Pandya Rahul showcaused BCCI considers barring players from non cricket shows

In the whole episode, he could not stop himself from boasting about womanizing and that did not go down well with the netizens.

The BCCI on Wednesday issued a show-cause notice to cricketers Hardik Pandiya and KL Rahul, seeking an explanation within 24 hours for their sexist and misogynist remarks on the Indian TV show Koffee With Karan.

For those who have come in late, a netizen listed down the objectionable statements made by Hardik on Koffee With Karan 6 and shared them on Twitter.

A source, close to the player, told PTI that Pandya was "drawn into making those comments as the show producers coaxed a carefree attitude" from him and Rahul. "They have given 24 hours to give an explanation", CoA chief Vinod Rai said.

While Hardik had apologised for his statements, saying he got "carried away by the nature" of the show, Rahul has not addressed the matter at hand as yet. In no way did I mean to disrespect or hurt anyone's sentiments.

After a furore on social media, Pandya took to Twitter to offer an apology in the morning. Meanwhile, his apology doesn't seem to amuse Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) officials, who have pointed out towards the need of an global cricketer to understand his duties. The two cricketers have fallen into trouble over the controversial remarks.

On Tuesday, the BCCI took note of Pandya's "crass and cringeworthy comments" on the chat show and the all-rounder had been informed about this.

Pandya, who has a reputation as a somewhat of a "Casanova", dished on his questionable approach to women before sparking the backlash.

Having mentioned that he felt West Indian in spirit earlier on the programme, Pandya answered a question about he approached women in night clubs in this way: "I like to watch and observe how they move". The viewers expressed that how they didn't like the way Pandya talked about women and his way of telling his parents about his sexual relationship.

A barrage of instant criticism started coming Pandya's way, prompting the Indian Cricket Board to consider banning players from appearing on such chat shows.

Pandya returned to the national squad after he suffered injury in a match between India and Pakistan in Asia Cup held in October a year ago.
