KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya were both suspended for 5 ODI's after making controversial statements on a talk show.

KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya told to donate Rs 20 Lakh each

Both KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya had apologized without seeking to justify their actions and have assured to hold higher standards from hereon.  In the interest of justice, the two players have been told to donate Rs 20 Lakh each.

This donation will be to "pay INR 1 Lakh each to most-deserving widows of 10 constables each of para-military forces and to deposit Rs 10 Lakh each to a fund created for promotion of cricket among the blind".

Both these players would have learned their lessons and will be careful about handling themselves in public hereafter. They have been selected for India's Worldcup squad as well and hence will look to focus on that now.
