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

"This IPL will be about monitoring the players keeping the World Cup in mind
Noah Ferguson | 11 January, 2019, 17:06

If the two players are banned, the decision might lead to a few changes in the combination of the playing XI that would have featured in the first ODI, particularly with all-rounder Pandya's place.

"These are purely individual opinions - we definitely, as the Indian cricket team, do not support views like that and that has been communicated". The team also recommended that an ad-hoc Ombudsman, meeting the criteria set by the BCCI constitution, be appointed to adjudicate on the matter within the maximum prescribed period of 6 months from the date the player is charged.

While the debate has caused a lot of uproars, Hardik Pandya's father Himanshu Pandya has come out in support of his son.

Edulji had initially suggested a two-match suspension for the duo but referred the matter to the legal cell after Vinod Rai agreed with her and recommended the same.

Pandya and Rahul were speaking on popular celebrity talk show Koffee with Karan, which is hosted by Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar.

He added, "The players must be immediately suspended pending a proper inquiry and must be allowed to join the team (if selected) only once they have gone through a proper sensitisation in addition to serving a ban, if imposed upon them".

"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 and Rahul were slammed on social for their comments on women during the interview, which were regard sexist and misogynist. He wrote, "After reflecting on my comments on Koffee with Karan, I would like to apologize to everyone concerned who I may have hurt in any way".

"Honestly, I got a bit carried away with the nature of the show".

"You are just watching and observing how they move 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", he said.

Pandya also boasted about not knowing women's names at parties and telling his parents the day he lost his virginity. In no way did I mean to disrespect or hurt anyone's sentiments. He also added that the Indian team management will take a call on whether they would want to keep the two with the team or send them back.

It is speculated that the BCCI might bar players from appearing on entertainment shows owing to the ongoing furore. "If so, by whom?" he asked.
