Pandya and Rahul suspended over comments about women on TV show

Hardik Pandya’s Father Comes to His Defence Following Koffee With Karan 6 Controversy

"We have gone through the Code of Conduct which also lays down a procedure for dealing with acts of misconduct on the part of players".

The decision to suspend the players was taken after the CoA member Diana Edulji consulted the BCCI's legal team.The legal team added that the CoA would be "justified in and entitled to" appoint an ad-hoc ombudsman, "with a defined specific mandate of adjudicating on the present matter". The respect for cricketers in our country is huge and even foreign players say the reverence for the sport and its sportsmen is something else in our country.

In the pre-match media interaction, India captain Virat Kohli condemned the comments made by Pandya and Rahul, calling them "inappropriate".

Social media reprimanded Karan Johar for luring Pandya and Rahul to open up about their sexual preferences and airing it on national television for garnering TRP for his chat show. Responding to the criticism, he said that the public should not make too much of Hardik's comments as they were made on a lighter note with the intention of entertaining the audience. "I'm little from the black side so I need to see how they move", Pandya said in response to host Karan Johar's question about why he doesn't ask women their names at bars.

However, the skipper insisted that the dressing room morale won't be affected by the controversy after the historic high of a maiden Test series triumph in Australia. "We are still waiting for a decision to be made".

At Edulji's behest, the BCCI's legal team gave its inputs as to the way forward, and whether and how the players could be charged under the board's new constitution, which came into effect in August 2018.

Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer on opposite sides of Australian Open draw
Now seeded 16th, Williams was drawn into the same section Thursday as No. 1-ranked Simona Halep , the runner-up here past year . World No 4 Alexander Zverev is in the same half and a blockbuster semi-final looms if both players advance that far.

The duo have been omitted from the line-up for the opening ODI in Sydney, Australia.

Harbhajan Singh minced no words and told India Today, "Look, the punishment could be a two-match or three-match ban".

CoA chief Vinod Rai recommended a two-match ban for Pandya and Rahul.

According to Cricket.com.au, Jhye Richardson, Jason Behrendorff and Nathan Lyon will join the 34-year-old Siddle as the four specialist bowlers in the XI.

After his surprise recall, Siddle on Thursday had said, "It's something I'd probably forgotten about really. So yeah, I feel like a young kid getting this first opportunity, so it's pretty nice to get that phone call and be around the squad and have the potential to play an ODI after a long time away".
