  • I didn’t mean to disrespect anyone Hardik Pandya apologises for comments on ‘Koffee with Karan

Indian Cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul recently appeared on Karan Johar's Koffee With Karan 6 and the two have fallen into trouble over their controversial remarks.

Noted cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle had urged the BCCI to sensitise young cricketers about 'life beyond the dressing room.' Bhogle's tweet said, "It is all very well to issue show-cause notices now to KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya".

The announcement came only a few hours after the 25-year-old Pandya posted his apology on social media.

"We have sent show-cause notices to Hardik Pandya and K. L. Rahul for their comments". The chairman of Committee of Administrators (CoA) Vinod Rai has recommended the two-match ban in consultation with the other member Diana Edulji but the latter is yet to give her go-ahead for the decision."I am not convinced with Hardik's explanation and I have recommended a two-match ban for both players".

He wrote, "After reflecting on my comments on Koffee with Karan, I would like to apologize to everyone concerned who I may have hurt in any way".

He also boasted of not asking women's names at parties and dished on bragging to his parents when he lost his virginity.

CBBC Newsround: Walking auto that could save lives
Hyundai has shown off a small model of a auto it says can activate robotic legs to walk at 3mph (5km/h) over rough terrain. Hyundai has been working on the concept with industrial design consultancy Sundberg-Ferar for three years.

"I made an appearance on the chat show where I have made certain statements without realising that these could be disrespectful and offend sensitivities of viewers for which I am sincerely regretful", stated Pandya's response, a copy of which is with PTI. Faced with growing outrage, the Indian cricket board, the BCCI, had issued a show cause notice to both the cricketers.

Rahul too made a few statement, that could be considered politically incorrect, but he did not "get carried away" like his teammate, supposedly the best friends in the Indian team.

A BCCI source also told PTI that the body was considering disallowing cricketers from appearing on shows unrelated to cricket. India retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and became the first Asian team to win a Test series in Australia. "I'm a little from the black side so I need to see how they move".

It is learnt Hardik Pandya was ticked off by the BCCI top brass after his comments were aired on television.

India are scheduled to start a three-match ODI series against Australia from Saturday.
