Let's take a look at some controversies related to Hardik Pandya away from the cricket field.

In the year 2019, Hardik Pandya quoted trouble at the popular TV show 'Koffee with Karan'. Fellow teammate, KL Rahul's name was also dragged through the mud as Hardik's made some lewd remarks regarding women in her life. Hardik's interview led to a huge uproar and he had to apologize on social media while losing his spot in the Indian team for a short period.

Not only this, the BCCI, taking action against him, also imposed a two-match ban. Apart from Hardik, KL Rahul was also banned for two matches. Along with this, a fine of Rs 20 lakh each was also imposed on both of them.


Before Hardik,Krunal Pandya  was also stopped by customs at Mumbai airport last year. During this, undeclared gold and some expensive watches were confiscated from him. Krunal could not give proper answers to the enquiries of the officers subsequently leading to a customs duty pay of about 38 percent on the value of the goods.Krunal Pandya  


Let us tell you that a person living abroad for more than a year can bring gold up to Rs 50,000 duty-free to India. At the same time, for women, this exemption is up to one lakh rupees. Women can come to India with duty-free gold worth up to one lakh rupees. At the same time, the duty-free conditions are applicable only on gold jewelry.

Hardik Pandya's performance in the recently concluded T20 World Cup in UAE was very poor. He took the field for the team in three matches in which he scored 69 runs at an average of just 34.50. At the same time, he bowled only four overs in the tournament, in which he did not get any wicket.

Not only in the T20 World Cup but in the second phase of the IPL, Hardik was not able to spread his shine. Hardik, who played for Mumbai Indians, was not able to show anything special in batting while due to injury he stayed away from bowling.


Last year, Krunal Pandya's feud with Deepak Hooda made a lot of headlines in the domestic season. Hooda had accused Krunal, who played for Baroda, that Krunal, who was captaining the team with him, had 'abused' and threatened him. Subsequently, the State Cricket Association conducted an inquiry and suspended Hooda, alleging indiscipline. The Cricket Association said that they have violated the rule of bio bubble. Because he had left the hotel room without informing the management.
