The (Retd) Justice in his order, made public on Saturday, took into account the unconditional apology given by the players for their comments which were condemned widely. The two faced five-match ban too by the Committee of Administrators.

“The remarks made by the player, even by his own admissions, did offend the sensitivities, which ought to have been avoided,” Jain said. The BCCI said the players had shown regret and apologized for the comments but that they had to “make amends”.
