  1. Hardik Pandya is known to be one of the more flamboyant cricketers to represent Team India in international matches. He is considered to be a fashion icon, one of the better all-rounders the roster boasts and a vital cog of the squad as far as the ICC Menâs T20 World Cup 2020 is concerned. On September 22, 2019, India were playing their final T20I against South Africa in Bengaluru when the cricketer complained of lower back issues. The medical staff of the Indian cricket board (BCCI) consulted a panel of England-based spine specialists who recommended surgery for âa long-term solutionâ of this issue, according to the statement released by the organisation. Pandya underwent the successful operation on October 4, 2019 and was scheduled to begin his rehabilitation soon. âSurgery done successfully. Extremely grateful to everyone for your wishes. Will be back in no time! Till then miss me,â Pandya captioned a post on his Instagram account. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@hardikpandya93) Pandya then went on to make good on other aspects of his life. He proposed to marry his girlfriend NataÅ¡a StankoviÄ and got engaged. He then started uploading videos of doing pilates and bowling and batting sessions in the nets regularly. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@hardikpandya93) Last month, a day after India made a historic comeback in the ODI series against Aaron Finchâs Australian side to win the second and third matches, the BCCI announced that Pandya was unfit for the upcoming New Zealand series. Given the severity of the surgery, it was understandable. Then news came that Pandya was selected for the India âAâ team, which was to compete against New Zealand XI only to confirm that he was ruled out due to not recovering completely. Less than a week ago, BCCI bossman Sourav Ganguly later confirmed that Pandya was not even fit enough to compete in domestic cricket. According to Ganguly, the 26-year-old was at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru and was working on getting his back better. And yet Pandya was made to take a fitness test for the upcoming Test series against the Blackcaps. Hardik Pandya ruled out of the Test Series against New Zealand #HardikPandya | https://t.co/cdRhWJtTxn â LatestLY (@latestly) February 1, 2020 The constant shift in Pandyaâs timeline to recovery only begs the question: why is the BCCI in such a hurry to make him return to the field? Sure, he is one of the best all-rounders we have and it is important for Pandya to get some miles under his feet ahead of the T20 World Cup, but we still have over eight months between today and the first match India is going to play during the tournament in Australia. Also, it is not as if the Men in Blue are struggling without the Baroda-born by their side. Ever since Pandya went out with the injury in September, India have played against six teams in 23 matches (including all formats of the game) and have won 19 of them. Lower back injuries are never easy to recover from. When Pandya was contemplating surgery, the doctors made it clear that he would not be able to return to his usual self until 3-4 months since the day of operation. It is wrong to expect Pandya to play his kind of cricket before this season of the Indian Premier League. Instead of making him go through fitness tests and hurrying his comeback, the BCCI should give him time to recover at his own pace. View the full article

  3. Hardik Pandya has rang in new year in style as he proposed to his lady love going on his knees and she said "yes". They are both engaged now. The cricketer took to his Instagram account recently to announce his engagement to Serbian actress Natasa Stankovic. The couple welcomed their new year with a ferry ride in Dubai. “Mai tera, Tu meri jaane, saara Hindustan. 01.01.2020 #engaged," Hardik Pandya wrote as a caption for his post. View this post on Instagram Mai tera, Tu meri jaane, saara Hindustan. ð«ð 01.01.2020 â¤ï¸ #engaged A post shared by Hardik Pandya (@hardikpandya93) on Jan 1, 2020 at 4:02am PST Hardik has surely stumped everyone by announcing his engagement on the first day of 2020 and it was followed by a lot of memes on Twitter. Some users poked fun at him for the statement he said at a popular chat show Koffee With Karan hosted by Karan Johar. It is a direct reference to Hardik's controversial comment on the talk-show where he said that when he lost his virginity, he came back and told his parents, "Aaj karke aaya." He received a lot of flak for this comment.

Meanwhile, Hardik has been recovering from a lower back injury that kept him away from international cricket since September 2019. View the full article
  4. Ever since making his debut in 2016, Hardik Pandya has proved to be a vital cog in the new era of Indian setup. The 25-year-old has been key to Team India's balance across formats. While Pandya's capabilities with the ball allow India to enjoy an additional cushion in the bowling department, his artistry with the willow adds depth to the batting line-up. Often labelled as the new-age Kapil Dev, Pandya might have been integral to Team India's plans, but playing more matches has also taken a toll on his body. The Mumbai Indians star has struggled with injuries in the past which have often kept him away from the cricket field. He last featured in the three-match T20I series against South Africa where he aggravated his back injury. Surgery done successfully 𥳠Extremely grateful to everyone for your wishes â£ï¸ Will be back in no time! Till then miss me ð pic.twitter.com/XrsB8bWQ35 — hardik pandya (@hardikpandya7) October 5, 2019 Owing to his fragile health conditions, the all-rounder was not picked in the Indian squad for the recently-concluded three-match Test series against South Africa at home. And, in a bid to overcome his condition, Pandya, last month, underwent a successful lower back surgery, in the United Kingdom, performed by the same doctor who treated him during India's tour of England in 2018 and the 2019 World Cup. Since then, while the likes of his Team India teammates are busy preparing for the home tour against visiting Bangladesh, Pandya appears to be making the most of his time nursing his injury away from the field. The Indian allrounder has been in constant touch with his fans through social media posts where he left everyone nostalgic with a throwback picture. Miss this little one (and the big guy too) ⤠pic.twitter.com/Fsl8s0m68L — hardik pandya (@hardikpandya7) November 2, 2019 Taking to Twitter, on 2nd November, Pandya shared a picture of himself in the company of former Indian captain MS Dhoni and his daughter Ziva as the trio appeared to be take a stroll on the streets overseas. If the photo enticed the cricket fans, Pandya's sweet caption left everyone nostalgic. "Miss this little one (and the big guy too)," Pandya captioned the tweet.

(@PUJATIWARY7) November 2, 2019 Ever since, coming agonisingly close to powering India into the ICC World Cup final in England & Wales, Dhoni has been under scanner as the chants of his retirement continue to grow stronger. The Jharkhand cricketer was expected to call time on his career after India's ouster at the World Cup, but, more than three months later, there is still no word on it. Taking a sabbatical from the game after the ICC spectacle, Dhoni was expected to return to action at the start of India's home season but the veteran campaigner is yet to don the iconic 'Blue' jersey again. He missed the T20I series against South Africa and is more than likely to miss the upcoming series against Bangladesh. Recent media reports have also suggested that the Indian selectors have decided to move on from Dhoni, keeping in mind the next year's World T20 in Australia. With no clarity on Dhoni's future, everyone is confused whether they'll see 'Captain Cool' donning national colours again. View the full article
  5. As a member of the Indian cricket team this World Cup, Hardik Pandya is living the dream and could not have asked for a better beginning to the tournament, as the Men in Blue are currently unbeaten and are looking like one of the top contenders for the world championship. Individually, as the bowling all-rounder of the Bleed Blue army, Pandya walks to the pitch as a finisher, looking to hit longer shots in order to put up bigger totals on the board. Due to the presence of excellent talent in the departments of pacers and spinners, Pandya acts as a between-the-spell bowler who is good enough to hold his own against the best hitters of the ongoing tournament. He is also trying to bring a lot of variation to his deliveries which seemed to work against Pakistan on Sunday. Pandya has time and again shared his desire to bring home the World Cup trophy based on his hard work and dedication. “On 14th July, I want to have the Cup in my hand,” the 25-year-old had said in an interview with the International Cricket Council (ICC). His excitement towards the World Cup is clear as day. You can see it in his celebrations, his interviews and his bling! In a video recently put up by the official Twitter handle of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Hardik Pandya showed off his extremely shiny jewellery during a bus ride, presumably to Hampshire where the Men in Blue will take on Afghanistan on 22 June 2019 at the Rose Bowl Cricket Ground. In a segment called 'Chahal TV', that has become extremely famous in the past couple of months, Indian spinner Yuzvendra Chahal interviews his teammates and talks about all kinds of things in a personalised manner. In this episode of the segment, Chahal makes us take a closer look at Pandya's all-diamond bling which includes multiple necklaces with bat and ball-shaped pendants and a massive ring, also made of diamonds. Always been an explorer when it comes to fashion and style, Pandya had a sense of pride in his voice while he was describing the precious jewels to Chahal.

