Hotstar pulls down Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul's Koffee With Karan episode

  • Hardik Pandya apologised for the comments he had made during his appearance on Koffee With Karan

The BCCI is yet to take a decision and will announce the verdict on the subject soon, with a 2-match suspension likely for Hardik and possibly just a warning for Rahul being the expected outcomes. The two are outseated from the first match.

Later, when Johan asked him why he doesn't ask for the names of women at nightclubs since he has trouble remembering them, Pandya replied: "I like to watch and observe how they move".

Taking to Twitter, Pandya posted, "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". He added, "Honestly, I got a bit carried away with the nature of the show".

Barely hours after Pandya's apology, BCCI handed the pair a show cause notice giving them 24 hours to explain their demeanour on the talk-show.

"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, as quoted by PTI.

According to the latest reports, it has also been inferred that the BCCI's Committee of Administrators (CoA) can suspend the two cricketers for their conduct on the show as well.

Arsenal's Ramsey set for Juventus medical on January 13
Ramsey will be the club's second highest paid player after Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo (€ 31 million per year). But Emery insists he still has a lot of respect for Ramsey.

However, the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India Constitution) was not satisfied.

"I am not convinced with Hardik's explanation and I have recommended a two-match ban for both players".

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

Pandya has since reportedly also apologised to head coach Ravi Shastri, and former Indian cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Terming the comments "inappropriate", the 30-year-old skipper said the belief in the dressing room is completely different from the individual comments of the two young players.

Johar pressed on throughout the episode, with one of his queries being how the Indian players decide if they happen to hit on the same woman. He said, "We, definitely, as the Indian cricket team do not support views like that and that has been communicated".
