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

Rohit harps on team show

In the recent episode of Koffee With Karan, Indian cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul were the guests and for his actions on the show, Hardik has been getting a lot of flak on social media for his "misogynist", "sexist", and "racist" comments.

With Pandya's words clearly depicting his disrespect for women, he was issued a show cause notice from the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India). A certain starter otherwise, India would look to play an extra fast bowler (instead of second wrist spinner) and Ravindra Jadeja to provide apt balance to the playing XI. "We are still waiting for a decision to be made", Kohli said at the press conference ahead of the first ODI against Australia in Sydney on Friday.

"So we are not too stressed as a team (about the Hardik Pandya situation) because you'll always have things that you can do in terms of creating that balance for the side. That's how we are looking at it." the captain said. "Combinations will have to be thought of once the decision comes out", Kohli added. "...just to see the relief on the players' faces, and someone like Cheteshwar Pujara smiling and so happy about what he'd achieved, and Bumrah being content in his own space", he recalled. And all these external factors are not going to derail our motivation or the preparation for the World Cup.

"These are purely individual opinions. we definitely, as the Indian cricket team, do not support views like that and that has been communicated".

Responding to a query on whether he would consider playing in the Australian Big Bash league (BBL) after retiring provided BCCI lifts the bar on its players playing in worldwide leagues, Kohli said he would not be around for such a stint. "The bowling has been balanced too".

"Look I don't know whether that stance is going to change in the future". In one-day cricket, any team can beat you on any given day.

Kohli described the news as "unfortunate" and made it clear he - or anyone in the Indian cricket team for that matter - did not agree with the comments shared by the players on the light-hearted television segment that was filmed previous year.

".after a series like that and a high like that, it's good to have another big event like the World Cup in sight because that keeps you motivated.we're pretty focused on what we need to do and we understand where we need to head as a team", he said. "And we feel as a one-day team we are on the right track, and are on our full strength", he said.

"The two concerned players felt what has gone wrong and they have understood the magnitude", Kohli said.
