2-ODI Ban Recommended For Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul Over "Crass" Comments

11 January 2019

The CoA had issued a show-cause notice to Pandya and Rahul and gave them 24 hours to reply.

It's being reported that CoA decision on the 2 will be announced after Edulji, who has sought opinion of the BCCI acting president CK Khanna, acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary and treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry on banning the players, gives her nod.

For most of the show, it was Pandya, who issued an apology for the remarks called sexist and misogynistic, who took it upon himself to say the most outrageous things, mostly on women. In no way did I mean to disrespect or hurt anyone's sentiments. Rest assured, I hold the BCCI in highest regard and will exercise complete discretion and prudence to ensure that such incidents are never repeated in future. We waited for Pandya to realise his mistake before joining the bandwagon of "We Dislike Hardik Pandya".

Chaudhry raised concerns about the permissions taken by the players before appearing on the show, the disrepute it brought to other Indian cricketers and about how these comments leave them open to honeytraps that players are trained to avoid in ICC ACSU briefings. There should be a penalty?

Hardik had invited vast flak for his remarks on the show where he was seen boasting about casual hook-ups with multiple women. Very crass. No apology can cover it.

The caregiver was also incensed at the facility's staff, who she says should have noticed her gaining weight or missing periods. In 1998, the woman says she was pulled into a closed-door managers' meeting with then-CEO Bill Timmons.

From revealing that his parents ask him "acha tera wala (women) kaun sa hai (who is your interest here?) to conceding he likes observing the way women move, Hardik has received severe backlash for his comments. I'm a little from the black side so I need to see how they move".

"As far as the quantum of the punishment is concerned if the players are found guilty as per the procedures laid down in the Rules and Regulations, keeping in view the above factors and discussions, a two-match suspension seems to be merely a stop-gap arrangement especially considering that the CoA had banned Smith and Warner for a season".

Rai asked Johri to draft an appropriate instruction on Thursday since the players had sent their explanation. "Separately, please prepare an advisory to all BCCI contracted players and support staff", Rai's email read.

Three days after the celebrity chat show aired on January 6, the two cricketers on January 9, were issued show cause notices by the BCCI, which took note of the massive outrage on social media and elsewhere.
