They have been pretty sarcastic in their tweets, which came to limelight when they took a dig at Jasprit Bumrah’s no-ball during the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 final against Pakistan. Meanwhile, they once again came up with similar stuff to Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul.

Hardik Pandya has passed on sexist comments in the recent talk show named Koffee With Karan that has a huge fan base in India. Just after Hardik Pandya passing the comments, the people out there showed their anger on the social media causing outrage to Hardik Pandya.

Currently, Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul were handed suspension and will not play any form of the game until the judgement is passed. There are also reports, which says that there is a possibility of missing both the players on ICC World Cup 2019 squad.
All in all, it is going to be a tough few days for Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul. As Hardik Pandya said in his apology, he was carried away in the show and will take quality time to regain the love from the Indian people.
Meanwhile, it is interesting to see the quantum of punishment. The duo has been India’s top-class players, who can make an impact on the game. With England being supportive of fast bowlers, India would dearly miss Hardik Pandya.
