Indian cricketers Hardik Pandya and K L Rahul were today suspended pending an inquiry into their comments on women during a TV show.

A senior BCCI official said both will be sent home on the first available flight from Australia.

The Committee of Administrators (CoA) chairman Vinod Rai said both Pandya and Rahul have been suspended pending an inquiry.

They were omitted from the line-up for the opening match in Sydney. The decision to hand them suspensions came after Rai’s CoA colleague Diana Edulji recommended suspension till further action against the two.

Following the suspension issued by CoA in accordance with BCCI, Hardik and Rahul will return to India for an enquiry against their misconduct and indiscipline done by them that have been initiated under Rule 41 of the BCCI Constitution that states.

 In terms of Rule 41(6) of the BCCI Constitution, the players are hereby suspended with immediate effect from participating in any manner whatsoever in any match or function or event or activity that is authorized, organized, sanctioned, recognized or supported in any way by the BCCI, the ICC or any State Association, until final adjudication of the matter.

Pandya appeared on Koffee with Karan with teammate KL Rahul. Comments he made on the show were called out as sexist and caused a social media furor after it was aired on Hotstar. The streaming platform owned by Star has since taken down the video and Pandya issued an apology but that has done little to limit the damage.

“He was only looking to entertain the audience. So, it (comments) should not be viewed very seriously or negatively. He is an innocent boy with a very fun- loving nature,” said Himanshu Pandya.
