Hardik Pandya & KL Rahul's Suspension Lifted By BCCI With Immediate Effect

BCCI lift suspensions on India's Pandya, Rahul after uproar over comments on women

All-rounder Pandya could now join up with India squad for their limited overs series in New Zealand, while batsman Rahul might play in either domestic cricket or for India A in an ongoing home series against England Lions.

CoA chairman Vinod Rai was in favour of a two-match suspension and allowing the players to return pending an inquiry by an ad-hoc ombudsman, however the other member - former India women's captain Diana Edulji - wanted an inquiry into the matter carried out by either the BCCI's office bearers and the CoA, or by an ombudsman.

It was then decided that the CoA would wait for the Supreme Court to take call on the appointment of the ombudsman, considering the BCCI had failed to fill the position lying vacant since late 2016.

With the matter rested with the Supreme Court, he would have stared at the possibility of a long spell of hibernation in view of the repeated adjournments in the Board of Control for Cricket in India case, but he may have found an unexpected saviour in a certain PS Narasimha.

New Zealand played Mitchell Santner as their sole spinner in Napier but may add Ish Sodhi to the line-up for game two following the success of India's spin pair Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, who took six wickets between them in the opener of the five-ODI series.

Dixons Carphone plc operates as an electrical and telecommunications retailer and service company. There are 5 Hold Ratings, 5 Buy Ratings, 1 Sell Ratings, no Strong Buy Ratings on the stock.

A BCCI statement said, the decision has been taken after discussing the matter with new amicus curiae P S Narsimha.

"I did not wish this issue to turn into an administrative mess". Hardik and Rahul have been punished enough and they will emerge as better human beings.

Ahead of the World Cup, the competition within the team is fierce, especially in the middle-order.

The man who conducted the controversial interview, Karan Johar, too pleaded for a closure. "I am feeling guilty, it was my platform, my show and they came as guests", Karan Johar told India Today.

The incident has also compelled BCCI to consider introducing behavioural counselling for Indian cricketers. Pandya and Rahul are expected to attend these classes with the senior team which will also have sessions on gender sensitisation.
