New Delhi: Indian cricketer Hardik Pandya on Wednesday issued an apology for his anti-women comment, saying he may have ‘got a bit carried away with the nature of the show’.

In the latest episode of a talk show, Koffee With Karan, in which opener KL Rahul also featured, the all-rounder drew criticism for his misogynistic and sexist remarks.

He took to twitter to apologise and wrote, "After reflecting on my comments on Koffee with Karan, I would like to apologise to everyone concerned who I may have hurt in any way. Honestly, I got a bit carried away with the nature of the show. In no way did I mean to disrespect or hurt anyone's sentiments. Respect."

During the show he said, "I like to watch and observe how they (women) move. I'm a little from the black side so I need to see how they move."

Hardik Pandya is now gearing up for the three-match ODI series against Australia which starts in January 12 in Sydney. The focus will then shift to New Zealand where India will play a series of 5 ODIs and 3 T20Is from January 23.
