Hotstar removes KWK's Hardik Pandya-KL Rahul episode after the huge controversy

Share

Both Pandya and Rahul have been part of India's practice sessions in Sydney leading up to Saturday's first ODI.

On Thursday, Vinod Rai, Chairman of the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) had recommended a two-ODI ban on the duo but fellow member Diana Edulji had pushed for a legal opinion before deciding on the quantum of punishment.

Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh is livid at what Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul have said on the show.

According to reports, both the players have been dropped from the first one-day global (ODI) against Australia, which is scheduled to be played in Sydney Saturday. In response to a question on why he doesn't ask for the names of women at nightclubs since he has trouble remembering them, he had said, "I like to watch and observe how they (women) move".

Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, who has shared the dressing room with Hardik Pandya for Mumbai Indians, has slammed him for his comments on Koffee with Karan.

"Honestly, I got a bit carried away with the nature of the show".

The duo had made an appearance in a popular television talk show hosted by filmmaker Karan Johar during which they made several comments which were widely perceived to be sexist and vulgar. In no way did I mean to disrespect or hurt anyone's sentiments.

In the pre-match media interaction, India captain Virat Kohli condemned the comments made by Pandya and Rahul, calling them "inappropriate". From wearing the badge of a womaniser with all prowess and to his distasteful comments, Hardik Pandya brought shame to cricket community, but also millions of young people who looked up to him.

"The two concerned players felt what has gone wrong and they have understood the magnitude". They can't go out and say such things while pretending to be cool.

"We must take a view by the time second ODI gets over as we can not afford to debilitate team strength due to delinquent behaviour on the part of some player", Mr. Rai had written.

This latest controversy, coming immediately in the wake of India's triumph in the Test series in Australia, has once again split the BCCI and the CoA.

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