Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul got into a big mess because of their obnoxious behaviour. Hardik's sexist comment has landed both the cricketers in major trouble. Recently, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed that the cricketers have been suspended from playing any form of cricket with immediate effect. Hardik has also lost out on sponsorship deals like Gillette. However, former Chief selector and Indian wicket-keeper Kiran More has come out in support of Hardik. He said that Hardik has learnt his lesson and will play an important part for India at the World Cup.
Union Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP, Babul Supriyo has slammed BCCI's CoA Member, Diana Edulji for trying to destroy the careers of Hardik and Rahul. But, the cricketer, Harbhajan Singh has slammed the cricketers. On the other hand, actress Urvashi Rautela is said to be upset with Hardik's 'Kill' comment. Read on to know more!

Harbhajan Singh Slams Hardik & Rahul
The cricketer Harbhajan Singh slammed Rahul and Hardik for tarnishing the image of the game and those who play it. He was quoted by India Today as saying, "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."
"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... The BCCI did the right thing, and this is also the way forward. This was expected and I am not surprised."
It has to be recalled that when Karan Johar asked Hardik as to whom he wants to Kill, Marry and Hook Up with, Hardik had said that he would kill Urvashi Rautela, marry Parineeti Chopra and hook up with Esha Gupta. Interestingly, the cricketer was linked to all these three actresses.