  6. It has been more than two years since the Men in Blue lost by a massive 180 margin to Sarfaraz Ahmed's Pakistan cricket team in the final of the 2017 edition of Champions Trophy which took place at The Oval in London. Considered to be the most dominating force in the world of international cricket, Virat Kohli's boys were being viewed as the tournament favourites and were expected to take home the title for a record third time. But the Pakistan side were focused and had come to lift the trophy. After losing the toss, Pakistan were asked to bat first and thanks to some brilliant innings played by openers Fakhar Zaman (114) and Azhar Ali (59), their team total mounted up to 338 in 50 overs. On the other hand, bowler Mohammad Amir dismissed the best batsmen of the Indian side in Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli, while Dhoni was dismissed by Hasan Ali. © Reuters Under such circumstances, when India desperately needed someone to control the bleeding and score big runs, all-rounder Hardik Pandya entered the field and was nearly successful in turning around the game in favour of his team. Hitting four 4's and six 6's during his innings, Pandya scored 76 runs off just 43 balls. However, a tiny miscommunication between Pandya and teammate Ravindra Jadeja led to the extremely unfortunate dismissal of the in-form batsman. In the 27th over, both batsmen came out of the crease for a single but Jadeja quickly turned his back on Pandya and saved himself, leaving Pandya in the middle of the pitch with Mohammad Hafeez running him out. This led to a fuming Pandya being forced to exit the field, visibly upset at his teammate. “When you are in that situation, nothing goes through your mind. That time it was just anger because I was in the zone… I went into the dressing room and started throwing things.” Pandya admits in the video interview with the International Cricket Council (ICC). “I went to 'Jaddu' and said 'I am extremely sorry. It was not intentional, no matter what happened, I am not that guy'.” “He is kind of a chill person who doesn't take a lot of pressure on himself,” Ravindra Jadeja praised Pandya in the same video. “He is kind of a rockstar, I would say.” It is such a camaraderie between the members of the Indian cricket team, one of the most effective and powerful sides in international cricket, that continues to bring in success for them.
  7. For someone who was in the eye of the storm after his controversial appearance on 'Koffee With Karan', Hardik Pandya didn't just endure one of the toughest phases of his life, but seems to have returned to the field with better focus and rediscovered determination. While his controversial remarks about women on the chat show are still not forgotten, Pandya continues to do what he does best - enthral fans on the field. The ongoing season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has been a notable example of how clinical Pandya has been. A vital cog in the Mumbai Indians (MI) setup, Pandya, despite batting lower down the order, is third in the list of leading run-getters for his side (only behind the likes of Quinton de Kock and Rohit Sharma). In the bowling department, Pandya has claimed 14 scalps for Mumbai this season. He is currently placed third in the list of leading wicket-takers for Mumbai, only behind Jasprit Bumrah (17) and Lasith Malinga (15). But, despite his consistent performances in the ongoing edition, Pandya continues to be targeted by trolls on social media. View this post on Instagram Mere Bhai Jaisa Koi Hard ich Nahi Hai ð¤ð» . . . . #brotherfromanothermother A post shared by ðð§ð®ð¨ð©ð¡ð ð¿'ð¨ð¤ðªð¯ð (@krystledsouza) on May 4, 2019 at 12:12am PDT In a recent incident, the 25-year-old was attacked by an Instagram user who tried to troll the Indian cricketer with a racist jibe. Television star Krystle D'Souza recently met the Indian all-rounder in a Mumbai pub and clicked a photo with Pandya. Later, she shared their picture on Instagram with the caption: "Mere bhai jaisa koi hard ich nahi hai". While some Instagram users reminded D'Souza of Pandya's sexist comments on 'Koffee With Karan', one individual, in particular, named Sameer, took it too far in his remark on the post. Targeting Pandya, the Instagram user posted: "Kaalu bhai. Aap West Indies team ke world cup squad main select kyun nahi huye?". As soon as the racist jibe appeared in the comments section, a lot of Instagram users and cricket fans slammed the individual for his distasteful remark. Actor Aparshakti Khurana told the user, identified as Sameer: "I think you should not write such comments and definitely not use such language. We all love Hardik because he is a performer. You should rather encourage the Indian team, especially before the World Cup." © Instagram/@hardikpandya93 "That's so well put! People are so mean and obnoxious and just because they are sitting behind a screen typing, they think they can get away with anything! I guess ignorance is bliss in this case! Their words make no difference to his superb performance... BUT thank you," Krystle also commented on Aparshakti's reaction. "thank you so much Apar for supporting Hardik and loving him! People should be against RACISM and support team India and @hardikpandya93 before World Cup and IPL finale! We all love you @hardikpandya93," wrote another user. "I mean he has done so much for India and definitely will do so much more. @sameer_3101 u have no right to say something like this to anyone. U really failed as an Indian citizen," commented zenu_zainabkhan. © Instagram/@krystledsouza "Even I don't like Hardik Pandya.. but I hv my own reasons.. & being dark is NOT one of them.. you hv no right to say this about anyone...??," said another user. Following his brilliant run in the IPL, Pandya will be expected to carry on his fine form into the ICC World Cup where Team India will surely need his services, as they aim to conquer the coveted title for the third time.
