Rahul and Pandya's controversial comment over women in the celebrity talk show 'Koffee With Karan' has brought trouble for them on the professional front as well.
Vinod Rai, chief of the committee administrators proposed a two-ODI ban on Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul for their controversial comments, he said "I am not convinced with Hardik's explanation and I have recommended a two-match ban for both players.
Diana Edulji,another COA associate has referred the matter to the BCCI's legal cell.
COA chief Vinod Rai further said,"Diana has sought legal opinion whether the duo can be banned. So, obviously a decision will be taken once she gives her nod.As far as I am concerned, the comments were crass, in bad taste and unacceptable."
"However the final decision will be taken once Diana gives her go ahead," Rai adeded.
It is learnt that Edulji has also sought the opinion of BCCI acting president CK Khanna, acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary and treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry on the issue.
The 25-year-old all-rounder has provoked a backlash after the comments he made on the celebrity chat show hosted by filmmaker Karan Johar, in which he appeared with India teammate K L Rahul.
The Committee of Administrators on Wednesday issued a show-cause notice to Indian cricketers Hardik Pandya and K L Rahul and sought an explanation within 24 hours for their remarks on women on a TV show.
Pandya, in response, said he was sincerely regretful and would not repeat the behaviour.
Rahul, the more restrained of the two in the show hosted by film-maker Karan Johar, has not yet reacted to the social media storm.
India are scheduled to start a three-match ODI series against Australia from Saturday.
