Let Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul play while inquiry is on: BCCI president

New Delhi: acting president has urged the Committee of Administrators (CoA) to lift the suspension on and for their sexist remarks.
Khanna said calling the SGM to appoint an ombudsman to investigate the two players’ conduct, as demanded by Board officials, wouldn’t be right as the Supreme Court is due to take up the issue next week.
Pandya and Rahul have been suspended pending an inquiry for their sexist comments on a TV chat show.
“They made a mistake, and they have already been suspended and called back from the Australia series. They have also submitted an unconditional apology,” Khanna wrote in a letter to the running the BCCI.
“I suggest that pending inquiry we reinstate both the cricketers into the Indian squad immediately and allow them to join the team in New Zealand at the earliest,” he added.
The CoA wants the Supreme Court to appoint an ombudsman to decide the fate of the two players, who have already missed the ODI series against Australia and are set to sit out of the tour of New Zealand as well.
