Indian cricket team does not support views of Hardik, Rahul: Kohli

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is under mounting pressure to take swift action, having issued both players with show-cause notices.

Pandya's "going with the flow of the show" has it in it to hand him suspension from the Indian team. However, captain Virat Kohli is not too bothered as he believes Ravindra Jadeja can be slotted into the team as the all-rounder in place of Pandya. However, Kohli stressed it doesn't impact the spirit of the side. "The two concerned players (have) felt what has gone wrong and they have understood the magnitude of what's happened".

"We, as the Indian cricket, team do not support views like that and that has been communicated".

"We as the Indian cricket team and responsible cricketers don't align with those views, those were individual opinions".

With India slated to play the first of the three ODIs against Australia at Sydney from tomorrow, India captain Virat Kohli has asked about the same in the press conference.

Kohli insisted the saga had not taken the shine off India's maiden Test series win in Australia.

"Combinations will have to be thought of once the decision comes out".

"A couple of spots which might need rectification will be looked at but apart from that the idea is to make that combination and that team play together for the whole period left before the World Cup", Kohli said.

Pandya said he "got a bit carried away" as he explained his bragging about his prowess with women on the show that aired Sunday. His comments were slammed as misogynistic, and drew a lot of flak from all corners especially on social media. The all-rounder, in response, said he was sincerely regretful and would not repeat the behaviour.

On Thursday, Vinod Rai, Chairman of the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) had recommended a two-ODI ban on the duo but fellow member Diana Edulji had pushed for a legal opinion before deciding on the quantum of punishment. "It will be a sad day if he doesn't come back to Australia after this tour, he's a brilliant entertainer and someone that people pay money to come through the gates to watch". The middle order comprises of Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell.

"You have to adjust with the situation", Kohli said.

"I will be spent, the day I finish I will be totally spent and that's the reason I am going to stop playing cricket. So yeah, I feel like a young kid getting this first opportunity, so it's pretty nice to get that phone call and be around the squad and have the potential to play an ODI after a long time away".