  8. The 2019 season of the Indian Premier League has to be special and unforgettable for both, the former West Indies ODI hero, Kieron Pollard and the young and eccentric, Hardik Pandya, both of whom found themselves hitting long shots on a regular basis in the ongoing month and a half long tournament. While playing for the same franchise, Pollard and Pandya, and Mumbai Indians, have been loyal to each other through the thick and thins of the team's 12-year-long journey and have reaped the benefits of being a part of the most successful IPL team with three championships (tied with MS Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings). © Twitter/IPL And while this season has not been MI's best, they are still on their way to qualifying for the top four spot of the IPL playoffs by winning 7 of their 12 matches and a total of 14 points in their hands and it is safe to say that on a lot of occasions, the MIPaltan needed some superhuman performances to get out of trouble and the duo of Pandya and Pollard got to work, especially in the death overs. “Even when he came onto the scene, if you remember, in a couple of games for Mumbai (Indians), he finished off with his big hits. He is a small guy but hits the ball a long way. And once he continues to practice well and continues to evolve as a cricketer, you can see him doing great things not only for Mumbai Indians but (also for) Indian cricket,” the Windies legend praised a 25-year-old Hardik Pandya. © Twitter/IPL Pandya, who was in a bit of a fix ahead of the league began as he suffered from a stiff lower back and a life-time of humiliation for his comments at a popular talk-show, has finally collated enough courage to go out there and let his bat do the talking. “It is matter (sic) of him having the confidence and you giving him the confidence for him to believe in himself, because he is one of those guys who is free-spirited and just goes out and tries to use his youthful exuberance to have an impact on the game,” said Pollard, who has been by Pandya's side for ages now.
  9. Earlier this year, Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul had found themselves in a troublesome situation after appearing on popular television show 'Koffee With Karan'. The sexist comments, mainly by Pandya, on the chat show had stirred up a massive controversy which eventually led to the suspensions of the two cricketers, pending an inquiry. While Hardik was majorly responsible (owing to his remarks about women) for the controversy, Rahul also paid the price of being there in the company of the Baroda cricketer. Though the investigation in their conduct on the show is still ongoing, the controversy has pretty much died down following the unconditional apologies from the two cricketers. But, it appears that the cricket fans are still hung on to it. On 10th April, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) were looking to build on their triumph over Mumbai Indians (MI) earlier in the Indian Premier League (IPL) this season, when they visited the hallowed Wankhede stadium. A strong top-order batting performance was the recipe of their success at the PCA stadium and it, once again, allowed them to push the hosts on the backfoot early on. MUST WATCH : KL Rahul's majestic ton at Wankhede Full video here â¶ï¸â¶ï¸https://t.co/rCA01DMVxp #MIvKXIP pic.twitter.com/8zSt2Cg5pz — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 10, 2019 A 116-run opening stand between Rahul and Chris Gayle got Punjab to a flyer. While Gayle lost his wicket to Krunal Pandya after scoring a 36-ball 63, Rahul continued his carnage and remained unbeaten at 64-ball 100 - his maiden ton in the IPL. The KXIP opener was batting on 69 when Hardik came in to bowl the penultimate over - something that later became the talking point amongst fans on social media. The right-hander extended his arms beautifully and smashed the first ball over extra cover for a six. Hardik tried to outfox Rahul with a slower ball on the next delivery, but the batsman sent it over the in-field for a four. ð¯ð¤ð @klrahul11 #MIvKXIP pic.twitter.com/e21T74PecY — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 10, 2019 Put under pressure with early boundaries in the over, Hardik decided to use the short ball on the third delivery, but couldn't stop Rahul from hooking it over fine leg for another six. The fourth delivery, once again, went for a six as Rahul hammered the slower ball back over Hardik's head and over the ropes. Another six on the first and a couple on the fourth delivery of Jasprit Bumrah's final over saw Rahul notching up his first IPL hundred. While Rahul's heroics eventually went in vain as Mumbai defeated Punjab by three wickets, his bashing of Hardik (23 runs in 5 balls) surely got the fans excited on the social media. While some called it revenge for 'Koffee With Karan' scandal, others deemed it a befitting punishment for Hardik.

  10. Mahendra Singh Dhoni is credited for many things in cricket. His leadership skills allowed India to scale new heights in international cricket. Dhoni's unorthodox glovework has become a case study for budding wicket-keepers. And, needless to mention, his famous 'helicopter shot' has now become a trademark amongst batsmen. We've seen a few batsmen in the past repeating Dhoni's trademark shot. Whether it was Rashid Khan, Prithvi Shaw or Rishabh Pant, everyone appears to be busy emulating Dhoni on the field. And, Hardik Pandya isn't far behind. This is how Hardik Pandya got the helicopter to land in Wankhede against CSK #IPL2019 #IPLT20 #IPL12 #MI #HardikPandya #CSK #OneFamily (Video Courtesy: Hardik Pandya Instagram Page) pic.twitter.com/ofIfv6qmXk — CricFit (@CricFit) April 3, 2019 The 25-year-old, who had earlier shared a video of himself practicing the iconic stroke, officially joined the bandwagon after successfully pulling off the 'helicopter shot' against a team led by none other Dhoni himself during the 2019 Indian Premier League (IPL) clash between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Mumbai Indians (MI) on 3rd April. Twitter/@IPL Coming in to bat in the 17th over, Pandya showed signs of aggression on the first delivery of the penultimate over after he smashed Shardul Thakur for a six over square leg. Then, after Kieron Pollard hammered Bravo for a six on the third delivery, Pandya gave Mumbai a final flourish by scoring 16 runs (6,4 and 6) off the final three balls. M15: MI vs CSK – Hardik Pandya Six https://t.co/GjfmMNB7va via @ipl — Dixit Bhargav (@dixitbhargav09) April 3, 2019 He helicoptered Bravo's yorker into the top tier - something Dhoni would have also enjoyed from behind the stumps - on the fourth delivery. Then, he punched a drive through extra cover for a boundary. And, finally, slashing a fuller delivery over third man to finish with a six. A staggering 29 runs came off Bravo's final over with Pandya finishing at an 8-ball 25 alongside Pollard's 7-ball 17. While Pandya played some brilliant strokes, his version of Dhoni's 'helicopter shot' undoubtedly captured the imagination of cricket fans on the social media.

  11. For a team that was leading 2-0, Team India was given a reality check as Australia didn't just fight back, but eventually went on to record a historic One-Day International (ODI) series win following a decisive 35-run triumph in the final game in Delhi. Chasing a target of 273 runs, the star-studded Indian team was bowled out for 237 runs at the Feroz Shah Kotla. The middle-order woes of the Indian team, once again, came back to haunt the hosts as the likes of Virat Kohli (20), Rishabh Pant (16) and Vijay Shankar (16) and even Ravindra Jadeja (0) failed to aid their side. The ODI series loss undoubtedly left the home fans fuming, especially at a time when Team India is being touted as a top contender for the ICC World Cup in England & Wales. However, at a time when a shocking ODI series loss has dampened the mood in the Indian camp, Hardik Pandya seems to have given the home fans something to cheer for. Guess my inspiration behind this shot? ð ð pic.twitter.com/9mwQ6uNg3g — hardik pandya (@hardikpandya7) March 14, 2019 Taking to Twitter, Pandya shared a video of himself where he is seen batting in nets. And, as he gears up to face a delivery, the Mumbai Indians all-rounder was seen emulating MS Dhoni as he pulled off a brilliant 'Helicopter shot' in the training session. Seeking the fans' opinion, Pandya captioned the video: "Guess my inspiration behind this shot?" While Pandya wasn't part of the recently-concluded ODI series against Australia, the 25-year-old will be eager to make his mark in the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) where he'll play a pivotal role in Mumbai Indians' title challenge this year.

