Edulji Recommends Suspension for Pandya, Rahul After Legal Opinion

Open this

Featuring Indian cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul, the now-deleted episode saw the former pass several demeaning remarks about women when the conversation turned to his love life. This one was aired two weeks ago, on December 30, 2018, whereas Hardik and Rahul's episode was supposed to be the first episode of this year on Koffee With Karan. The incident has subsequently thrown their selection for the upcoming one-day global (ODI) series against Australia into question with the Indian cricketing body, the BCCI, yet to decide on the two-match ban recommended by Vinod Rai, the chairman of the Committee of Administrators (CoA) that oversees such matters.

Michy Batshuayi Everton Bound?
Alemany's assessment heavily implies that Batshuayi will be moving to a different club on loan rather than returning to Chelsea. And it is now being reported by The Mirror that Everton are keen on signing the Belgian, who would cost around £14m.

On the show, Pandya boasted about hooking up with multiple women and spoke about how open he is with his parents, saying he had once told them after losing his virginity, "aaj mai kar ke aaya". "You are just watching and observing how they move as I said I am a little from the black side (influenced by West Indies culture) so I have to see how they (women) move first", he said. Honestly, I got a bit carried away with the nature of the show.

"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. India are scheduled to start a three-match ODI series against Australia from Saturday. He said, "We, definitely, as the Indian cricket team do not support views like that and that has been communicated". The duo faced major backlash on social media.
