Recently, the highly controversial episode of Karan Johar's chat show, Koffee With Karan featuring Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul set the social media ablaze.

"You are aware that the enquiry and proceedings against you for misconduct and indiscipline have been initiated under Rule 41 of the BCCI Constitution and the same are presently pending", the show-cause notice, which ESPNcricinfo has accessed, read.

Earlier on Friday, breaking his silence on the allegedly sexist comments made by Pandya and Rahul, India skipper Virat Kohli denounced the duo's statements and said the team management is still waiting for a decision on them.

The controversy has arisen in the build-up to the first of India's three one-day internationals against Australia on Saturday. All mentions of the K.L. Rahul and Hardik Pandya-centric episode have been erased from the social media handles of Star World as well, the channel on which the show airs on TV. "You are just watching and observing how they move", he said.

Supriyo tweeted, "With due & utter respect to Diana Edulji & her contribution to Indian cricket, May I say that her thinking has got "fossil" to contemplate such extreme steps".

India go into the game on the back of a 2-1 Test series win over their hosts - the first time they have won a contest in the longer format of the game in Australia.

Supriyo also said there should be a "thick" line between "reprimanding" the players and "destroying" them.

Terming the BCCI's decision to take punitive measures against the two India cricketers, Harbhajan said, "The BCCI did the right thing, and this is also the way forward". "You have to adjust with the situation".

Not apology, support or activism, what we expect and need are proactive steps towards an equal and respectable society that condones such behaviour.
