'Inappropriate': Indian captain Virat Kohli distances himself from offensive comments

India tour of Australia 2018 Australia will play 3-ODI match series against India
Sidney Guerrero | 11 January, 2019, 18:58

The CoA has taken on board the recommendation of the BCCI's legal team that Pandya and Rahul be suspended pending an inquiry.

After the Test series victory, India are now scheduled to play a three-match One-day International (ODI) series against Australia.

"Both Pandya and Rahul have been suspended pending an inquiry", the Committee of Administrators (CoA) chairman Vinod Rai is quoted as saying by PTI.

The cricketers boasted about hooking up with multiple women and Pandya's comments were misogynistic to the next level. On Friday, India captain Virat Kohli said their comments were not acceptable.

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.

During the first ODI in Sydney, Kohli broke his silence about the ongoing controversy of the cricketers in front of the media. "As I said I am a little from the black side (influenced by West Indies culture) so I have to see how they (women) move first".

"It will be imperative that the players be put under suspension till a further course of action is decided for this misconduct as was done in the case of CEO when he was sent on leave in the sexual harassment matter".

MS Dhoni comes back in with the gloves while the all-rounder duties will be handed to Ravindra Jadeja who has been in good form of late, and everything points towards a high-scoring game here so Rohit Sharm and Virat Kohli will be keen to continue their strong form in this format.

"The two concerned players have felt what has gone wrong and they have understood the magnitude of what's happened".

"Definitely it has to hit anyone hard, they will definitely understand the things that have not gone right".

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

'After reflecting on my comments on Koffee with Karan, I would like to apologise to everyone concerned who I may have to hurt in any way, ' he posted.

On his official Twitter page, Pandya said he got "carried away" on the show and did not mean any "disrespect" with his comments.
