Indian cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul are likely to be suspended by the BCCI over comments made during a talk show.
Both men appeared on the talk show on Sunday where their comments – Pandya’s in particular – came in for widespread criticism.

The BCCI issued the players a show-cause notice and ESPNcricinfo says Pandya responded with an apology to the board.
Referring to his approach to women in nightclubs, Pandya said, “I like to watch and observe how they move. I’m little from the black side so I need to see how they move.”
He also is quoted as saying, “The other day there was a party. My parents are sitting there and (referring to the female guests) they’re like “Which one is yours?” and I sat with them and said “This, this this, everyone’s got something with me.”
His comments in particular came in for harsh criticism online.
