The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Committee of Administrators (CoA) asked Supreme Court to appoint an ombudsman in the BCCI to decide on fate of Team India members KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya, who have been suspended because of their misogynist remark on women, they made on a TV show, Koffee with Karan.
A bench comprising justices SA Bobde and AM Sapre said it will hear the matter after a week when senior advocate PS Narsimha takes over charge as amicus curiae in the matter. The top court appointed Narsimha as amicus after senior advocate Gopal Subramanium withdrew his consent from being amicus curiae in the matter.
Hardik Pandya made some disturbing comments on the show bur his most disturbing remark was about his family being open and how he came home after losing his virginity and said, “Aaj karke aya hu (I did it today).” He also recalled taking his parents to a party where they asked him which woman he was seeing, and he pointed at all of them one by one and said, his parents were proud of him for having ‘scene’ with multiple girls.
KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya were on national duty representing India in Australia, when they were called back mid-tour. While KL Rahul showed a streak of poor performances in the recently concluded Test series which India won by 2-1, Hardik Pandya did not play any game.
