Kedar Jadhav recently shared a picture on Twitter. The middle-order batsman posted a picture while having a tea along with Shikhar Dhawan and MS Dhoni. Jadhav wrote, “a cup of tea makes everything better!” It was all for his followers on Twitter to draw the analogy. Jadhav’s followers compared the chai (tea) with coffee and hinted the trouble Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul found themselves in after featuring in the famous celebrity talk show Koffee With Karan.
Pandya made misogynist comments on the show and subsequently, he and Rahul were suspended from all forms of cricket till the probe is complete. The duo was called back home and apparently removed from India’s squad for upcoming New Zealand tour.

Pandya was criticised heavily for his comments. Meanwhile, BJP MP Babul Supriyo came in support of the suspended duo and 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. What Hardik said is deplorable, but there has to be some prudence in the way such senior minds handle the young ones.”
“There is ‘Thick’ line between reprimanding someone and destroying them!! My plea to these seniors: please behave your ages, gentlemen & ladies. Rest my case,” he wrote in his another tweet.

As of now, the two remain suspended and BCCI has named Vijay Shankar and young Shubman Gill as their replacements. India will take on Australia in second ODI on January 15. Jadhav who missed the first ODI is likely to be back for the fixture.
