"The suspension will however cease, if the said adjudication is not completed within six months", the legal cell's reply to the CoA read.

In such a scenario, both Pandya and Rahul's participation in the first two ODIs against Australia is still not clear, which might disturb the playing combination for at least the opening match. "That's how we are looking at it." the captain said.

Ahead of today's first ODI against Australia at the SCG, India captain Virat Kohli said the comments made by the Rahul and Pandya were not supported by their teammates.

"The two concerned players felt what has gone wrong and they have understood the magnitude". The massive outrage after the interview might prompt the Indian cricket board to bar players from such appearances on non-cricket show.

"These are purely individual opinions ... we definitely, as the Indian cricket team, do not support views like that and that has been communicated". To make the interview-from-hell worse, the drama around it has been played out openly by the Indian cricket board. Kohli added that the controversy won't affect the team's spirit and momentum which it has been able to create during the tour.

Pandya, 25, also related a story about a party he attended where he pointed to multiple women and then told his parents: "I have something going on with each of them".

Pandya posted an apology to his social media accounts claiming he had "reflected" on his comments.

"It's confirmed. The duo are being sent back". The all-rounder, in response, said he was sincerely regretful and would not repeat the behaviour. The suspension was put on hold because Diana Eduljee, the other CoA member, had sought legal advice before taking action against Pandya and Rahul.

Both Pandya and Rahul shared pictures on Instagram at the conclusion of the Test series sharing their joy about the victory. The Ad hoc Ombudsman should possess the qualifications required for an Ombudsman under Rule 40 (1) of the BCCI constitution. It is also believed that BCCI will issue fresh show cause notices to the two cricketers before a formal enquiry begins.
