New sexism scandal for cricket after TV misogyny by Pandya, Rahul

Hardik Pandya and Lokesh Rahul were guests on an episode of 'Koffee with Karan' - a popular TV chat show that aired on Sunday - where the former boasted about a crowded sex life and objectified women by casually dissecting their bodies.
It also triggered an official backlash, with India's main cricket board, the BCCI, asking the duo for a speedy explanation at a time when the sport's mores are already under scrutiny.
Experts say the BCCI intervention is crucial to ensure "locker room talk" is not normalised in India, where cricket is a national obsession and top players are revered by millions.
