making the film industry safer and better and lending support to the #MeToo movement versus the unending silence to apparent sexism and misogyny. The cricketer apologized on social media and BCCI is seeking to take action against his questionable remarks.

On the show, Pandya had also boasted about getting intimate with multiple women.

Diana Edulji, a former India women's captain who is part of a Supreme Court appointed committee overseeing BCCI affairs, said on Friday that the duo should not play until an investigation is complete.

The CoA has taken on board the recommendation of the BCCI's legal team that Pandya and Rahul be suspended pending an inquiry.

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. Edulji had initially suggested a two-match suspension for the duo but referred the matter to the legal cell after Vinod Rai agreed with her and recommended the same.

"We as the Indian cricket team and responsible cricketers do not support such views", Kohli said during the pre-match press conference in Sydney.

"At a party, my parents asked me, 'Acha tera wala kaun sa hai [Which women are yours]? I'm little from the black side so I need to see how they move".

Hardik has since issued a statement on Twitter, where he said, "After reflecting on my comments on Koffee with Karan, I would like to apologise to everyone concerned who I may have hurt in any way". Honestly, I got a bit carried away with the nature of the show. "The BCCI did the right thing, and this is also the way forward. This one", pointing out the women he slept with and he further added that how his family was proud of him. "We are still waiting for a decision to be made".

"From the Indian cricket team's point of view, this changes nothing in our beliefs in the changing room, it does nothing to the spirit we have have been able to create".
