Indian cricket team all-rounder Hardik Pandya has come under a little bit of fire from his teammate KL Rahul, who has made a candid revelation that the former is ‘scary’ company to hang out with.

Rahul made his comments in the talk show ‘What the Duck 3’ in which he appeared along with India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin.

“It is scary to hang out with Hardik Pandya. There was a time before a match, me, him and Dinesh Karthik headed out to clear our minds. The next day, he spilled everything to Virat (Kohli),” Rahul revealed.

“I became scared and asked him why would he go ratting up to the captain! He does not know what to say when. He has no filter,” Rahul added, according to a media release.

This is not the first time a teammate has spoken about Pandya’s behaviour. India captain Virat Kohli too has in the past highlighted how Pandya looked ‘lost’ and would not ‘think before’ speaking, in a talk show.

“Pandya is one of the entertaining members in the team. But, I haven’t seen anyone as lost as Pandya in my life,” Kohli said while appearing on the show ‘Breakfast with Champions’.

Kohli added, “Pandya doesn’t think before speaking. Once he wanted to take Ash’s (Ashwin) name but he ended up saying - ‘Ravikashyap Ashwin kya bowling karta hai yar’. He is very good at heart but he doesn’t have any control over his tongue.”
