Indian cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul have been suspended pending an inquiry into their outrage-evoking comments on women during a TV show. Pandya had boasted about hooking up with multiple women and being open about it with his parents during the interview. Rahul was, however, a shade more restrained in his responses on relationships.
The cricketers, who have been in the eye of a storm following their sexist remarks on ‘Koffee with Karan’, will be returning from Australia where they were to compete in an ODI series starting Saturday.
The two had been omitted from the line-up for the opening match in Sydney.
“Both Pandya and Rahul have been suspended pending an inquiry,” Rai said.
