The legal team also pointed out that CEO Rahul Johri's initial show-cause notices to Pandya and Rahul had not included specific rules under which the pair could be charged subject to an inquiry.

India's ODI record in Australia is quite poor.

While the on-field focus in Indian cricket is set to shift to white-ball cricket with the ODI series against Australia, the off-field attention has been hogged by controversial interview on an entertainment show.

Pandya and Rahul, who are both in Sydney with India's one-day squad, have found themselves in hot water over comments made during an episode of Koffee with Karan, hosted by the Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar, that aired on Sunday in India.

India playing 11 probables: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Ambati Rayudu, M S Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneswar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Khaleel Ahmed/Yuzvendra Chahal.

Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul likely to be suspended
In no way did I mean to disrespect or hurt anyone's sentiments. 'I like to watch and observe how they move. Kohli added that the two players "have understood the magnitude of what's happened".

The two will also not be considered for the three-match ODI series against Australia, starting January 12 in Sydney.

Apart from the two cricketers' misogynist comments affecting them individually, it has also affected the Indian team's balance a day before the first ODI.

"Where our batting is at the moment, the team management and I are very comfortable because we have results in ODI cricket and performances have been very good as well", he further added. The duo appeared on a talk show where their comments, Pandya's in particular - came in for widespread criticism and raised concerns over the team culture. While this is a meagre return for a batsman of his stature, the worrying aspect is Dhoni's strike-rate of 71.42, which is remarkably lower than his ODI career strike-rate of 87.89. Jasprit Bumrah has already been rested for this series, as well as the tour of New Zealand, and this allows the think-tank to conduct one final experiment with their bowling attack. The social media did not take kindly to the inappropriate statements by Pandya and Rahul, with people calling it crass and cringeworthy. The team has Dhoni and Jadhav who could turn the match at will.

There is a difference of 28.06 between India's top-order (1-3) and middle-order (4-7), the biggest among all the teams in the last two years in ODIs. However, the captain Virat Kohli seemed unperturbed by the news and said that the team had suitable replacements in their ranks.

Australia XI: Aaron Finch (captain), Alex Carey (wk) Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Nathan Lyon, Peter Siddle, Jhye Richardson, Jason Behrendorff.
