We do not support inappropriate comments: Virat Kohli

India vs Australia 2019 ODIs Virat Kohli's Side Expect a Rohit Sharma Show at SCG After Sound Net Session | WATCH

MS Dhoni, Shikhar Dhawan, and Ambati Rayudu Sweat it Out in Nets Ahead of India vs Australia 1st ODI in Sydney: View Pictures. "I can definitely say that as the Indian cricket team and responsible cricketers we definitely don't align with those views and those are purely individual views".

"From the Indian cricket team point of view, any inappropriate comments that are made in that scenario are something that we definitely don't support.And that has been communicated (to the two players)", said Kohli.

With less than 24 hours before the first match of a three-game one-day series, it is hardly an ideal preparation for the tourists. "The two concerned players (have) felt what has gone wrong and they have understood the magnitude of what's happened". While Kohli clearly mentioned that the Indian team doesn't support such comments, he also spoke about waiting to get a confirmation on the availability of the pair.

However, the skipper insisted that the dressing room morale won't be affected by the controversy after the historic high of a maiden Test series triumph in Australia.

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

"So we are not too stressed as a team (about the Pandya situation) because you'll always have things that you can do in terms of creating that balance for the side".


"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 and Rahul were slammed on social for their comments on women during the interview, which were regard sexist and misogynist. The all-rounder, in response, said he was sincerely regretful and would not repeat the behaviour.

"I am not convinced with Hardik's explanation and I have recommended a two-match ban for both players". A final decision on the matter is still awaited.

According to Cricket.com.au, Jhye Richardson, Jason Behrendorff and Nathan Lyon will join the 34-year-old Siddle as the four specialist bowlers in the XI. The middle order comprises of Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell.

"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". Full squad has now hit the nets for the first time after the home series with West Indies.
