I don't know why he is being bandied about as a "role model". If the parents cannot guide the kids, why blame cricketers and movie stars? Typical to assign blame to someone else.

BCCI did it solely for it's own financial reasons. In this PC #metoo world anything that seems anti-woman will be affected. It's the same in the US which is why it is better to clean out one's public social media like twitter. It doesn't take a lot for someone to target you.

The moment these guys get into the Indian team, they acquire a Bollywood starlet/model/socialite girlfriend. And typically once they fall in love, the parties follow along with less focus on cricket leading to getting kicked out of the team.

Will Rishabh with so much potential fall into this trap?

Well, like it or not, these public figures have an effect on adolescents and even young adults. Even with parents to guide them, kids will be definitely influenced by what's on media, especially positive media (= a Australia-beating cricket team, a good cricketer, a famous movie star, a zonal kabaddi champion or malkaumb gold medallist). And things that get on TV go everywhere these days, with twitter and whatnot. As representatives of a national team, cricketers do have a responsibility of how they conduct themselves in public. For sure, they have a right to privacy, and their private lives are their private business- until they go on TV and decide to make it public. Then it becomes everybody's business, especially to those who pay their salaries.

For the record, I have no idea which reporter/tweeter/repeater/Peter said what about Pandya. I genuinely care nothing for their 2-bit opinions, who in many cases manufacture outrage and indignation to stay noticed and relevant, which is a pathetic way to live, really. (I do feel bad for RAhul- as I understand it, he was quite measured in his response and they went after him simply because he was sitting next to Pandya in the same show!).

Srikumar, Rahul was the collateral damage in this case.
But isn't it surprising that KJo (Not the adminullah) invited these 2-bit players on his show instead of A-listers like Virat or Bumrah or MSD or Sachin. Sometimes things do look odd especially knowing that guests are curated to capture TRP and almost never anyone outside the Bollywood is invited to be on this show. Anyways it wasn't even a news till COA worthies jumped in. Next would be Hon. Supreme court (Which anyways has crores of cases pending) spending few days on this important episode of national importance.

PS: As long as they are contracted by BCCI, these players need to follow the rules of the game as much useless as they sound.
Heck in other sports, one has to provide one's itanery for Anti-Doping body.

Cricket fans in USA, do you know which channel is showing the India Vs New Zealand 1-day and T-20 series? I notice Willow TV is not showing it nor is Hotstar, the 2 sources I watch cricket on in USA.

Sarfaraz gets four-match suspension for breach of Anti-Racism Code

Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed has been suspended for four matches after accepting that he was in breach of the ICC’s Anti-Racism Code for Participants following an incident that occurred during the second ODI against South Africa in Durban on Tuesday.

Sarfaraz aimed a comment at South Africa all-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo which resulted in Sarfaraz being charged with an offence under the Code, namely;

“Engaging in any conduct (whether through the use of language, gestures or otherwise) which is likely to offend, insult, humiliate, intimidate, threaten, disparage or vilify any reasonable person in the position of a Player, Player Support Personnel, Umpire, Match Referee, Umpire Support Personnel or any other person (including a spectator) on the basis of their race, religion, culture, colour, descent, national or ethnic origin.”

Sarfaraz will miss the remaining two matches of the ongoing ODI series as well as the first two matches of the T20I series to follow.

As per Article 7.3 of the Anti-Racism Code, Sarfaraz will also have to undergo an education programme to promote the understanding and awareness of issues directly relevant to the offence that he has committed. The ICC will work with the PCB to determine when and how this should take place.

The incident was initially reported by Ranjan Madugalle of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees after he conducted initial investigations and spoke to both players after the match. Following a further investigation, the ICC General Counsel, Iain Higgins, then determined that the player had a case to answer under the Code, and the player was issued with a charge notice on 26 January.

ICC Chief Executive David Richardson said: “The ICC has a zero-tolerance policy towards conduct of this nature. Sarfaraz has promptly admitted the offence, was regretful of his actions and has issued a public apology, so these factors were taken into account when determining an appropriate sanction.”

Stark difference between the conduct of the Aussie media/commentators and the Kiwis. Kiwis have been more studious and humble in their approach,always talking about the finer points which they can learn from the Indian greats and giving them enough respect which they deserve. The bogan (rough aussies) commentary team was raving and ranting by as early as the 10th over if the Indians got off to a good start. Tried riling up Kohli & co. at every opportunity and got the response they deserved from the Indian captain. On the contrary Kohli's demeanor has been totally different in NZ, where he knows 'giving it back'is not required. It was great to see the Indian team just focusing only on winning in Australia and let their game do the talking. India's series win in Aus has opened a new chapter in world cricket which challenged and thwarted the white supremacy. Aussies have gone into a shock which they wouldnt admit to no matter what, not to mention the dwindling interest in cricket in the general population furthered by the series defeat to a touring Asian side. The NZ series win has just stamped on the fact that India is now capable of winning in SENA countries convincingly. We always had great batsmen since as early as the 70s, but the difference this time is the bowling unit.

With his height, why can't Vijay Shankar bowl at 135kmph. If he can, the medium pacer allrounder position is his for the taking, especially in tests. His batting looks more compact than Pandya, Rayudu or Karthik.

Hardik Pandya will probably get a suspension for dissent.

Finally, the aussies manage to win a Series...

There was an article in Sydney Morning Herald, where the author was ruing the demolition the aussies were dealt by India and was saying that they need a "Lift me up" series to boost morale ahead of Ashes.. Sri Lanka seemed happy playing the role of someone who would eat a lot of punches..

OTOH, England needs a 'Lift me up' series too, before the Ashes.. The Windies absolutely blew them away.. :rotfl:
