New Delhi: India on Friday suspended all-rounder Hardik Pandya and batsman Lokesh Rahul over comments made about women on a TV show and could force them to leave the team´s Australia tour, a cricket board source told AFP. This was the procedure the BCCI followed when its CEO Rahul Johri faced sexual harassment allegations last October.

India skipper Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri on Friday received the honorary membership of the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) for their contribution to the sport of cricket.

Rahul was a little more restrained than Pandya but did talk about getting in trouble with his parents as an 18-year-old for having condoms in his pocket.

Hardik Pandya along with his good friend and India teammate, KL Rahul made a few borderline racist and sexist comments on the show, hosted by popular filmmaker Karan Johar.

Virat Kohli-led Indian side are all set to play their first match in coloured kits in 2019 as they take on reigning World Champions Australia in first of the three-match series in Sydney on Saturday. Aaron Finch's men will be up against a formidable Indian outfit, who are brimming with confidence after winning the first ever Test series on Australian soil the previous week. BCCI's Committee of Administrators (CoA) had recommended a two-ODI match ban for the players earlier and referred the matter to BCCI's legal cell. It does nothing to the spirit that we've been able to create within the changeroom and these are purely individual opinions and something as I said which is inappropriate. Acting secretary Choudhary wanted the pair suspended "immediately". The legal team ruled out charging Pandya and Rahul for violating the BCCI's Code of Conduct, which applies strictly to on-field actions.

The controversial show has also been pulled down.

It is speculated that the BCCI might bar players from appearing on entertainment shows owing to the ongoing furore.

"Considering that the inquiry process against the concerned players has commenced and is pending, it is open for the COA to suspend the concerned players (along with their privileges and benefits) pending enquiry and proceeding into the charges of misconduct until final adjudication", the legal team said in its email to the CoA, the office bearers and the BCCI's professional management.
