If you thought you had seen the last of the Hardik Pandya-K L Rahul saga already, well, you are mistaken. Even after the several developments that has been happening with the saga, it seemed like the duo's re-inclusion into the India squad was the end of everything.
It has also been a while since anything else happened with the case. However, a major development has now happened as according to reports, The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Ombudsman DK Jain on Saturday directed Hardik Pandya and opener KL Rahul to donate a sum of Rs 1 lakh each, to widows of 10 constables in paramilitary forces who have lost their lives on duty. The duo have to pay the fine as a punishment for the sexist comments they made on Karan Johar's TV show Koffee with Karan.
Hardik and Rahul have also been asked to pay Rs 10 lakh each in the fund created by Cricket Association for the blind, for promotion of game for the blind within 4 weeks.
The Ombudsman has also said that if both the players fail to do so within four weeks from the date of the receipt of the order, the Board of Control for Cricket in India might deduct the said amount from the match fees payable to the players.
