'Comments like these don't show anyone in good light'

A source said, "Cricketers over the years, even while bonding with film stars, have maintained their distance for the simple reason that their primary role is representing the country. Comments like these don't show anyone in good light. This is sad."

Pandya's Twitter apology not enough for CoA

Pandya has been dominating the news. He has found himself on the negative side of both fans and the board.

His apology on Twitter did not do him any good.

The CoA felt Pandya's apology on Twitter wasn't enough.

And the body's chief Vinod Rai has set an example by acting tough.

Present and former BCCI officials also seemed unhappy with Pandya's behavior.

Background

What had Pandya stated on the chat show?

Pandya, in his flashy self, sat on the couch and his words were mindless for the most part of the episode.

He boasted how his parents were 'cool' and revealed he told them after he lost virginity.

About women, Pandya didn't have any good things to say. He said he liked to see them 'move' and credited his love for 'black culture' for this.

Response

The CoA has paid heed to Edulji's call

Pandya hasn't represented the country since suffering an injury in September, 2018.

There were questions on will the CoA and BCCI pay heed to Edulji's call.

And now Vinod Rai has fulfilled Edulji's wish.

It seems a correct decision.
