Pandya’s comments, slammed as misogynistic and sexist, drew a lot of flak from all corners, prompting CoA to issue a show cause notice on Wednesday.
BCCI secretary Amitabh Choudhary has urged the Committee of Administrators (CoA) to immediately suspend Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul for their crass comments on a TV show Koffee with Karan.
The Indian cricketers have received a lot of flak for their sexist comments on the entertainment show hosted by Bollywood director Karan Johar.
Choudhary’s response was sought from CoA member Diana Edulji after CoA chief Vinod Rai recommended a two-match ban.
“It is surprising that the matter is being sought to be disposed of hurriedly and surreptitiously as in the earlier case of sexual harrasment.
“In view of the ODI in two days, the team/team management should prepare itself accordingly.”