  12. The history of Indian cricket was seen numerous spinners come and go. While some etched their names in the history books with brilliant performances, others quietly faded into the shadows. Similarly, the modern era of the sport has witnessed the rise of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal who've pipped the likes of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja as India's premier spinners. While Kuldeep has impressed everyone across formats, Chahal, too, has proved his mettle in limited-overs cricket. But, such has been the competition in the spin bowling department that another spinner Mayank Markande - who has proved his mettle in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and domestic cricket - was handed his debut in the first Twenty20 International (T20I) against Australia in Visakhapatnam. But, while fans were eager to see Markande in action in international cricket, the inclusion of Krunal Pandya irked former Indian cricketer and commentator Sanjay Manjrekar. Just to give you a little perspective on Krunal Pandya as a pure spinner in T20Is. Kuldeep - Eco- 6.72 Avg -12.97 Chahal - Eco - 7.90 Avg - 19.93 Krunal - Eco - 8.72 Avg -31.40 Krunal weakens India's bowling.#INDvsAUS — Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) February 24, 2019 Ahead of the clash, Manjrekar took to Twitter and questioned Krunal's inclusion on the basis of his statistics as a pure spinner in the shortest format. Comparing his economy rate and bowling average with Kuldeep and Chahal, Manjrekar went on to claim that Krunal actually weakens India's bowling. While everyone is entitled to their respective opinions, Manjrekar's analysis of Krunal who has played a comparatively lesser number of games than Kuldeep and Chahal didn't really make sense. More importantly, for a cricket pundit of his repute, slamming an upcoming all-rounder on the basis of a senseless stat, was never going to go down well the fans. While cricket fans had already begun training their guns at Manjrekar for his analysis, Krunal's bowling performance in the match, a few hours later, further served as a befitting reply for the former Indian cricketer. Making Manjrekar eat his words, Krunal recorded impressive figures of 1-17 in his quota of four overs wherein he didn't concede a single boundary or six. Let's compare on IPL stage to level the field - Chahal - Eco. - 7.7 Avg. - 25.2 Kuldeep - Eco. - 8.22 Avg. - 24.51 Krunal - Eco. - 7.12 Avg. - 28.2 No point making unbiased comparison and discrediting the bowlers. pic.twitter.com/bRm2cBxzGm — Aditya (@rathodaditya95) February 25, 2019 When compared with the other two spinners, while Krunal recorded an economy rate of 4.25 (second to only Jasprit Bumrah in the match), Chahal and Markande both conceded over 7 runs an over. It's needless to say that in a match, that the Indian bowlers had little to play with, Krunal was almost as effective as Bumrah sans the number of wickets. That's a very irrational comparison since there's a mammoth of a difference between the matches played by these three- Chahal - 40 Kuldeep - 18 Krunal - 10 Given more time, there's plenty of scope for Krunal to improve the figures. He's shown his worth time and again with ball! — Aditya (@rathodaditya95) February 25, 2019 In fact, Glenn Maxwell - whose 56-run innings paved way for Australia's three-wicket win - also highlighted how difficult it was to face Krunal and Bumrah in the middle. "Krunal and Bumrah were extremely hard to get away. I decided to target other players like Chahal. I was trying to hit another six (on his dismissal), but it was a poor bat swing, I'll make amends in the next game,” Maxwell said after the game. And he bowled better than the other spinners todayð — Rajkumar (@im_rajkumar_95) February 24, 2019 4 over 17 run and 1 wkt. — KedarHirve (@KedarHirve) February 24, 2019 U gotta give him some time Mister!!

Next you will start giving opinion about sportspersons based purely on their hairstyle. — Simon Robin (@simon_robin) February 24, 2019 Unfair on Krunal. Can't judge him on his stats when the sample size is so small. — Nish Navalkar (@YUVI_NISH) February 25, 2019 Completely irrelevant stats because Krunal obviously doesn't play as a 'pure' spinner. You can't measure allrounder contributions by leaving out half of their skill set. Secondly, if stats mattered above all else, it makes no sense to back Pant despite his limited overs stats. — Eamon Lahiri (@TheSimianFreud) February 24, 2019 Has done more than good job today ð — Masud Asmat (@Masud96) February 24, 2019 You have this habit of targeting an individual every series! R Jadeja was your target down under and now it is Krunal. BTW he has the best economy rate after 15 overs in the innings — Pannkaj Neeraj (@pannkajneeraj) February 24, 2019 He is surely a better cricketer than you — Devansh Desai (@DevanshDesai125) February 25, 2019
  13. After serving a brief suspension over his objectionable comments on a popular chat show, Hardik Pandya has returned to the Indian team with better focus and more determination. Thriving in the role of an allrounder, the Baroda cricketer has adequately aided the Indian team during their recent tour of New Zealand. However, during the third and decisive third Twenty20 International (T20I) at the Seddon Park in Hamilton, the Indian cricketer was seen struggling with the ball. The right-arm seamer was clobbered all around the park, conceding 47 runs in his quota of four overs. He was India's second most expensive bowler after his brother Krunal (0-54) on the day. When it came to his batting, Pandya couldn't do much to rescue his team from a four-run loss. With his side in desperate need of some power-hitting, the 25-year-old was promoted up the order but couldn't make it count as he departed after a 11-ball 21. If his outing in the third T20I got him frustrated, Pandya further became the subject of criticism after a young Indian fan asked him an interesting question while cheering for the visitors in the stands during the second T20I at the Eden Park in Auckland. give this lady a Bharat Ratnaððð#INDvNZ pic.twitter.com/PQA8KtGNFB — Sunil- The cricketer (@1sInto2s) February 8, 2019 Dressed in India's iconic blue jersey, a young girl was seen holding a placard that read: "Pandya Aaj Karke Aaya Kya?" - a dig at Pandya's remarks during his appearance on 'Koffee With Karan'.

  14. After overcoming his suspension in lieu of his objectionable comments on 'Koffee With Karan', Hardik Pandya has returned to the Indian cricket team with better focus and more determination. The Indian all-rounder claimed two crucial wickets on his return during the third One-Day International (ODI) against New Zealand, and then followed it up with six wickets and 65 runs in his next four international matches. In the first Twenty20 International (T20I) against New Zealand, Hardik stuttered with the ball, going for 51 runs in four overs - becoming the most expensive Indian bowler in the shortest format against the Kiwis. But, then, Hardik wasn't the only one who got whacked that day, pretty much, every bowler did. View this post on Instagram Some food and lots of laugh ð @mahi7781 @shubmangill @kedarjadhavofficial @krunalpandya_official A post shared by Hardik Pandya (@hardikpandya93) on Feb 5, 2019 at 6:31pm PST Following India's comprehensive defeat at the Westpac stadium, Hardik was seen chilling out with his teammates in a much-needed break. The Baroda cricketer shared a photo of himself alongside his brother Krunal, MS Dhoni, Shubman Gill and Kedar Jadhav. "Some food and lots of laugh ?? @mahi7781 @shubmangill @kedarjadhavofficial @krunalpandya_official," Hardik captioned the picture on Instagram. But, the social media trolls were quick to take a dig at the Indian cricketer and reminded him of his nightmarish episode on 'Koffee With Karan'. While some advised him to order 'coffee', others, once again, slammed him for his sexist remarks on the popular chat show. An Instagram user wrote: "Koffee Lelo Bhai", while another one posted: "Aaj main bina kare aaya". There was another comment: "You're disgusting wonder how people live with an obnoxious sh*t like you", which highlighted that people are still angry at the Indian cricketer. While Hardik might take a while to strike a chord with fans again, he will be required to pull up his socks when India takes on New Zealand in the second T20I - a must-win clash for the visitors to stay alive in the three-match series - at Eden Park in Auckland on 8th February.
