Young cricketers Hardik Pandya and K L Rahuul have been suspended from playing any form of cricket by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for their sexist comments on a television show, Koffee with Karan, hosted by well-known filmmaker Karan Johar.
 
A press release from BCCI said the Committee of Administrators had decided to suspend the duo.
 
"The duo will now return to India and an enquiry and proceedings will be made against them for misconduct and indiscipline that have been initiated under Rule 41 of the BCCI Constitution that states as under:-
 
"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.
 
"The CoA first sent out a notice to both players concerned to which the players responded with an apology. After considering their reply, it was decided that the BCCI would proceed against both for misconduct and indiscipline.
 
"The duo is now called upon to provide an explanation as to why they should not be proceeded against for misconduct and indiscipline under Rule 41 of the BCCI Constitution within a period of 7 (seven) days. This is without prejudice to the BCCI’s rights and contentions, all of which are hereby expressly reserved," the release said.
 
The All-India Senior Selection Committee will soon name their replacements for the ODI series against Australia and the tour to New Zealand, the release added.
