Kohli says Pandya's sexist comments not reflective of Indian cricket team

MS Dhoni Stumps Rain In Australia By Practising Indoors. Watch

Indian Cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul have been receiving a lot of hate over their comments on Karan Johar's Chat show Koffee With Karan 6.

While the controversy is dealt with by the Committee of Administrators (CoA), which is overseeing the BCCI, it creates a headache for Kohli ahead of the first ODI on Saturday, especially the uncertainty around Pandya's availability given how key he is to balancing the India line-up as the seam-bowling allounder in the middle order. Indian captain Kohli is very calm about the situation and thinks that the team has a proper replacement for the all-rounder Hardik. "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 the two concerned players felt what has gone wrong and they have understood the magnitude of what's happened", said Virat who is married to Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma.

While Rahul has not been a regular in the 50-over set up, Pandya has featured when fit. "And anything should not be taken away from that because as I said, those are pretty much individual opinions." the Indian skipper stated. Check out what India Cricket team captain Virat Kohli has to say.

"We are still waiting for a decision to be made but from the Indian cricket team point of view this changes nothing in terms of our beliefs in the change room".

Cleveland Browns Mythbusters: Freddie Kitchens edition
According to a new report, the Browns actually wanted to hire McCarthy, but the offer came with a stipulation and he declined it. They ended the year 5-3 and scored below 20 points just twice - it happened four times in the first eight games under Haley.

Pandya and Rahul both trained with the squad on Friday at the SCG but the allrounder made a beeline for the rooms after his hit, refusing to stop for hundreds of fans keen for autographs and selfies. Pandya had later issued an apology, saying he got carried with the nature of the show.

Pandya also boasted about not knowing women's names at parties and telling his parents the day he lost his virginity. In no way did I mean to disrespect or hurt anyone's sentiments.

India has a long white-ball season lined up ahead of the marquee tournament in England this summer, with three ODIs in Australia and another five ODIs in New Zealand along with a three-match T20I series there as well.

"You are just watching and observing how they move as I said I am a little from the black side (influenced by West Indies culture) so I have to see how they (women) move first", he said. "Exhausted of this boys will be boys attitude", Ekta Chauhan, a Twitter user, wrote.
