Hardik Pandya served show cause notice after misogynist remark

Hardik Pandya served show cause notice after misogynist remark”

India cricket chiefs have ordered star all-rounder Hardik Pandya to explain "sexist" comments made on a TV chat show after the remarks sparked social media outrage and prompted the player to apologise.

The notice came just hours after Pandya apologised for his disrespectful statements on Twitter, saying he got "carried away by the nature" of the show, even blaming the producers for coaxing a carefree attitude from the players.

Rahul and Pandya receive show cause notice: Both the Indian cricketers have landed in trouble for their comments on a talk show. For, the BCCI (CoA) has sent them show cause notices after their conduct on Koffee With Karan 6 received severe backlash. Soon after realizing that things have not gone well among the fans on the social media, Hardik Pandya took to Twitter and issued an apology.

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. "They have been given 24 hours to give an explanation", chairman of the Committee of Administrators Vinod Rai told PTI. I think we need to give both of them a two-match suspension.

On the show, he had boasted about hooking up with multiple women and also how open he has been about it with his parents.

Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul recently appeared on the show "Koffee with Karan", the show which is famous for having bollywood celebrities and talking about their personal and professional life.

Calling his behaviour on the talk show "unacceptable" the official said that his apology was not enough to close the issue.

"He needs to understand the impact the utterances of an worldwide cricketer have in this country but more importantly he needs to learn how to differentiate between the right and the wrong".

The BCCI had on Tuesday taken note of his "crass and cringeworthy comments" on the chat show and had ticked him off.

A BCCI source also told PTI that the body was considering disallowing cricketers from appearing on shows unrelated to cricket.

Pandya is now with the Indian team in Australia and his response, released to a section of the media in Sydney, spoke of regrets.
