India cricketers suspended over inappropriate TV comments

BCCI Announces Fixtures For Home Series Against Australia Which Begins February 24

The duo have been suspended for an undisclosed length of time, with the pair set to miss the one-day worldwide series in Australia starting on Saturday and the following limited-overs tour of New Zealand.

"The duo will now return to India and an inquiry and proceedings will be made against them for misconduct and indiscipline that have been initiated under rule 41 of the BCCI constitution".

After considering their reply, it was decided that the BCCI would proceed against both for misconduct and indiscipline.

Kohli distanced himself and his team from the views that Pandya and Rahul, who was unlikely to play this weekend regardless, had expressed about women.

The pair will miss the entire three-match ODI series in Australia, which started on Saturday at the SCG, followed by the tour of New Zealand. Captain Aaron Finch will lead a new-look side as they eye on the World Cup later this year. They can't go out and say such things while pretending to be cool.

GM rejects Unifor's proposals to keep Oshawa plant open past 2019
GM said in a letter to Dias that it had already considered several proposals including those the union raised at the meeting. The union is also considering its legal options, Dias said.

He further added, "From the Indian cricket team's point of view, this changes nothing in our beliefs in the change room, it does nothing to the spirit we have have been able to create".

Rahul was likely to serve as a reserve batsman throughout the three-match series but Pandya, a game-breaking allrounder, would have been one of the first players picked in India's XI. Rahul, in any case, wasn't in contention for a first XI berth. "Combinations will have to be thought of once the decision comes out".

The show, which aired last Sunday in India, featured Pandya boasting about his exploits with women, his behaviour at nightclubs and telling a story about the day he lost his virginity. His comments were slammed as misogynistic, and drew a lot of flak from all corners especially on social media.

However, after considering their reply, the BCCI chose to charge both players for misconduct and indiscipline. "The Ombudsman shall be retired Judge of the Supreme Court or a retired Chief Justice of the High Court so appointed by the BCCI after obtaining his/her consent and on terms as determined by the BCCI in keeping with the dignity and stature of the office".

The BCCI is set to name replacements in due course. The constitution specifies that the BCCI CEO seek an explanation from the players through an initial show-cause notice and the CEO's report is to be forwarded by the Apex Council to an Ombudsman, who determines what sanctions are binding.
