CoA Chairman Vinod Rai had earlier recommended a two-ODI ban for them but Diana chose to seek legal opinion before taking any action.
The BCCI selection committee will soon name their replacements for the ODI series against Australia and the tour to New Zealand. Comments and confessions about women made by the renowned team India bowler Hardik Pandya, resulted into worst consequences.
"He [Hardik] tried to look cool on TV by putting other players also on the same level". In a communication, Diana Edulji said, "It will be imperative that the players be put under suspension till a further course of action is decided for his misconduct, as was done in the case of CEO, when he was sent on leave in the sexual harassment matter".
In such a scenario, both Pandya and Rahul's participation in the first two ODIs against Australia is still not clear, which might disturb the playing combination for at least the opening match.More news: Marko Arnautovic Intends To Move To Chinese Super League This Month

On the show, the two players spoke about the women they had been with, with Pandya revealing details about how he picks up women at bars.
"They have openly said. I'm little from the black side so I need to see how they move".
Earlier on Friday, breaking his silence on the allegedly sexist comments made by Pandya and Rahul, India skipper Virat Kohli denounced the duo's statements and said the team management is still waiting for a decision on them.
As the controversy built up in the following days, Pandya took to Twitter Wednesday to issue an apology: "After reflecting on my comments on Koffee with Karan, I would like to apologise to everyone concerned who [sic] I may have hurt in any way". "I made an appearance on the chat show where I have made certain statements without realising that these could be disrespectful and offend sensitivities of viewers for which I am sincerely regretful", he wrote in his response, which is in PTI's possession. It has to hit anyone hard, they will definitely understand the things that have not gone right.
"We as the Indian cricket team and responsible cricketers do not support such views", Kohli said during the pre-match press conference in Sydney. "This definitely was going to happen".
