Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul were suspended from the national team after their controversial appearance on Karan Johar's chat show Koffee With Karan.

India's cricket board has lifted the suspensions of Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul with immediate effect.

"Since the adjudication of all allegations of misconduct against any cricketer registered with, inter alia, the BCCI is required to be undertaken by the BCCI Ombudsman, whose appointment is pending directions of the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India, the CoA is the of the view that the interim suspension orders dated 11.01.2019 should be presently lifted with immediate effect".

Two of the three office bearers had then pointed out the ombudsman could only be appointed by the BCCI, so it was decided the CoA would wait for the Supreme Court to appoint one, with the BCCI having had the role vacant since 2016.

"The decision has been taken with the concurrence of the Learned Amicus Curiae, Mr. P.S. Narasimha".

In case Karnataka makes it to the Ranji Trophy finals, the 26-year-old Rahul is now expected to open the innings with Mayank Agarwal.

The duo had been in limbo since their suspension on January 11 because of a disagreement in the next course of action between the board's two-member Committee of Administrators (CoA).

The idea of letting the players get on with the game was first mooted by BCCI acting president CK Khanna, who wanted the suspensions to be lifted pending inquiry.

The CoA stated that the decision to suspend the two players was taken under Rule 46 of the approved BCCI Constitution which covers players' conduct that can bring the Board into disrepute.

"I did not wish this issue to turn into an administrative mess".

Pandya's return to the mix with the World Cup on the horizon will come as big relief to the team.

After the incident, the BCCI is considering to introduce behavioural counselling for the Indian cricketers. "There will also be sessions on gender sensitivity", a senior BCCI official told news agency PTI on conditions of anonymity.
