They will be sent back to India. "If they can book tickets then tomorrow they will be leaving (for India) or latest by day after", a senior BCCI official told PTI.

The duration of the suspension is not yet known, but it is likely the pair will miss the remainder of the Australia tour and the upcoming limited-overs tour of New Zealand.

According to reports, the two will be issued fresh showcause notices before a formal enquiry begins and it is yet to be decided whether it will be an internal committee of the BCCI or an ad hoc ombudsman who will be conducting it.

The remarks from all-rounder Pandya, 25, and batsman Rahul, 26, were made on an Indian television show.

Edulji had initially suggested a two-match suspension for the duo but referred the matter to the legal cell after Vinod Rai agreed with her and recommended the same.

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.

"Based on the legal opinion and till the time the final procedure is laid down to address this issue, will recommend that a communication be sent to the concerned players and the team immediately", Edulji said in response to the legal team's email on Friday morning, which has been accessed by ESPNcricinfo.

"From the Indian cricket team's point of view, this changes nothing in our beliefs in the change room, it does nothing to the spirit we have have been able to create".

On being asked about the possible combination if the duo is banned, Kohli said: "From the combination and team balance point of view, yes, you'll have to think about the combination you'll need then".

The social media did not take kindly to the inappropriate statements by Pandya and Rahul, with people calling it crass and cringeworthy.

Pandya and Rahul were speaking on popular celebrity talk show Koffee with Karan, which is hosted by Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar.

Hardik Pandya revealed that he even informed his parents that he lost his virginity by telling them, "Aaj mai kar ke aaya". He wrote, "After reflecting on my comments on Koffee with Karan, I would like to apologize to everyone concerned who I may have hurt in any way".