  15. Ever since his triumphant return to international cricket after a severe lower-back injury and a suspension levied by the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI), Hardik Pandya has been responding to his haters in the best way possible, i.e; by performing at an exceptional level with the bat and the ball. As a crucial member of the Indian batting order, Pandya, who has been known for his explosive big hits and mounting up big individual totals in very short periods of time, just hit a hat-trick of sixes against New Zealand's Todd Astle in the fifth and final ODI of the series. Pandya achieved this feat for the fifth time in his career. On the other hand, taking at least one wicket in almost every match he has played ever since his comeback against the Kiwis in the third ODI, Pandya has been one of India's ace bowlers through the last couple of weeks. However, the New Zealand team that lost to the Men in Blue 1-4 in the ODI series, looks completely different as the other series in the T20I format began today. Skipper Kane Williamson 's decision to replace opener Martin Guptill with Tim Seifert turned out to be a hit as the righty thrashed the Indian bowling side left, right and centre. The rest of the Kiwi batters followed suit and dominated bowlers like Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Khaleel Ahmed. Having said that, the bowler who got absolutely dismantled by Seifert and Co. was Indian allrounder, Hardik Pandya. With an absolutely horrible economy rate of 12.75, Pandya turned out to be the most expensive bowler for skipper Rohit Sharma, conceding 51 runs in just 4 overs! Pandya's half a ton with the ball is the worst performance by any Indian bowler against the Kiwis. whenever nz batsmen see hardik pandya#INDvNZ pic.twitter.com/vVz8PrmYux — 㤠㤠㤠㤠㤠㤠㤠ã¤ã¤ 㤠㤠㤠(@firkiii) February 6, 2019 * Hardik Pandya in First T/20 against NZ * #INDvNZ pic.twitter.com/82U9IwMzKX — Hunà¤à¤°à¤° â (@nickhunterr) February 6, 2019 Brilliant innings from Hardik Pandya ( 50 runs) and Khaleel(48) 2 short of 50 hard luck . #NZvIND — #FAN (@Sarcastic__Raj) February 6, 2019 Glad to see Hardik Pandya scored 50.. #INDVSNZ #NZvIND #INDvNZ — Silly me (@Sathish03577169) February 6, 2019
  16. After what is considered to be one of the greatest comebacks in cricket, Hardik Pandya is here, making a statement and hungry for runs and wickets as he returns from a lower-back injury which he suffered in September 2018 and a suspension for the notorious comments he made on the popular talk show 'Koffee with Karan'. In a heroic return against Kane Williamson's New Zealand in the third ODI, Pandya displayed his greatness as a fielder when he evoked his inner Superman to take Williamson's catch at the mid-on to send the skipper back to the locker room. Pandya also proved his brilliance as a bowler against the Kiwis as he scalped two wickets in the third and fifth match while having a moderate economy rate in the fourth. Finally, the allrounder let the elite batsman in him take over when he wreaked havoc all over the New Zealand bowlers including the in-form pacer Trent Boult, as he thrashed their deliveries left and right to go out of the field and into the stands. However, Pandya's highlight came in the 47th over when he drubbed leg-spinner Todd Astle for three consecutive maximums all around Westpac Stadium. Make no mistake, this isn't the first time Pandya has gone 6-6-6 against the bowlers to become the Devil of their dreams. Here are the five times Hardik Pandya hit a hat-trick of sixes in his career: 1. Vs Pakistan - ICC Champions Trophy 2017 (Group Stage) After Yuvraj Singh was called out for an LBW appeal by Hasan Ali, Pandya entered the field to play alongside skipper Virat Kohli and when Pak captain Sarfraz Ahmed chose left-arm spinner Imad Wasim to deliver against Pandya, he knew this one could be big. 2. Vs Pakistan - ICC Champions Trophy 2017 (Final) This time against Pakistan, Pandya reached the pitch in crisis with six wickets falling before the score of 80 for India. In a failed attempt to bring home the Champions trophy, Pandya humbled Pak leg-spinner Shadab Khan with three straight sixes in the 19th over. This performance also led to Pandya making the fastest half-century in a world ODI final. 3. Vs Sri Lanka - Test Series 2017 (3rd Test) In the third of the three-Test series against Sri Lanka, Pandya decided to play the longest format of the game in a hurry and welcome debutant Sri Lankan bowler Malinda Pushpakumara in a grand gesture. Starting the over with back-to-back 4s, the batsman determined to step it up a little with three consecutive sixes after that, while finally ending the over with a dot, making it the most number of runs scored by an Indian in an over. Pushpakumara to Pandya, 26 runs from the over! pic.twitter.com/QeOgWxBvd6 — Cricking (@CricKingApp) August 13, 2017 4. Vs Australia - ODI Series 2017 (1st ODI) Sending Aussie spinner Adam Zampa for three sixes one after another earned Pandya the name of 'Excitement Machine' by Cricket Australia during the first ODI at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Pandya's 83-run innings helped India win the match by 26 runs (DLS method). 5. Vs New Zealand - ODI Series 2019 (5th ODI) And finally, Pandya made a return to his batting ways with a bang against Kane Williamson and the rest of the Kiwis, as he absolutely ripped apart Todd Astle's bowling going 6-6-6 in the 47th over to help Kohli's Indian cricket team win the series 4-1.
