KL Rahul recently shared his picture of drinking coffee & showcased his love for coffee but Twitterati’s had something else in their mind when they saw the batsman picture.
The Twitterati’s quickly reminded the outstanding batsman of his guest appearance in Karan Johar’s talk show ‘Koffee With Karan’ in January 2019 which led to fines suspension of the all-rounder Hardik Pandya & Rahul for their extreme sexist comments.
Rahul captioned his picture, “Coffee”. The moment KL Rahul shared his coffee drinking picture fans popped up with hilarious reply.
“Coffee>>>>> Koffee,” wrote one Twitter user. “Haha, shall we call Karan to brew one for you,” wrote another. “Rahul Akele Akele ? ? …” commented another user, along with a photo of Karan Johar.
“Please stay away from Coffee,” advised one user.
“The coffee with Karan is more expensive than your career,” came another observation.
KL Rahul had uploaded the same picture on his Instagram handle as well & the Indian Captain Virat Kohli teased the batsman for the same topic. “Cup ganda hai,” Kohli wrote on Rahul’s picture.
The duo had to pay a great penalty for drinking Koffee with Karan. The duo was forced to return back from their Australia tour as the episode was aired, the duo was also fined Rs 20 Lakh each by the BCCI. Ombudsman D.K. Jain directed the players to pay Rs 1 lakh each to the widows of 10 constables in paramilitary forces who had lost their lives on duty. Pandya and Rahul were also asked to deposit Rs 10 lakh each in the fund created for the promotion of cricket for the blind in the country.
However, KL Rahul recently discussed his suspension period and said that the time during his suspension played a major role in helping him to deliver consistent performances & cementing his place in the limited-overs squads for India.
“A lot of credit for my consistent performance goes to how differently I started thinking after 2019. With this suspension and with all that happened, I was tempted or I was in a way wanted to be selfish and play for myself, and I failed. So I told myself I need to go out and do what the team wants me to do,” Rahul told ‘India Today’.
“We all know our careers are not too long and I realized after 2019 that I probably have a good 12 or 11 years left in me and I need to dedicate all my time and energy towards becoming a player and team man,” the 28-year-old stylish Karnataka batsman said.
