India stars kicked out of Australia over sexism scandal

The Indian cricket team has been preparing for the upcoming ODI series against Australia and Indian skipper Virat Kohli cleared his intentions.

After not getting a single game in Test series, Bhuvneshwar Kumar will make a comeback, and thereafter it depends if captain Kohli wants to go in with a three-man pace attack to compensate for Pandya's loss.

Where will the 1st ODI between India and Australia be played?

Kohli is yet to hear from India's board whether Pandya, a gun allrounder who is normally an automatic selection in India's one-day team, is free to play Saturday's SCG series opener.

The first one-day global is at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Saturday.

The 25-year-old Pandya and Rahul apologised for their conduct after the BCCI demanded an explanation but officials unanimously made a decision to go ahead with an inquiry.

India has had a tough last week after winning the Test series, after Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul were banned for their frivolous comments made on the talk show, Koffee With Karan 6.

Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul's comments on a popular TV show had already landed them into much trouble with the Committee of Administrators (CoA) chief Vinod Rai recommending a two-ODI ban on both the players.

"You could feel a sense of total confidence, just those guys sitting around and feeling like they have their own identity as Indian cricketers and as a team we have our own identity", he said.

Indian cricket players Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul have been on the receiving end of severe criticism following their appearance on the famous reality show hosted by Karan Johar. "Definitely it has to hit anyone hard, they will definitely understand the things that have not gone right".

"It does nothing to the spirit that we've been able to create within the changeroom and these are purely individual opinions and something which as I said is in an inappropriate space".

"You have to adjust with the situation".

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

"In no way did I mean to disrespect or hurt anyone's sentiments".

"All these external factors are not going to derail our motivation or the preparation for the World Cup".

Pandya had brazenly bragged about his prowess with women on the TV show.

"As I said, I am a little from the black side, so I have to see how they move first".
