The versatile Indian Hardik Pandya supports the idea of leading the Indian Premier League behind closed doors. In a live session with Dinesh Karthik, Hardik came up with the idea of leading the tournament without the crowd of fans.
IPL 2020 should start on March 29th. However, due to the increase in coronavirus in the country, BCCI suspended the tournament until April 15th. However, the BCCI has postponed the IPL indefinitely because the central government extended the country’s blockade until May 3.
On April 25 (Saturday) Hardik Pandya hosted a live session with the Indian batsman Dinesh Karthik. During the concert, Hardik said the league would feel different without the crowd, but it would be a wiser idea.
Hardik admitted: “It will be different. We are used to playing with the crowd because the sense of competition goes with the crowd. I played without crowds at the Ranji Trophy and it feels different. To be honest, when this happens (IPL with the door closed), this is a wiser choice. At least people are entertained at home. “
Hardik Pandya says it a joke for all the coffee controversy
Funnily enough, Karthik raised the controversy surrounding “Koffee with Karan” during the conversation. Last year Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul appeared in an episode of the show that led to the ban for a short time.
Hardik and Rahul have been criticized for their “sexist” and “misogynistic comments”. As a result, BCCI had to open an investigation against the two and they were barred from membership in the Indian team for some time.
When Hardik spoke of the incident, he joked that he was drinking tea instead of coffee. He added that a particular coffee turned out to be very expensive for him.
Pandya revealed, “I don’t drink coffee but green tea. I only had coffee once and it turned out to be too expensive for me. I can bet that Starbucks wouldn’t have coffee that expensive. I’ve stayed away from it ever since .
