Hardik Pandya’s Father Defends His Son Over Controversial Remarks

India captain Virat Kohli has spoken on the furore surrounding Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul, explaining that the controversial comments made by the two cricketers on an India cricket show do not reflect the views of the Indian cricket team and that they nothing more than strictly personal opinions. The Ad hoc Ombudsman should possess the qualifications required for an Ombudsman under Rule 40 (1) of the BCCI constitution.

He added, "The players must be immediately suspended pending a proper inquiry and must be allowed to join the team (if selected) only once they have gone through a proper sensitisation in addition to serving a ban, if imposed upon them".

"These are purely individual opinions. we definitely, as the Indian cricket team, do not support views like that and that has been communicated".

A source close to the development said the team has been waiting to take a final call on Pandya and Rahul.

Amazon Launches Free Streaming Service ‘IMDb Freedive’
That said, Freedive is a bit different from current streaming sites insofar that it's completely free and, in turn, ad-supported. Amazon , which acquired IMDb in 1998, claims the site has more than 250 million unique monthly users worldwide.

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

"Both Pandya and Rahul have been suspended pending an inquiry", CoA chief Vinod Rai told PTI.

With less than 24 hours before the first match of a three-game one-day series, it is hardly an ideal preparation for the tourists. "So it's good that we have someone like Jadeja who can do the all-rounder's role if a scenario like that occurs", Kohli said on the eve of the first ODI against Australia. "We are pretty comfortable as a side and any combination that we go in with", he said. "That's how we are looking at it, the combinations will have to be looked at when the decision comes out and from there on we'll see what needs to be done about the whole situation".

As per the new BCCI constitution, the power to sanction players for indiscipline or misconduct is to rest with the BCCI's Apex Council.

Actor Craig McLachlan Has Been Charged With Indecent Assault
McLachlan was sacked from the upcoming Rocky Horror Show production and also from the ABC's The Doctor Blake Mysteries . McLachlan faced allegations of misconduct by fellow cast members while starring in the Rocky Horror Show in 2014.

"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". The legal team has suggested that the CoA, as the authorised head of the BCCI now, could substitute for the Apex Council.

Pandya and Rahul both trained with the squad on Friday at the SCG but the allrounder made a beeline for the rooms after his hit, refusing to stop for hundreds of fans keen for autographs and selfies.

"The two concerned players felt what has gone wrong and they have understood the magnitude", Kohli said.
