Pandya, Rahul bans lifted

India's cricket board lifted on Thursday suspensions on Hardik Pandya and Lokesh Rahul, imposed after comments about women during a talk show saw the players ordered home from a tour of Australia.

Pandya boasted on the TV celebrity show earlier this month about his success with multiple women as Rahul sat next to him, prompting uproar on social media.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) subsequently suspended the all-rounder and batsman and ordered them to return home from the team's tour of Australia.

The players apologised for their conduct following the uproar.
