Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul suspended, to miss ODI series vs Australia

Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul suspended, to miss ODI series vs Australia”

"You are aware that the enquiry and proceedings against you for misconduct and indiscipline have been initiated under Rule 41 of the BCCI Constitution and the same are presently pending", the show-cause notice, which ESPNcricinfo has accessed, read. The team also recommended that an ad-hoc Ombudsman, meeting the criteria set by the BCCI constitution, be appointed to adjudicate on the matter within the maximum prescribed period of 6 months from the date the player is charged.

"Both Pandya and Rahul have been suspended pending an inquiry", CoA chief Vinod Rai told PTI.

On Thursday, Vinod Rai, Chairman of the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) had recommended a two-ODI ban on the duo but fellow member Diana Edulji had pushed for a legal opinion before deciding on the quantum of punishment.

In case the two are brought back from Australia, the likes of Rishabh Pant and Manish Pandey will be in contention to be their replacements.

In the aftermath of the inappropriate comments made by cricketers KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya on Koffee With Karan, the BCCI could well slap a 2-match ban on the players.

"We as the Indian cricket team and responsible cricketers do not support such views", Kohli said ahead of the first ODI against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) here. "We are still waiting for a decision to be made", Kohli said at the press conference in Sydney on Friday.

"We are still waiting for a decision to be made but from the Indian cricket team point of view this changes nothing in terms of our beliefs in the change room".

"I don't think we will have too much of trouble if we have to change our combinations".

The social media did not take kindly to the inappropriate statements by Pandya and Rahul, with people calling it crass and cringeworthy.

The 25-year-old Pandya posted his apology on social media.

"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", Pandya said on Twitter.

"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.

Pandya had boasted about hooking up with multiple women and being open about it with his parents during the interview. "I'm little from the black side so I need to see how they move".
