Time for Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul to be banned forever!
Well, millions of the fans of Indian cricket are eagerly waiting to see what kind of disciplinary action will be taken against the two young Indian cricketers, viz Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul for passing defamatory comments against women in popular TV show Koffee with Karan.

The host Karan Johar is notorious for provoking the guests into passing spicy comments so as to increase the viewership of this show.

It is learnt that the BCCI is considering strict action against both the defaulters after sending them home from the current tour. Plainly from the perspective of a common man, this appears to be an eye wash. This will not only set a wrong precedent among the players but will encourage them to garner publicity.

First of all, both the players went for the shoot of the TV show without obtaining prior permission. Then, the tone and tenor of Pandya was like he thought himself to the backbone of the Indian team.   

As veteran Sunil Gavaskar has correctly said the presence of both of them really does not matter for the Indian squad. Even if both of them had been indispensable, they would not have been allowed to degrade the image of women.

It is very difficult to digest that someone from the Indian cricket team, which is known for having gentlemen cricketers like Tendulkar, Dravid, Kumble and Dhoni has stooped too low while attempting to gain cheap publicity.

Now the father of Pandya is saying that the remarks were passed as he got carried away by the emotions and to entertain the audience. But why has he not publicly denied the statement of his son that he used to share his experience with his family.

Another fear of the BCCI which is very relevant is that characters like Pandya and KL Rahul might prove vulnerable to honey traps set up by the bookies.

In fact, the show off tendency of Pandya was quite visible from the time he used to change the color and style of his hair and easily term it as funky.

Also, the extended artificial aggression shown by him on the field to get limelight was not liked much by a majority of the learned audience.

Therefore in my humble opinion both of them should be barred forever so as to deliver a message loud and clear that no one, I repeat, no one can be given freedom to hurt the felling of billions of women in particular and billions of the fans of this gentlemen's game.
