Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul Set To Miss Australia ODIs

CRICKET

Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul are set to miss the three-match one-day series against Australia for their sexist comments on Koffee with Karan.

The Committee of Administrators (CoA) has recommended the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to set up an inquiry committee which will look into this controversy.

Diana Edulji, who is a member of the Supreme Court appointed CoA, has also suggested that the players should be called back immediately from the tour of Australia, where India is scheduled to play a three-match ODI series, starting.

The BCCI had sought legal opinion on the sanctions that can be imposed on the two players for their misogynist remarks on Karan Johar’s talk show.

In emails exchanged between CoA, BCCI adn the legal team, it appears a show cause notice will be sent to the players with point-by-point breaches. Besides, an inquiry committee will be set up with a time-bound frame of 15 days.
