GETTY IMAGESIndian cricketer Hardik Pandya has quickly apologised for controversial comments made on a TV chat show
As Johar dove into Pandya's personal life, the latter made several free-wheeling remarks that displayed immaturity and an ingrained sense of misogyny, with people billing his comments as "crass, creepy, sexist, racist, and cringe-worthy". "It's unfortunate that the bar has been set so low for stars and cricketers (cough "Pandya" cough)", wrote a Twitter user. According to Choudhary, any enquiry that be conducted would need to be done as per the BCCI constitution. Earlier, Hardik Pandya Wednesday responded to the BCCI show cause notice by saying that he was "sincerely regretful" for the comments. BCCI said that Hardik has not been respectful and mindful to his responsibilities as an worldwide cricketer and had made extremely problematic statements on important issues like being respectful towards women.
Both players were ordered to explain themselves by the Board of Control for Cricket in India and face suspension with the furore overshadowing the team's upcoming one-day series against Australia, starting in Sydney on Saturday.
However, Rai told PTI that he was not convinced with Pandya's explanation.
Chaudhry raised concerns about the permissions taken by the players before appearing on the show, the disrepute it brought to other Indian cricketers and about how these comments leave them open to honeytraps that players are trained to avoid in ICC ACSU briefings.
He also shared that he openly identifies the women he sleeps with to his parents: "At a party my parents asked me acha tera wala (women) kaun sa hai (Which are your women)?"
"I am a little from the black side, so I have to see how they move first".
"From the Indian cricket team point of view, any inappropriate comments that are made in that scenario are something that we definitely don't support", he said.
"The two concerned players have felt what has gone wrong and they have understood the magnitude of what's happened". The Indian cricket team captain on Friday denounced the statements made by the duo on the show and said the team management is still waiting for a decision on the duo.
