The Indian selectors were compelled to name substitutions after the Committee of Administrators suspended Pandya and Rahul for their questionable remarks on a TV appear.

CoA split over request methodology
Then, both Pandya and Rahul have seven days to react to the showcause see issued to them by the CoA on Friday. The two-part CoA including Vinod Rai and Diana Edulji is making sense of who should complete the request once the players present their clarifications.

Rai is agreeable to following the BCCI lawful group’s assessment, which directs that the CEO connect with the players and look for an “early” clarification from them so the request can be assisted.

Rai, who is abroad, has not yet reacted.
