Gujarat Titans, one of the two new franchises who will be making their debut in the Indian Premier League (IPL), launched their jersey in a grand event at the Narendra Modi stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday (March 13). Their skipper Hardik Pandya, director of cricket Vikram Solanki, head coach Ashish Nehra were present at the venue among other stakeholders of the team. The event was hosted by cricket presenter Vikram Sathaye and the jersey launch show was a hit and fans poured love on social media. We ‘launched’ our jersey last night, quite literally! Here’s a quick snapshot of the event!#GujaratTitans pic.twitter.com/zGhY0jKyU3 — Gujarat Titans (@gujarat_titans) March 14, 2022 The IPL 2022 will see 10 teams participating as compared to eight in the previous season and while there is excitement among fans regarding the T20 extravaganza, controversy has already hit one of the new franchises -- Gujarat Titans -- even before the start of the tournament. Vikram Sathaye's remarks regarding women cricket fans caught the attention of social media users and they let their frustration known on Twitter. Live is Live ! So happy to be on stage after so long at the Jersey launch of @gujarat_titans ! #GujaratTitans Super fun chat with @hardikpandya7 #Nehraji and #Vikramsolanki pic.twitter.com/hc9bOixNMQ — Vikram Sathaye (@vikramsathaye) March 13, 2022 "My theory on cricket is, couples don't fight each other because of cricket. Because three months men will be watching cricket. The other day my aunt came and said to me, you know three months he will not talk to me. I said good for you. I tell my aunt if you don't want your husband to play games with you, let him watch cricket and everything will be good in the family," Vikram Sathaye said. "Having said that a lot women watch the sport and many couples tell me that this is the only thing they do as a couple." Watch the video here: Fans called out the sexist jokes made by the cricket presenter and demanded an apology from him for his stereotypical mindset. He is still making 20 year old jokes. https://t.co/4OKKLZfHVN — Cricket baba (@Cricketbaba5) March 14, 2022So @vikramsathaye hasn't yet apologised for this.. https://t.co/QZ15vYHbQk — Adarsh (@Adarsh__ash) March 14, 2022This is not even funny. None in audience seem involved in this stereotypical 90s tirade. — Predictably Irrational (@IrrationalDesi) March 14, 2022He shouldn't be spared now. This is utterly disgusting and unacceptable behaviour. https://t.co/cXz4YHZF4o — (@choccolava__) March 14, 2022in a big 2022 this is what a cricket presenter has to say. This field is hitting new lows everyday. https://t.co/pfInEsbr7B — Prajakta (@18prajakta) March 13, 2022We have seen what such remarks could lead to when Gujarat Titans skipper Hardik Pandya's controversial comments saw him receiving a ban from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Hardik had to issue an apology after being asked to go back home from the tour of Australia in 2019. KL Rahul, who will be seen leading Lucknow Super Giants in the IPL 2022, was also banned by the BCCI as he was also present at the popular celebrity talk show with Pandya. "I would like to apologise to everyone concerned who I may have hurt in any way. Honestly, I got a bit carried away with the nature of the show. In no way did I mean to disrespect or hurt anyone's sentiments. Respect," Hardik had written in his public apology on Twitter. In today's day and age when every comment is closely monitored if you are a renowned name, such remarks about women were a classic example of brain fade by the cricket presenter.
