Doesn't every one coming on the show represent India?

Well, I think Bollywood is an exception at times and Karan probably every time.
यो वै स धर्मः सत्यं वै तत् तस्मात्सत्यं वदन्तमाहुर् धर्मं वदतीति धर्मं वा वदन्तँ सत्यं वदतीत्य् एतद्ध्येवैतदुभयं भवति ll
Truly that Dharma is the Truth (Satya); Therefore, when a man speaks the Truth, they say, "He speaks the Dharma"; and if he speaks Dharma, they say, "He speaks the Truth!" For both are one. - Brihadaranyak Upanishad

TOI article about the show and comments.

Link.

BTW - TOI lives on masala. It is one sick newspaper if you look at what all they do to sell. Their motive is just selling the paper - journalism comes secondary. No other news outlet has these many details as of now. TOI knows peple would like to know about it, especially after the notices being issued.

Did Karan ask them if any one was living in the closet?

Main topic: Siraj and Kaul get a chance and I like that. What about Thakur, Rajpoot, etc. Ranji is throwing up new pacers and spinners - Saurabh Kumar (UP), Aniket, TM ul-Haq (Rajasthan).

@snotty, thanks for that link.

I have been watching Pandya for some time now and came to realize some 12 months ago that he was becoming to big for his boots and was walking around with his head up his backside.

But I guess these young blokes who have discovered fame and fortune through cricket need guidance from relatives and past & present senior players.

His smart ass comments about women are typical of the new age males in our society who like to boast about their sexual prowess, I hope he gets a good kick up the rear end for his boorish comments & behaviour.

The host of that television show, Karan should also get a spray from television executives for delving into the personal sex lives of his guests.

Leave that to Shastri, Virat and Dhoni. He is going to get a good spanking.
BCCI is thinking about suspensions.
As for Karan, he is an incorrigible, product of Bollywood.

Maybe the BCCI should suspend them from the upcoming series in India next month against Aust.

Here is an article I wrote this morning in response to reading an article headlining the back page of the sports section here in Perth, the independent review recently undertaken on the Culture of Aust Cricket is evidently not sinking in by this article which Bancroft suggests that Warner is a good role model.

My response,

Cam Bancroft, after reading the back page of this mornings newspaper I can see why Warner picked you to do his dirty work, your suggestion that Warner is a good "role model" beggers belief. Not only are you naive you are an absolute dumb ass for making such a statement especially after fingering him as the culprit who persuaded you to carry out a disgraceful act on the field which caused great hurt and shame not just to Aust cricket but also to the game as a whole. Role Models don't behave in the same manner as Warner does and for you to suggest otherwise is the reason the Independant Review into the culture of the Aust Cricket team was SCATHING. I would be extremely disappointed if either of my cricket playing sons looked upon Warner as a role model which they clearly don't thank goodness. Now I'm just waiting for Warner to come out and say what a good role model Cam Bancroft is. Haa and I see Langer is getting increasingly narky when confronted with some probing questions about the series loss to India and Glen Maxwell's exclusion from the Test side. And one last thing to my friends who portray themselves as lovers of cricket, have not heard a peep out of you and disappointed at your refusal to engage in any cricket discussion, poor but not entirely unexpected, the word front runners springs to mind. Have a good day. BTW, I've penciled in Nov 2020 when Aust tours India for a 4 test series which should hopefully be another cracking contest.

It wont be this strong, Rahul one, Hardik two - let us see. IMHO, more than that would not be fair or necessary. They have learnt their lessons by now. Hardik is young. Young people make mistakes. We cannot compare this to ball tempering or conniving with bookies. I don't think Hardik takes women that casually. Samskaras. It was just the atmosphere that Karan creates. 'Phenk rahe the'.

I wouldn't be too quick to give Hardik a clean character chit. I think some things are not looked at with the same seriousness in this generation as the previous ones. It is pretty okay to have multiple relationships, often they are able to move on without much distress. But many times they are not able to and some end up in the chair opposite mine. The problem lies where the priorities get messed up, where studies and careers do not take precedence over relationships in the teens. A time when the maturity levels are still developing. This probably is not the right thread to go in more details. We will end up taking it OT as with the other threads.

Cricinfo article is correct. Not just Hardik and Rahul are the culprits but the bigger culprit is Karan who in all his shows would bring the discussion to sex. Bollywood thrives on it. It is like yellow journalism and there is no way to stop it. At that time it is better to forget about freedom of expression and put these people in their boots. GOI should make a law about it, perhaps in the next parliament or perhaps even in this session of the parliament. We should not just blame Hardik and Rahul, they went overboard but Karan is a worm.

Hate to bring politics in the discussion, but even an indication of a rap on the knuckles for Karan would become a huge issue with leftist leaning media here complaining of moral policing

It would be interesting to know if Karan went ahead with the questioning inspite of probably knowing what the reaction would be like. Nothing sells like scandal. I think he knew what he was doing there.

Another cricket topic: There were few young ones in the Ranji league matches who performed well. Mostly it was the older group nearing or above 30. OK, let the older people also earn some money. They dedicated themselves to cricket.

Rahul and Hardik seem to be heading for a big holiday. Uncalled for and excessive..

Not a good beginning. Perhaps they need some help from home, some replacements. Dhoni was slow, only Rohit proved equal to the challenge.

They have sent Shubhman Gill and Vijay Shankar. The first is good anywhere other thsn opening (could be good in opening as well), however Shankar's bowling is not of much value and his batting is mediocre. I don't expect much from him. A bit surprised at his selection (as a replacement for Pandya).
