We definitely don't support inappropriate comments - Virat Kohli

India vs Australia 2019 ODIs Virat Kohli's Side Expect a Rohit Sharma Show at SCG After Sound Net Session | WATCH

The team is scheduled to play five ODIs against New Zealand.

There are chances that both the players might be suspended by the BCCI for their insensitive comments and the reaction it has got from the masses.

The remarks from all-rounder Pandya, 25, and batsman Rahul, 26, were made on an Indian television show.

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). He said, "We as the Indian cricket team and responsible cricketers don't align with those views, those were individual opinions. The two concerned players (have) felt what has gone wrong and they have understood the magnitude of what's happened". Indian captain Kohli is very calm about the situation and thinks that the team has a proper replacement for the all-rounder Hardik.

"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". "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. "It does nothing to the spirit that we've been able to create within the change room and these are purely individual opinions and something as I said which is inappropriate", Kohli said.

The absence of Pandya in particular will affect the balance of the playing XI as he provides an all-round option.

"A couple of spots which might need rectification will be looked at but apart from that the idea is to make that combination and that team play together for the whole period left before the World Cup", Kohli said.

Pandya, who was in the squad that beat Australia for the first time in an away Test series, boasted about his prowess with multiple women.

Pandya and Rahul were slammed on social for their comments on women during the interview, which were regard sexist and misogynist.

On Thursday, COA chief Vinod Rai recommended a two-match ban for Pandya and Rahul but colleague Edulji referred the matter to BCCI's legal team. "It will be a sad day if he doesn't come back to Australia after this tour, he's a brilliant entertainer and someone that people pay money to come through the gates to watch".