  17. Swearing by living life king size, Hardik Pandya's beliefs and ideology find expression in his brutal hitting in the middle order and brisk seam bowling. Ever since making his international debut in 2016, Pandya has established his reputation as one of the most effective allrounders in modern-day cricket. A vital cog in the Indian line-up, Pandya's exploits on the field also earned him comparisons with the great Kapil Dev, as many labelled him as the country's next big allrounder. But, for a cricketer who was busy rising through the ranks, Pandya came across his worst nightmare earlier this month when his demeanour on a popular chat show sparked nationwide outrage. There was a lot of backlash, filled with expletives, on social media. Fans and former cricketers all combined in slamming the youngster for his remarks on the chat show. Then, there was a suspension from the Board of Cricket for Control in India (BCCI) that forced him to return from Australia where his teammates were busy etching their name in the history books. © Instagram/hardikpandya93 Falling from grace, Pandya was disappointed, sad and alone. Pandya was cornered and left to face the demons on his own as he shut himself at home. While there is no doubt that it was Pandya's own doing, but, let's be honest, people have committed worse crimes (if his is one) than him. He's just 25 and his remarks, arguably, shouldn't overshadow his capabilities, especially after being punished enough. With his back against the wall, Pandya had a sigh of relief after the Indian cricket board ended his suspension and asked him to join the team in New Zealand. But, none really cared as Pandya's comments about women still echoed on the social media with the fans still not ready to move on from the controversy. Taking the field at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui, Pandya had a point to make. He seemed possessed to right his wrong, win back his fans and remind everyone how crucial he is for this Indian team. When you're pushed back against the wall, the only way is forward. And, that's exactly how Pandya saw his return to the Indian team in the 3rd ODI against New Zealand. © AP Unfazed by the criticism levelled against him, the Baroda cricketer delivered impressive figures of 2-45 in his bowling spell and choked the run flow during the middle overs. He bowled 37 dot balls, more than any of his teammates, and conceded just three boundaries as India romped their way to a seven-wicket win that also sealed the five-match series in their favour. If his bowling performance impressed everyone, Pandya's determination to make a strong return was also in full display in his fielding efforts during the game. In fact, the young gun helped his teammate Yuzvendra Chahal in getting a wicket on the back of a sensational catch. Hardik pandya come back super catch pic.twitter.com/Bl83rckpO8 — Kanai Kumar (@KanaiKumar9) January 28, 2019 In the 17th over of New Zealand's innings, skipper Kane Williamson chipped down the track to hit Chahal's delivery towards deep midwicket. While Williamson was looking to whip the ball off his pads through to the boundary ropes, an alert Pandya - who was fielding at midwicket - produced an acrobatic effort, diving to his left and pulling off an absolute blinder, to send the opposition captain packing. That was a fielder's wicket, absolutely stunning catch from Hardik Pandya. #NZvInd — Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) January 28, 2019 Though he didn't get a chance to showcase his power-hitting with the willow, Pandya, still, had his effect on the game - thanks to his majestic bowling and electric fielding. After enduring all the hate lately, Pandya, with a positive body language, looked determined to make the most of the opportunity and eager to contribute to his team's requirements.
  18. Rewinding time is not possible, but 'do-overs' are. Not many get an opportunity to right their wrong. But Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul have got one where they can win over the fans with a good performance on the field. After being suspended for their misdemeanour on the popular chat show 'Koffee With Karan', the duo finally had some good news as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) lifted their respective bans with immediate effect. In its press release, BCCI claimed: “Hardik Pandya will be sent to New Zealand to join the team at the earliest and KL Rahul will join the India A squad to play the last 3 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) against England Lions.” It was a much-needed step, as finalising the Indian Team's squad for the World Cup is the need of the hour. Hardik Pandya being a handy batting allrounder, can provide good depth in the batting unit and can prove to be an asset in the pace department for the team. With Virat Kohli out for the last two ODIs and the T20I series, along with Vijay Shankar not being able to cement his position in the team, the bets of Pandya making the cut for India's playing XI are really high. © Reuters And to be honest, Kohli in his past interviews has always talked about strengthening his pace attack by having three pacers. Pandya's presence would bolster the pace attack, easing the pressure on the likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami. On the other hand, getting some game-time with the India A squad, KL Rahul can surely use the opportunity to rediscover his lost form and probably return to the national team just in time for the ICC mega event in England. © Reuters Following their nightmarish experience that lasted a bit longer than one would have expected, these two youngsters can now focus on their game in a bid to reclaim the love and trust of the fans.
  19. After nearly a month of public humiliation and hate speeches by cricketers and fans alike, which eventually led to massive self-loathing by Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul for their juvenile comments at Bollywood director and actor Karan Johar's talkshow, Koffee With Karan, the Board of Cricket Control in India or BCCI's Committee of Administration, has finally decided to lift the ban on the young stars of the Indian cricket team on Thursday. © Instagram "The Committee of Administrators ("CoA") had, by emails dated 11.01.2019, and in exercise of Rule 41(6) of the Constitution of BCCI, suspended Mr. Hardik Pandya and Mr. K.L. Rahul in view of the allegations of misconduct against them, pending adjudication of the allegations under Rule 46 of the approved BCCI Constitution," the CoA said in a press release. "Since the adjudication of all allegations of misconduct against any cricketer registered with, inter alia, the BCCI is required to be undertaken by the BCCI Ombudsman, whose appointment is pending directions of the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India, the CoA is the of the view that the interim suspension orders dated 11.01.2019 should be presently lifted with immediate effect. "The above matter and decision has been taken with the concurrence of the Learned Amicus Curiae, Mr. P.S. Narasimha. In view of the above, the suspension orders dated 11.01.2019 is immediately lifted pending appointment and adjudication of the allegations by the BCCI Ombudsman," the release said. With the ban now lifted, pacer Hardik Pandya has now been asked to join the Men in Blue for the ongoing ODI series in New Zealand which India lead 1-0 following a brilliant bowling attack by Mohammed Shami and Kuldeep Yadav. ICYMI: India all-rounder Hardik Pandya will join the side on their ongoing #NZvIND tour. DETAILS â¬ï¸https://t.co/5MQdubt3w8 pic.twitter.com/nR3nd1T9RY — ICC (@ICC) January 25, 2019 KL Rahul, who was going through a major struggle on the crease even before the ban took place, during the Border-Gavaskar Test series in Australia, has also been given the opportunity to regain his confidence by joining Rishabh Pant in the India A squad, scheduled to take on the England Lions in a three-game one-dayers in Trivandrum. Karan Johar on the other hand showed his relief upon hearing the fortunate news for the two of India's finest. "I am so happy to hear that the ban has been lifted. I am so relieved and grateful. They deserved another chance. I am glad that the Board has given them this chance," Johar expressed as reported by The Times of India. Whatever the duo said during the show was wrong, there are no two ways about it but, they have paid for more than what they had bargained for during their banned-stint in India. What is of essence is the fact that both Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul are exceptional cricketers and their presence in the Indian roster for the upcoming 2019 ICC World Cup may be crucial.
  20. A chat show which is supposed to entertain the audience ended up leaving a bitter taste for all the fans of 'Koffee With Karan'. When Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul made their much hyped, much awaited appearance on KJo's show, fans were eager to see some bromance and hear some dressing room secrets of the men in blue. However, the comments and remarks made by cricketer Hardik Pandya were regarded as sexist, misogynistic and plain tasteless in nature. Hardik Pandya : When i lost my virginity, i told them, "Mai Aj kar kay aya ho" pic.twitter.com/6HfX0zRWHy — Thakur (@ThakurHassam) January 6, 2019 This is just an iota of the confidence that was shown by Hardik on the show which upset the viewers to a limit that only did BCCI had to take action against them and impose a ban, but the episode had to be pulled down as well. Amidst this wave of controversy, the host himself was mum for quite a while until recently when he opened up on the episode and issued his own apology for the same. Karan Johar breaks his silence for the 1st time post Hardik Pandya & KL Rahul controversy on his #KoffeeWithKaran show. Full interview #ComingUp only on ET NOW. Stay tuned! #Davos @karanjohar @SupriyaShrinate @hardikpandya7 @klrahul11 #WEF2019 @wef pic.twitter.com/HERG69Jq5r — ET NOW (@ETNOWlive) January 23, 2019 Karan clearly mentioned that he regrets what happened to the boys and justified that how anyone associated with the episode had nothing to complain about it but being a responsible person, he wanted to share his two cents on it. The controversy cost the boys a ban from the India-Australia series which they were initially supposed to play. Even though Hardik issued an apology on social media, people were actually done with his thoughts.
