Hardik Pandya apologises after facing criticism for sexist remarks on chat show

Rahul and Pandya receive show cause notice: Both the Indian cricketers have landed in trouble for their comments on a talk show.

The episode featuring Pandya and Rahul was aired on Sunday and was highly condemned by the viewers on the micro-blogging site. In the whole episode, he could not stop himself from boasting about womanizing and that did not go down well with the netizens.

The Committee of Administrators has issued a show cause notice to the pair, seeking an explanation within 24 hours regarding their comments on women on the talk show.

However, the BCCI is not impressed with this as one senior official said that his apology won't get this issue to an end and asked Hardik to understand the duties and responsibilities of an worldwide cricketer.

A source, close to the player, told PTI that Pandya was "drawn into making those comments as the show producers coaxed a carefree attitude" from him and Rahul.

Former BCCI GM (cricket operations) Ratnakar Shetty also expressed his disgust over the behavior of the two cricketers on Twitter.

A senior BCCI official told Hindustan Times that Haridik's comments revealed his attitude towards sensitive issues like respecting women and disregard for his responsibilities as an worldwide cricketer.

During one of the segment, Pandya said that he likes to watch how women move in a club. Cricket lovers urged the Indian Cricket Board to consider banning players from appearing on such chat shows.

Pandya was especially boastful of his encounters with women and narrated an incident from a party he visited with his parents.

Pandya had joined the team before the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne after recovering from a back injury which he had suffered during the Asia Cup in UAE previous year. He will be seen in action in the three-match One-Day International (ODI) series against Australia which starts on January 12 in Sydney.
