Virat Kohli slams India star Hardik Pandya for 'inappropriate comments'

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

The reaction and backlash in India has been staggering, and Harbhajan believed their comments implicated he and other former Indian players. Definitely it has to hit hard, they will definitely understand that things have not gone right'.

Jasprit Bumrah, the top-ranked ODI bowler in the world, who dismantled Australia in the recent Test series, has been rested from the three one-dayers.

The BCCI has advised that Pandya and Rahul, who both trained with the squad on Friday before packing their bags, have seven days to provide an "explanation as to why they should not be proceeded against".

India recorded their first Test series win on Australian soil when the rain-affected fourth Test match in Sydney ended in a stalemate.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has told the team management that the duo will not play in at least the first of three one-day internationals in Sydney on Saturday while a full inquiry is launched. Rahul had a wretched series with the bat in the Tests, and wasn't expected to make the cut into the playing XI in any case.

On being asked about the possible combination if the duo is banned, Kohli said: "From the combination and team balance point of view, yes, you'll have to think about the combination you'll need then".

He also said that when he lost his virginity, he bragged to his parents and, when at a party, pointed to multiple women and told his parents: "I have something going on with each of them". His comments were slammed as misogynistic, and drew a lot of flak from all corners especially on social media. The Committee of Administrators (CoA) that is overseeing the functioning of the BCCI has sent fresh show-cause notices to the players informing them of this development. The all-rounder, in response, said he was sincerely regretful and would not repeat the behaviour.

However, after considering their reply, the BCCI made a decision to charge both players for misconduct and indiscipline. The Ad hoc Ombudsman should possess the qualifications required for an Ombudsman under Rule 40 (1) of the BCCI constitution. The team also recommended that an ad-hoc Ombudsman, meeting the criteria set by the BCCI constitution, be appointed to adjudicate on the matter within the maximum prescribed period of 6 months from the date the player is charged.