  21. Earlier this month, Hardik Pandya stirred up a massive storm after his objectionable remarks on the popular chat show 'Koffee With Karan' attracted a lot of criticism. He was sexist, misogynist in his comments while objectifying women on national television. The nation-wide uproar also saw Hardik getting suspended, pending an inquiry into the controversy. But, while the questionable demeanour of Hardik made him 'Public Enemy No. 1', the latest gesture by his elder brother Krunal has struck a chord with cricket fans across the country. Former Indian cricketer Jacob Martin continues to battle for his life in a Vadodara hospital. Martin sustained life-threatening injuries following a road accident on 28th December. Currently, on a ventilator, Martin has found himself in immediate need for financial support in a bid to recuperate with his injuries to lungs and liver. © Twitter While the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) sanctioned an amount of Rs 5 lakh from the Benevolent Fund, Sourav Ganguly, too, stepped up to help the former Indian player. And now, Krunal has joined the drive to help Martin with financial aid. In what was arguably one of the sweetest gestures you'd see, Krunal has handed a blank cheque to Sanjay Patel, former secretary of the BCCI and the Baroda Cricket Association. He reportedly told Patel: "Sir, please fill up whatever is needed, but nothing less than Rs 1 lakh". Krunal's heartfelt gesture saw the cricket fans singing his praise on the social media. Ironically, the fans who were busy bashing the younger Pandya not a long time ago were seen praising the elder one for his good deed. There are good people still in this World. Well done, Krunal Pandya :) pic.twitter.com/uUyyNH2g6X — Abhishek Barthur (@imabhi27) January 22, 2019 Just being the richest athlete like @imVkohli is not important being rich by heart just like krunal Pandya is wat matters — Sameer (@therealsameer_) January 22, 2019 Massive respect @krunalpandya24 ðð #KrunalPandya #HardikPandya #JacobMartin #ICCAwards2018 pic.twitter.com/p4hBsIiFNg — Premnath kp (@PremnathPK2) January 22, 2019 An Incredible gesture from this Great Man @krunalpandya24 to come out and help Jacob Martin.

  22. While their team has been busy negating the Australians in hostile territory, two Indian cricketers have found themselves in a major crisis situation for their antics off the field. KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya, two of the most exciting young talents in the country, became 'Public Enemy No. 1' following their inappropriate demeanour on the popular chat show 'Koffee With Karan'. Appearing on the show, the Indian cricketers were seen making sexist remarks while objectifying women on national television. Owing to their crass comments, the duo sparked a major outrage on the social media with many suggesting stern action against them. Since then, the cricketers, fans and even the Indian cricket board's Committee of Administrators (CoA) have condemned their remarks on the show. While Pandya and Rahul are currently serving their suspension pending an inquiry into the matter, the two cricketers continue to draw flak for what was arguably one of Indian cricket's lowest of lows. Joining the bandwagon, Mumbai Police recently voiced their disapproval of the demeanour of the two cricketers. A 'Gentleman' is a Gentleman, always and everywhere. pic.twitter.com/oANwZH2WwY — Mumbai Police (@MumbaiPolice) January 14, 2019 Taking an indirect dig at Pandya and Rahul, Mumbai Police used the opportunity to school general public against committing the same mistake. Using the background of what looks like a cricket field, Mumbai Police tweeted: "A 'Gentleman' is a Gentleman, always and everywhere". Reacting to the tweet, the cricket fans expressed their own views on the controversy while lauding Mumbai Police for the unique tweet. Alas!

  23. Ever since the so-called 'special' episode of 'Koffee With Karan' aired last Sunday, the lives of Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul have turned around for all the wrong reasons. Owing to their misogynist and sexist comments on the show, the two Indian cricketers have already faced a lot of backlash as they await fitting punishment for their actions on national TV. After the Committee of Administrators (CoA) chief Vinod Rai's recommendation of a two-ODI ban, the duo was charged with misconduct and indiscipline before being suspended from all forms of cricket pending a detailed inquiry into the controversy. The two cricketers were later forced to return home from Australia where the Indian cricket team is currently engrossed with the ODI series. Amid the uproar on social media, Virat Kohli made his stand clear and stated that the comments made by Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul are not are not acceptable and the personal opinions are not the view of the India team. "We, definitely, as the Indian cricket team do not support views like that and that has been communicated. I can definitely say that as the Indian cricket team and responsible cricketers we definitely don't align with those views and those are purely individual views," Kohli had said ahead of India's first ODI against the Aussies at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). BCCL Following Kohli's strong stance on the demeanour of the two cricketers, Harbhajan Singh, too, came out all guns blazing against Pandya and Rahul for tarnishing the image of the game and those who play it. even went on to add that he won't be comfortable having Pandya and Rahul around his wife and daughter. "I will not travel with these two guys in the bus if my daughter or my wife are travelling in the team bus with me. How would they feel? You are looking at women in only one angle and that is not right," Harbhajan told India Today. The veteran Indian spinner also pointed out that the duo's comments have now put every cricketer's reputation on the line. "We don't talk about all this even with our friends and they were talking on public television. Now people might think was Harbhajan Singh like this, was Anil Kumble like this and was Sachin Tendulkar," Harbhajan added. Instagram/@hardikpandya93 "Pandya has been in the team for how long to talk of the team culture in the manner he did. I think this is the way to go," the 38-year-old said, when asked about the suspension. "The BCCI did the right thing, and this is also the way forward. This was expected and I am not surprised," Bhajji said. Following the nation-wide outrage, Pandya and Rahul, in response to the BCCI's showcause notice demanding an explanation from the two cricketers, had regretted their actions and apologised for hurting the sentiments of people. However, the BCCI officials unanimously decided to suspend the Pandya and Rahul while ordering an inquiry into the row.
