As Team India prepare to face West Indies in the Two-match Test series starting Thursday, KL Rahul revealed about his feelings post-Koffee with Karan episode for which he faced backlash from people along with Hardik Pandya.  

In an interview to Times of India KL Rahul said he felt ‘bitter’ after the episode but is back to being good friends with Hardik Pandya.

 Rahul said, “I won’t lie. I was bitter for a bit; it affected and bothered me a lot. I was angry, but I came out of it all as a more accepting person. I understood that certain things are sensitive, and no matter what you do, certain people will find the bad in you.”

Both the cricketers received lot pf backlash from all the corner, especially Hardik Pandya whose comment was deemed as sexist and misogynist.  The show also did not go down well with team India and the cricket administrators after they opened up about dressing room culture.

The cricketer from Karnataka said that he wants to move on from the incident and put his focus back on the game. “I need to focus more on cricket, spend more time in the gym, on the field — practicing and training. It made me more focussed on my profession and what I really need to do. As I told you before, cricket is the only thing I am good at and there’s nothing else I can do to survive, so I need to give it all I have,” he said.

Rahul in his interview also revealed that he and Hardik also stayed away from social media and spent quality time with family.

“We learnt from the situation, accepted it, and now we are back to being good friends. We literally spend 300 days together… travelling and playing cricket. Hardik is still a good friend and we enjoy each other’s company,” he added.
