Pandya-Rahul controversy: BCCI members accuse CoA of 'double standards'

Twitter

Indian captain Virat Kohli has broken his silence on the controversial comments made by Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul during a TV show.

"Based on legal opinion and till the time the final procedure is laid down to address this issue, (I) will recommend that a communication be sent to the players concerned and the team immediately", Diana wrote in an email, accessed by IANS. Two cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul made their debut on KWK this past Sunday and their statements on women received a lot of backlash on social media.

The three-match ODI series will commence on Saturday and will end on January 18.

A tweet by Hotstar read, "Certain remarks / comments made by the guests on the episode 12 of Koffee with Karan may hurt the sentiments of our users / viewers".

Pandya, 25, and Rahul, 26, were speaking on popular celebrity talk show Koffee with Karan, which is hosted by Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar. The BCCI stated that both players had apologised, while Pandya also expressed remorse via his official Instagram account.

"You are just watching and observing how (women) move, as I said I am a little from the black side (influenced by West Indies culture) so I have to see how they move first", he said.

Pandya and Rahul's recent appearance on an Indian talk show, during which the former had detailed how he had bragged to his parents about losing his virginity, has created a storm in their homeland.

"We must take a view by the time second ODI gets over as we can not afford to debilitate team strength due to delinquent behaviour on the part of some player", Mr. Rai had written.

'Honestly, I got a bit carried away with the nature of the show. Ranveer's comments have left many people disappointed and angry on social media.

"We as the Indian cricket team and responsible cricketers do not support such views", Kohli said during the pre-match press conference in Sydney. The two cricketers will now return home immediately even though the team management wanted them to stay back. The BCCI will announce Friday whether it plans to ban or suspend them, which has delayed the announcement of India's squad for the first ODI against Australia, slated to take place Saturday in Sydney.
