In­dian crick­eters ban­ished

Sunday Mail - - NEWS -

IN­DIAN crick­eters K.L.Rahul and Hardik Pandya have been sent home amid a sex­ism scan­dal and will miss the one-day se­ries against Aus­tralia.

The Board of Con­trol for Cricket in India has banned Rahul and Pandya for mak­ing con­tro­ver­sial com­ments about women on an episode of a TV talk show, aired dur­ing last week’s fourth Test.

Rahul was likely to serve as a re­serve bats­man through­out the three-match se­ries. Pandya, a game-break­ing all­rounder, would have been one of the first play­ers picked in India’s XI.

Rahul and Pandya have been widely crit­i­cised for a se­ries of re­marks and will an­swer charges of mis­con­duct and in­dis­ci­pline lev­elled by the BCCI.

The three-game one-day se­ries started yesterday at the SCG. The In­dian team will then pro­ceed to New Zealand.
