Hardik Pandya | KL Rahul | Virat Kohli | Indian Cricket Team
It would not be entirely wrong to say that India’s historic triumph in Australia has been marred with the controversy surround KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya’s controversial remarks on talk show Koffee with Karan. Pandya and Rahul are all over the internet for all the wrong reasons. While Rahul is facing the heat for attending the show without taking permission from the BCCI, Pandya is coping criticism for his obscene remarks on the show.
Pandya is facing heavy backlash on social media for remarks on women and his personal life that definitely left a bad taste in mouth. Despite being such a popular figure in the country, the Baroda star gave answers that one can least expect from a cricketer in this cricket-obsessed nation. His disturbing remark about his family being open and how he came home after losing his virginity took the fans by utter surprise. The allrounder had also revealed how he once took his parents to a party where they asked him which woman he was seeing, and he pointed at all of them one by one.

Pandya, on Wednesday, issued an apology, insisting that he got carried away with the nature of the show. However, it has not made things better for him.
And now skipper Virat Kohli has finally broken his silence on the matter. Speaking on the eve of the first ODI against Australia in Sydney, Kohli said that the comments made by Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul do not concur with the views of the dressing room. He also made it clear that the comments were “inappropriate”.

Both Pandya and Rahul face suspensions by the BCCI and their availability for the first ODI at SCG is still unclear.
