Hardik Pandya has been in the news for all the wrong reasons in the recent past. Well, to be honest, he deserved all the flak he has received owing to the kind of comments he made, especially about the women which have been a part of his life so far.
While the BCCI has already sent a notice to both Pandya and KL Rahul and has given them 24 hours to respond, the all-rounder immediately came up with an apology via his twitter handle and let everyone know that he meant no harm. The problem for him though is the fact that the damage has already been done and he has been receiving backlash from the entire nation.
Like it often happens in life, his family, most importantly his father has come to his rescue and has requested everyone to not make a huge deal out of this. In a recent Interview Hardik Pandya’s father, Himanshu Pandya stated that ‘Koffee With Karan’ was a talk show and all the comments were made in a light-hearted manner which should not be taken seriously. He further added that Hardik made those comments just to entertain the audience and termed him to be an otherwise innocent fun-loving boy.
While it’s normal for a parent to support his son, two wrongs never make a right. We wish Himanshu Pandya would have issued an apology on the behalf of his son instead or maybe at-least admitted that his son was wrong. Mistakes can happen by anyone, especially on Nationa Television but those who accept it, try and change it and move on with life are the ones who further succeed.
Meanwhile, India and Australia have set a date for Saturday, 12th of January where the 2 teams meet each other in the first ODI and it would be interesting to see who wins the first one.
