Indian cricketer apologises for comments made on TV

"I have seen the remarks made by these two players on the show in print today".

India are scheduled to start a three-match ODI series against Australia from Saturday.

The chief of BCCI's Committee of Administrators (COA), Vinod Rai on Thursday made the suggestion for a ban from two ODIs.

There were some particular answers that did not go down too well with the mass. Hardik Pandya is facing heavy backlash on social media for remarks on women and his personal life that definitely left a bad taste in mouth.

"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", a copy of the response which is in PTI's possession read. Pandya opened up about his partying habits where he boasted about things like not asking the names of women at parties and watching them move on the dance among others.

"Diana has sought legal opinion whether the duo can be banned", Rai was quoted as saying.

"After reflecting on my comments on Koffee with Karan, I would like to apologise to everyone concerned who I may have hurt in any way", Pandya wrote on Twitter on Wednesday. He also took a dig at BCCI CEO Rahul Johri, who was cleared of sexual harassment charges but advised to undergo gender sensitisation by an inquiry committee.

The new guns of Indian Cricket Team, KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya, made their debut on the chat show. "The players must be immediately suspended pending a proper inquiry and must be allowed to join the team (if selected) only once they have gone through a proper sensitisation in addition to serving a ban, if imposed upon them".

There are reports that Edulji has also asked the opinions from the board's acting president CK Khanna, acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary, and treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry on the matter.

His statements were deemed as "crass and cringeworthy" prompting the BCCI to think about barring cricketers from appearing on "such non-cricket shows", a source said.

Rahul then went on to reveal how they both decide on who gets to date a girl when Karan Johar asked them what happens when both of them like a particular person?

Although BCCI top brass took the right call by demanding an explanation from the players, they have also reportedly questioned the need for players to make public appearances in non-sporting events or shows.
