Did Hardik Pandya abuse Virat Kohli’s mother? Viral video evokes angry reactions from fans; Gujarat Titans skipper called ‘pimp’


A viral of Hardik Pandya allegedly using expletives for Virat Kohli’s mother has set the internet on fire with fans lashing out at the controversial cricketer. While some believe that Pandya abused Kohli’s mother during one of the recent T20 International matches against England, others felt that he had essentially hurled abuses at skipper Rohit Sharma. Angered by Pandya’s abusive video, fans took to Twitter to trend hashtag #हार्दिक_पांड्या_भडवा_हैं, which loosely translates as ‘Hardik Pandya is pimp.’

In the viral video, Pandya could be heard angrily telling a fellow cricketer to listen to him and not the other player by using expletives for that other player’s mother. Some felt that Pandya was in conversation with his skipper Rohit Sharma and he was unhappy that the latter was not listening to him over the issue of DRS. Others concluded that Pandya was abusing Rohit Sharma’s mother.

This is not the first that Pandya has faced fans’ ire for being disrespectful to his senior players. Earlier, he was called a ‘classless’ cricketer after he was seen lashing out at Mohammad Shami for not trying to hold on to a catch of his bowling in an IPL match.

In 2019, Pandya had to face considerable flak from cricket fans, who accused him of being disrespectful to Zaheeer Khan, one of the greatest fast-bowlers India has produced.

This was after Hardik had shared a video clip of a match while wishing Zaheer on his birthday, where he was seen hitting the former India bowler for a six. He had written, “Happy birthday Zak … Hope you smash it out of the park like I did here.”

But, Zaheer Khan had decided to shut Pandya up by posting a terse reply. He had written, “Hahahaha….thank you for the wishes @hardikpandya7 my batting skills can never be as good as yours but the birthday was as good as the next delivery you faced from me in this match.”
