".the comments such as the ones that have been made would definitely have painted a large, red target on the back of the players for potential recruiters for the organized syndicates who attempt to indulge in match-fixing across the globe", Chaudhry wrote in an email after COA member Diana Edulji sought his opinion on the matter.
Sunil Gavaskar insisted it's up to the officials to deal with the Hardik Pandya-KL Rahul issue and pointed out that the controversy surrounding Rahul and Hardik is vastly different from the ball-tampering issue that led to bans slapped on former Australia captain and vice-captain, Steve Smith and David Warner.
Ironically, Rahul was questioned about his thoughts on social media on the show, whether he thought of it is a blessing or a curse.
Pandya had written, "After reflecting on my comments on Koffee with Karan, I would like to apologise to everyone concerned who I may have hurt in any way".More news: The FBI opened a secret investigation into whether Trump worked for Russian Federation
While Hardik has already responded to the notice saying that he is "sincerely regretful" of the comments made in the show and didn't mean to hurt anyone.
Pandya's comments, slammed as misogynistic and sexist, drew a lot of flak from people on social media and administrators alike, prompting CoA to issue a show cause notice on Wednesday. "They have been given 24 hours to give an explanation", Vinod Rai, Chairman of the Committee of Administrators said.
Hardik Pandya was a disgrace to the cricket community the way he spoke on Koffeewith Karan show.

When asked why he wouldn't ask women's names at a club, he said that he likes to 'watch and observe how they move'.
The show recently featured Team India stars KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya in which the young Indian lads talked on many topics ranging from how they spend their time off-field, romanticising women and their personal life. Of notable significance is that Rai has said that he is not satisfied with the response of Pandya, who has expressed regret and tendered apology for his remarks on the show. "I have seen the remarks made by these two players on the show in print today. Exhausted of this boys will be boys attitude", Ekta Chauhan, a Twitter user, wrote.
According to a source, his comments were deemed "crass and cringeworthy" and might have a bearing on whether Indian cricketers appear on "such non-cricket shows" after this.More news: Gary Kubiak will not be Broncos offensive coordinator, sources say
