Diana Edulji recommends `suspension pending inquiry` against Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul

Twitter

Koffee with Karan Season 6's most talked about episode has been the latest one, which featured Indian cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul. "As a responsible platform, we have removed the episode from Hotstar with immediate effect".

And now the recent update on that front is that, Hardik Pandya may have to face two match ban wherein he wouldn't be allowed to perform for two of them. The incident has subsequently thrown their selection for the upcoming one-day worldwide (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.

The duo who were on a talk show were slammed for the misogynist comments made on the show and even the BCCI slapped KL and Pandya with a show cause notice.

He also took the opportunity to distance himself from the comments made by Pandya and Rahul. He added, "Honestly, I got a bit carried away with the nature of the show".

Indian cricket chiefs on Wednesday said the two players had been given 24 hours to explain themselves, with Pandya already posting an apology on social media.

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)?" In no way did I mean to disrespect or hurt anyone's sentiments.

Aaron Ramsey ignored Gareth Bale advice over Arsenal exit
The two enjoy a great relationship on and off the pitch and Real Madrid had made contact over a move, though Ramsey has elected to join Juve instead.

'Why don't you ask women's names at nightclubs?' asked Karan.

"I am a little from the black side, so I have to see how they move first".

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

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

Indian skipper Virat Kohli spoke out regarding the matter in the pre-match press conference ahead of India's first ODI against Australia in Sydney. Rahul has not yet reacted to the social media storm. He said, "We, definitely, as the Indian cricket team do not support views like that and that has been communicated".
