The decision came after Rai's CoA colleague, Diana Edulji, recommended suspension till further action against the two. BCCI's legal team had refused to declare the duo's comments a violation of the code of conduct. A source in the BCCI told PTI that the cricketers will be issued fresh show cause notices before a formal enquiry begins. "Whether it will be an internal committee of the BCCI or an ad hoc ombudsman who will conduct an inquiry, is yet to be ascertained," the official said.
"The Indian team management will take a call on whether they would want to keep the two with the team or send them back. There is a school of thought that they be kept with the team as the backlash back home could be severe but majority in BCCI brass is against the decision," he added.

We are still waiting for a decision to be made.” He further added, “From the Indian cricket team's point of view, this changes nothing in our beliefs in the change room, it does nothing to the spirit we have been able to create.
