The sixth episode of What the Duck 3, hosted by Vikram Sathaye, featured KL Rahul and Ravichandran Ashwin. In the conversation both shared secrets about players on and off the field. Rahul went to the extent of calling Hardik Pandya ’scary’ to hang around with. He narrated an incident proving his point: “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]. 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.

However, this was not the first time Hardik has been blamed for not having filter while talking. In the show Breakfast with Champions, Kohli had also talked on the same lines about Hardik not having control over his tongue: “Pandya is one of the entertaining members in the team, but I haven’t seen anyone as lost as Pandya in my life. 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 yaar’. He is very good at heart but he doesn’t have any control over his tongue.”
