Under fire for their comments on the show ‘Koffee With Karan’, the two cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul have been suspended pending an inquiry.
The inquiry will be into their outrage-evoking comments on women.
It is also said that Pandya and Rahul were dropped from the first one-day international against Australia to be played in Sydney on Saturday.
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.
The decision comes after Rai’s CoA colleague Diana Edulji on Friday recommended suspension till further action against the
two after the BCCI legal team refused to declare their comments a violation of the code of conduct.
