On the show, he bragged about not asking the names of women at parties and how he watched them move on the dance floor.

Speaking to India Today, Gavaskar pointed out that both Pandya and Rahul haven't been vital cogs of Virat Kohli's Team India, who are now in Australia for the last leg of their Australian tour - a three-match ODI series, starting January 12 in Sydney. "I made these statements in the flow of the show and had not comprehended the extent to which my statements would be found offensive", Pandya had said in his response. "At this point, I can not commit what action will be taken", Chairman of the Committee of Administrators that runs the BCCI, Vinod Rai, told PTI. And then play two more ODIs.

Both the players are now in the limited-overs squad in Australia and should any decision be taken it will have a direct impact on their availability and careers in the longer run. BCCI boss Rai termed the comments made by Pandya and Rahul as crass, made in bad taste and unacceptable.

With CoA member Diana Edulji seeking legal opinion before weighing in on the issue, it remains unclear what the quantum of punishments will be. "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 sensitization in addition to serving a ban if imposed upon them", he concluded. There is an overriding impression that the duo, contracted that they are with the BCCI, should have sought approval to appear on the show.

".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. If so, by whom?" he asked in his response to Edulji. "It was an entertainment show and his comments were made in a light- hearted manner. he was only looking to entertain the audience".

Meanwhile, veteran cricket commentator and expert Harsha Bhogle said that while it was good to issue a show cause notice to the offending cricketers, BCCI should also sensitise "young players to life beyond the dressing room". It is said that the Board may now bar players from making such appearances.

According to a latest report in Hindustan Times, BCCI treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry has said that the apology from Pandya is insincere and he has requested for the entire team to go through a sensitization process.
