Even as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) contemplates the quantum of punishment for Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul after their controversial comments on the Koffee with Karan talk show, online streaming platform Hotstar has taken the episode down from their site.

While a decision from the BCCI over the extent of the bans for both Hardik and KL Rahul remains pending, the cricketers' immediate future in the team also hangs in balance.

The chief of BCCI's Committee of Administrators (COA) Vinod Rai, in an email conversation with CoA member Diana Eduljee on Thursday, suggested they be banned from two-One Day Internationals (ODIs).

The comments made by Rahul and Pandya were unanimously deemed to be "sexist" and "misogynistic".

Hardik Pandya had taken on Twitter on Wednesday for apologizing for his comments on the show. In no way did I mean to disrespect or hurt anyone's sentiments.

As a result, it claims to outperform other Kirin 710 and Snapdragon 660 powered smartphones as it scores 144,599 points on Antutu. The selfie camera is tucked in the small waterdrop notch at the top of the 6.3-inch display that has a 2340x1080 resolution.


During the episode, Pandya is asked by KJo why he doesn't remember the names of the women he meets at nightclubs, in response to which he says: "I like to watch and observe how they move. I think we need to give both of them a two-match suspension", Rai told IANS over email.

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)?" "The two players concerned have realised what has gone wrong and they have understood the magnitude of what has happened", he said.

India will play three one-dayers against Australia after winning their first ever Test series in the country 2-1. Two bits of the episode where Ranveer makes risque jokes about Anushka and Kareena Kapoor are going viral on social media, with many users criticising the Simmba star.

The decision could turn dicey for the duo who are now in Australia for the ODI series.

Speaking with the media ahead of the match, Indian cricket team's current captain Virat Kohli addressed the controversy: "We, as the Indian cricket team and responsible cricketers, don't align with those views".
