After making misogynistic and sexist comments on Karan Johar’s chat show, Koffee With Karan, cricketers Hardik Pandya and K L Rahul is in trouble. They have been slammed repeatedly not only by common people but by their own team mates also.
BCCI suspended them immediately from the Australia Test Series, that was going on back then. Even they were replaced in the upcoming ODI against New Zealand too. Their suspension is indefinite.
CoA chief Vinod Rai and member Diana Edulji, even subtly mentioned that maybe they won’t be there to play the World Cup also. For a player this is a huge setback.
Hardik Pandya was even seen, taking to twitter to apologize for his comments, but it didn’t go well with the BCCI. Even cricketers like Sunil Gaveskar and Harbhajan Singh labelled his comments as inappropriate.
Hardik Pandya even lost a brand endorsement deal with Gillette. His association with brands and especially cricket is now being questioned from all the spheres.
Recently, netizens are questioning Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul’s association with their respective IPL teams as well. People are demanding actions from their respective IPL franchise as well.
Check what twitter has to say on this.

Will their respective IPL teams penalise Rahul and Hardik? @harbhajan_singh thinks they will. Have to wait and see what happens.

We must ask why would you ban Hardik Padya and KL Rahul from playing ODIs rather they should be banned from playing IPL matches.. that would be justice.. as i fee IPL have got lot to do with these generation cricketing superstars' attitude.. #HardikPandya #KoffeeWithKaranSeason6
