Shrenu Parikh takes a dig at Hardik Pandya for his sexist remarks?

The respect for cricketers in our country is enormous and even foreign players say the reverence for the sport and its sportsmen is something else in our country.

Recently, The show Koffee with Karan featured Team India stars KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya in which the young Indian lads talked on many topics ranging from how they spend their time off-field, romanticizing women and their personal life.

The severe aftermath of the same is that the duo has been ruled out from India's first ODI against Australia at Sydney to be played tomorrow. Two cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul made their debut on KWK this past Sunday and their statements on women received a lot of backlash on social media.

CoA Chairman Vinod Rai had earlier recommended a two-ODI ban for them but Diana made a decision to seek legal opinion before taking any action. While sportsmen having a high testosterone level can be understood such racist, sexist and misogynistic comments were highly disturbing.

The length of their suspensions is not known, but the duo look set to miss the one-day worldwide series in Australia, starting today, and the limited-overs tour of New Zealand.

'Honestly, I got a bit carried away with the nature of the show.

"After reflecting on my comments on Koffee with Karan, I would like to apologise to everyone concerned who I may have hurt in any way", Pandya said on Twitter. "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", he wrote in his response, which is in PTI's possession.

Pandya also said he had bragged to his parents after losing his virginity.

As a part of the show, they were asked several questions by Karan, and Hardik was seen boasting about sending the same texts to multiple women and hooking up with multiple women.

".We definitely don't align with those views and those are purely individual views".

However, the skipper insisted that the dressing room morale won't be affected by the controversy after the historic high of a maiden Test series triumph in Australia.

"Definitely not going to dampen anything that we've achieved", he said.