  24. Ranveer Singh is an incredible actor, no arguing there, but that doesn't make up for the fact that his words and actions have come across as creepy on more than one occasion. Less than a month ago, Deepika Padukone revealed how her first meeting with her now husband was and it was not at all romantic, just creepy as hell. He was flirting with her even when he was dating someone else at that time. Umm, creep alert. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Nov 28, 2018 at 6:59am PST Now, comes another revelation about Ranveer that almost everyone had forgotten about, all thanks to Hardik Pandya and his 'Koffee With Karan' controversy. The entire internet came together to call out Hardik and his straight up misogynistic comments on the show, that has now escalated to finding more creepy behaviour by others. Is this like the starting point of all the creeps getting exposed? I sure hope so. Some of Ranveer's comments from the season 3 episode of the talk show, where he appeared alongside Anushka Sharma, are coming under fire because of how inappropriate they were. What did Ranveer mean by "I went from child to boy while watching Kareena swim?" ð¦ pic.twitter.com/muAx3jZujF — babu bisleri (@PUNchayatiii) January 9, 2019 It's getting worse and worse. "You want your ass pinched? I'm right here" IS THIS YOUR HERO? Also look at how Kjo is laughing. BOLLYWOOD IS FULL OF SCUMS pic.twitter.com/nZbEWiTlp8 — babu bisleri (@PUNchayatiii) January 10, 2019 Just see how taken aback Anushka is with that comment and had to shrug it off as playful banter. No Ranveer, you can't say that shit but I guess you don't care about how you should behave, that too on national television. Ranveer didn't even need Hirani to whitewash his image. Bas thoda PDA with deepika and boooom suddenly he become every girls crush. — babu bisleri (@PUNchayatiii) January 10, 2019 Honestly, that's all it took, but it needs to change now. He was a grown ass adult when he made those comments, and they should be unpardonable, but like they were for Hardik Pandya. Umm, I can't believe it got even worse. Usne iss episode mein ye bhi bola tha ki he used to watch anushka sharma dance and comment among friends "ye pakka power yoga karti hogi" — aditi (@aaditrix) January 9, 2019 Education is important, people. @RanveerOfficial is another example of #WhyEducationIsImportant just like #HardikPandya. How can you pass such sexist comment and get away ? A human being is known by his morale and values but not by his work or talent. But still people will glorify them. SAD ! — Subhradeep Hazra (@HazraSubhradeep) January 10, 2019 No, he desreves to get dragged. Pandya gora hota achi English bolta Aur high society hota then all cool. Hypocrisy max. — ARYAN (@unitedaryan) January 10, 2019 She should've. That look on anushka's face though. If she could she would have killed him right there. — Bhagmati (@paharganj2paris) January 10, 2019 Wow. It's funny cause I remember watching this episode and the scripted dynamic between Anushka and Ranveer was him being the playful asshole and her detesting him. He said something like "at least I got to kiss her (Anushka)". Cancel culture is so convenient in Bollywood lol. https://t.co/bmJ6F2C5tp — Arjun Chopra (@ArjunChopra_8) January 10, 2019 Yep, it does. Old Ranveer videos resurfacing. Will explain a lot why Anushka fans were really happy when Anushka and Virat started dating ð — S (@brandonfIynn) January 10, 2019 Sure.

  25. While the Indian cricket team has been enjoying immense success in Australia lately, the past few months have not really been kind to the likes of Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul. While Pandya has been out of the fold due to his injury in September last year, Rahul has faced the wrath of fans and pundits alike for his dismal form Down Under. Following India's historic Test series win, on one hand, where Pandya must have been raring to go in the ODI series after his recovery, Rahul, too, would have been looking to prove his detractors wrong with a fine showing. But, all of those things seemed possible until last Sunday when the duo stirred up a massive controversy with their comments on popular chat show 'Koffee With Karan'. While Rahul was, somewhat, cautious in his choice of words, Pandya boasted of 'conquests' and possessions like a Desperado, with little respect to women. Following a massive uproar on the social media, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) was forced into issuing a showcause notice to the duo, expecting a clarification on their conduct within 24 hours. © Instagram/@hardikpandya93 After a tame apology on the social media, Pandya issued another statement where the Baroda cricketer reiterated that he will not repeat the mistake again and will be more cautious in future. But, no one was impressed. Not even the BCCI's Committee of Administrators (CoA). And, to make matters worse for the two cricketers, the CoA chief Vinod Rai has now recommended a two-ODI ban on the duo. Calling the comments by Pandya and Rahul "very crass", the CoA chief wrote an email to CEO Rahul Johri. "I have seen the remarks made by these two players on the show in print today. Very crass. No apology can cover it. I had asked Diana (CoA member Diana Edulji) to suggest penalty because I had not seen the clip. I think we need to give both of them a two-match suspension. If Diana agrees, Rahul please draft an appropriate instruction and issue today as their explanations have come in. Separately, please prepare an advisory to all BCCI contracted players and support staff," Rai claimed in the email. "I am not convinced with Hardik's explanation and I have recommended a two-match ban for both players. However the final decision will be taken once Diana gives her go ahead," Rai told PTI. On the other hand, Edulji has also referred the matter to the BCCI's legal cell. "Diana has sought legal opinion whether the duo can be banned. So, obviously a decision will be taken once she gives her nod. As far as I am concerned, the comments were crass, in bad taste and unacceptable," Rai said. © Instagram "The players must be immediately suspended pending a proper inquiry and must be allowed to join the team (if selected) only once they have gone through a proper sensitisation in addition to serving a ban, if imposed upon them," he said. "In any case the entire team and support staff must go through a sensitisation process. The CEO may join them in the sensitisation as well as recommended by Ms. Veena Gowda, Advocate," he added. While the ban is yet to be sanctioned by the BCCI, it has already got the social media buzzing with all sorts of reactions from the cricket fans across the country. Ban them for life and give them tv ðº rights because that's what they are good at,our cricketers use fame to trick ladies and think they are models rather than sports man ,as I said before in England you do not see any sport personalities on tvs or on social media's — Harry (@HarryJethw) January 10, 2019 statements damaging to the game . its important to counsel ,sensitise them before allowing them to wear India colours. — Dr chavez (@Ramesh16276338) January 10, 2019 Minimum 5 match ban.. Pandya wasn't going to play anyway so what sort of lesson he will learn? — Rahul Sharma (@OneRahul_Sharma) January 10, 2019 One person who goes scot free and laughing is @karanjohor. The lads were stupid to fall prey to enticement. Lot to learn from Sachin and Dravid. — Ajit Coelho (@ajitcoelho) January 10, 2019 When Too much money comes your way in too little time and you ain't got enough maturity to deal with it, this is the shit that happens. Both should be banned for IPL 2019 tabhi gosh thikane aayega. And Karan Johan's mindless show should be taken off air forthwith — Anand Broto Bose (@andyboser) January 10, 2019 Net net, both will enjoy an extended vacation in Australia and return, I would vote for a year long ban, that way they would reflect on what they said and what it means to be a role model! — Srikanth Sundararaja (@SundarSrik) January 10, 2019 @BCCI #HardikPandya should be banned for 3 months atleast n should learn to respect women. #KLRahul should also be banned for 6 months. — ankit pandey (@AnkitkrPandey) January 10, 2019 #HardikPandya can sleep with as many women as he wants as long as its consensual Having said that he needs to learn respect and let go of this male chauvinism. As for KL Rahul, if he does not call out such behaviour he too is a part of the problem. But a ban? Nope. — Mriga (@jst_a_scribbler) January 10, 2019 @karanjohar got what he wanted, trp! It's not like this was a live show, kjo would have known how the responses will harm and offend..Def his reputation managers warned him... Obviously he knew it's great noise creator! Why wasn't this reshot? #HardikPandya #KoffeeWithCricketers — Reshma (@reshmabudhia) January 10, 2019 The controversy created by #HardikPandya and #KLRahul clearly asserts the importance of basic education no matter what field one pursues their career in. @BCCI and other councils should probably include a soft skills training and public courtesy course compulsory for all players. — Varun Kulkarni (@vk130795) January 10, 2019
