Ace cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul might have potentially ruined their blooming cricket career after their Koffee With Karan episode was released. The two young cricketers passed some really sexist and misogynistic comments that didn’t sit well with the audience. They are facing great backlash from the youth on the Internet and have found their careers in jeopardy.

Renowned Indian skipper Sunil Gavaskar has supported BCCI’s decision to ban KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya from the Indian cricket team. The BCCI has decided to send them back home from Australia where the Indian team is currently playing a three-match ODI series against Australia.

The cricketers’ comments on the show have brought disgrace to Indian cricket and the environment of the team’s dressing rooms. There are serious debates on whether cricketers should be allowed to be a part of such shows.

Apart from suspension, Hardik Pandya has also lost his brand endorsement contract with leading company Gillette. He has also apologized for his comments on the show and has tried to mend his reputation.

Pandya’s father, however, has tried to defend his son by saying he was only looking to entertain the audience. “I don’t think people should read too much into his comments. It was an entertainment show and his comments were made in a light-hearted manner. He was only looking to entertain the audience. So, it (comments) should not be viewed very seriously or negatively. He is an innocent boy with a very fun- loving nature,” Himanshu Pandya was quoted as saying by Mid-Day.
