What followed a thumping victory in the Test series, made their festivities a little sour. KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya were slammed for their sexist remarks at Koffee With Karan. Various cricketers and fans of the game gave their opinion on the issue. One among them was the Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh.
Singh said, “I will not travel with these two guys in the bus if my daughter or my wife are travelling in the team bus with me. How would they feel? You are looking at women in only one angle and that is not right”. He further added, “We don’t talk about all this even with our friends and they were talking on public television. Now people might think was Harbhajan Singh like this, was Anil Kumble like this and was Sachin Tendulkar”, while talking to a media organisation.
Various Twitter users slammed the spinner for his remarks, some even reminded The Turbunator of his tough past.
What double standards man @harbhajan_singh this is what Yuvi did in his young days..you got no problem with him..it’s their personal life nothing to do with cricket.they get mature and they change..you can’t tell someone how to live their life..Shane Warne is primary example..
