Indian cricketers, KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya landed themselves into huge trouble with their appearance on the TV show, Koffee with Karan. They were suspended after that and were sent back home from Australia mid-way through the tour.
India’s head coach, Ravi Shastri opened on the hot potato and said Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul needed ” the rap on their knuckles”, referring to the duo’s crass comments while appearing in a TV show.
“Pandya and Rahul needed the rap on their knuckles. They would have learnt a lot from what happened, which is good,” Shastri told ‘Mirror Now’.
“You are bound to make mistakes and you are bound to be punished at times but that’s not the end of the world. Such experiences just help players to come back stronger, harder and wiser,” he said.
