All mentions of the K.L. Rahul and Hardik Pandya-centric episode have been erased from the social media handles of Star World as well, the channel on which the show airs on TV. Hardik also bragged about his family's "pride" regarding his dating life and promiscuity while being degrading towards women.

He wrote, "After reflecting on my comments on Koffee with Karan, I would like to apologise to everyone concerned who I may have hurt in any way".

"Honestly, I got a bit carried away with the nature of the show". In no way did I mean to disrespect or hurt anyone's sentiments. "It's unfortunate that the bar has been set so low for stars and cricketers (cough "Pandya" cough)", one tweet said. According to Choudhary, any enquiry that be conducted would need to be done as per the BCCI constitution.

Another question from Karan that attracted a debatable response from the two cricketers was, "If you all hit on the same women, then how do you decide?' Rahul answered saying, 'up to the woman", while an outspoken Hardik said that it was about talent.

The 31-year-old Tebow posted photos of himself down on one knee and 23-year-old Nel-Peters wearing an engagement ring. In an Instagram post, Tebow wrote "Thank you for saying YES and making me the happiest man in the world".

Chaudhry raised concerns about the permissions taken by the players before appearing on the show, the disrepute it brought to other Indian cricketers and about how these comments leave them open to honeytraps that players are trained to avoid in ICC ACSU briefings. The two are outseated from the first match. As per Committee of Administrators chairman Vinod Rai, Pandya and Rahul's explanations weren't convincing and he has recommended a two-match ban. There were reports stating that the two players may receive show cause notices for their recent statements on the show. "Very crass. No apology can cover it".

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)?" 'I like to watch and observe how they move.

India will play three one-dayers against Australia after winning their first ever Test series in the country 2-1.

Terming the comments "inappropriate", the 30-year-old skipper said the belief in the dressing room is completely different from the individual comments of the two young players. He said, "We, definitely, as the Indian cricket team do not support views like that and that has been communicated".
