In­dian pair sent home

The Sunday Times - - NEWS -

TWO star In­dian crick­eters have been or­dered home to face the mu­sic after mak­ing sex­ist and in­ap­pro­pri­ate com­ments about women.

KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya have been heav­ily crit­i­cised in India and on so­cial me­dia for re­marks that have been con­demned as sex­ist and in­ap­pro­pri­ate, dur­ing which the lat­ter told how he had bragged to his par­ents about los­ing his vir­gin­ity.

The Board of Con­trol for Cricket in India said the pair would not fea­ture in “any form of cricket” and re­turn to India to an­swer charges of mis­con­duct and in­dis­ci­pline.

They will miss the en­tire three-match ODI se­ries in Aus­tralia, which started yesterday at the SCG, fol­lowed by the tour of New Zealand.
