OMG! BCCI opens up on punishing Hardik Pandya & KL Rahul for the recent controversy


XtraTime Web Desk:
India cricketers Hardik Pandya are in further trouble, as The Committee of Administrators (CoA) Chief Vinod Rai Thursday recommended a two-ODI ban on Hardik and Rahul for their controversial comments on women in a TV show but fellow COA member Diana Edulji has referred the matter to the BCCI’s legal cell.

Pandya’s comments, slammed as misogynistic and sexist, drew a lot of flak from all corners, prompting CoA to issue a show cause notice on Wednesday. The all-rounder, in response, said he was sincerely regretful and would not repeat the behaviour.

“I am not convinced with Hardik’s explanation and I have recommended a two-match ban for both players. However the final decision will be taken once Diana gives her go ahead,” Rai told PTI.

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