Vinod Rai recommends 2-ODI ban for Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul

The popular app Hotstar has officially removed the controversial episode of the latest season of Koffee with Karan on Januray 10, 2019 which consisted of an exclusive interaction with the Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul.

The backlash is so severe that even Hotstar, the digital streaming platform that aired the episode, has pulled it down following the controversy.

And now the recent update on that front is that, Hardik Pandya may have to face two match ban wherein he wouldn't be allowed to perform for two of them.

The comments were labelled "very crass" by the chairman of the country's highest cricketing body, Vinod Rai, who has called for a two-match ban for the two players.

The comments made by Rahul and Pandya were unanimously deemed to be "sexist" and "misogynistic".

CoA member, Diana Edulji said, "It will be imperative that the players (Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul) be put under suspension till a further course of action is decided for this misconduct as was done in the case of CEO when he was sent on leave in the sexual harassment matter".

"At a party, my parents asked me, 'Acha tera wala kaun sa hai [Which women are yours]?"

'Why don't you ask women's names at nightclubs?' asked Karan.

"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.

"The two concerned players have felt what has gone wrong and they have understood the magnitude of what's happened".

Pandya has since reportedly also apologised to head coach Ravi Shastri, and former Indian cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Rahul has not yet reacted to the social media storm. Virat Kohli-led India are set to take on Aaron Finch's Australia in a three-match ODI series, starting with the first match in Sydney on Saturday.

"Yesterday, and some time before that as well, we have all been waiting for a decision by the board". He said, "We, definitely, as the Indian cricket team do not support views like that and that has been communicated".
