KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya have been the talk of the cricketing fraternity ever since their ‘Koffee With Karan’ episodes has been aired. So much, that the episode had to be taken off owing to the amount of controversy it had created.
While Hardik’s derogatory comments on women did not go down too well with the jury, many believed that KL should be forgiven considering he did not cross the line and did not open up too much like the all-rounder Hardik. In some breaking news coming in, while Hardik might face a ban for 2 games, maybe even more, KL Rahul might just be reprimanded and is likely to escape the ban.
Yes, KL did admit that he was partying till quite late before the T20 at Miami and was bragging about scoring a century the next day irrespective. While that’s not how the management would have preferred it to be, that’s still something forgivable if we compare it to what Hardik Pandya has said and the number of sentiments he has hurt.
Even the Indian Captain Virat Kohli in the latest press conference stated that the team is not in support of what the duo said and those were just individual opinions. The Captain also let everyone know that he and his team does not support those kinds of comments and never will either.
Meanwhile, the all-rounder recently issued an apology via the micro-blogging site Twitter but the Board is certainly in no mood to forgive him looking at the magnitude of the entire situation. If Hardik misses out, the left-handed all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja might come in and take his place in the playing XI. Meanwhile, the 2 teams are all set to clash on Saturday, 12th January at the Sydney Cricket Ground. It would be interesting to see how it shapes up and we will leave it to that.
