Inappropriate comments have cast a shadow over India's Test celebrations and ODI preparations, with Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul facing suspension amid a sexism scandal. The Ad hoc Ombudsman should possess the qualifications required for an Ombudsman under Rule 40 (1) of the BCCI constitution.

Kohli is yet to hear from India's board whether Pandya, a gun allrounder who is normally an automatic selection in India's one-day team, is free to play Saturday's SCG series opener.

"These are purely individual opinions - we definitely, as the Indian cricket team, do not support views like that and that has been communicated". The repercussion of the remarks, especially those made by all-rounder Hardik Pandya has been far-reaching with even the country's cricket board mulling a two-match ban on the duo.

Choudhary agreed with Edulji's view in a separate email.

Pandya and Rahul's recent appearance on an Indian talk show, during which the former had detailed how he had bragged to his parents about losing his virginity, has created a storm in their homeland.

"Definitely not going to dampen anything that we've achieved", he said.

On Thursday, Vinod Rai, Chairman of the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) had recommended a two-ODI ban on the duo but fellow member Diana Edulji had pushed for a legal opinion before deciding on the quantum of punishment. Acting secretary Choudhary wanted the pair suspended "immediately".

KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya are embroiled in an off field controversy and won't be playing the Sydney ODI. "Combinations will have to be thought of once the decision comes out", Kohli added. The legal team has suggested that the CoA, as the authorised head of the BCCI now, could substitute for the Apex Council.

"The provisions of the earlier contracts and the practice in place would have required these contracted players to seek permission to appear on the show". Pandya and Rahul were seen talking about their relationships, crushes, favourite movies, actors and actresses.

"Considering that the inquiry process against the concerned players has commenced and is pending, it is open for the COA to suspend the concerned players (along with their privileges and benefits) pending enquiry and proceeding into the charges of misconduct until final adjudication", the legal team said in its email to the CoA, the office bearers and the BCCI's professional management.
