Don't align with those views: Kohli on Pandya's sexist remarks

January 11, 2019 09:09


Indian skipper Virat Kohli broke his silence on the ongoing controversy involving KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya over their sexist comments on a talk show, Koffee with Karan. 

Reacting to the comments made by the duo, Kohli said that Indian team cricketers don't align with that views and those were the opinions of the players (Pandya and Rahul).

On the eve of the first ODI against Australia in Sydney, Kohli said," We as the Indian cricket team and responsible cricketers don't align with those views, those were individual opinions. We are still waiting for a decision to be made."

"From the Indian cricket team's point of view, this changes nothing in our beliefs in the change room, it does nothing to the spirit we have have been able to create. Combinations will have to be thought of once the decision comes out," he added. 

Pandya, along with teammate KL Rahul, face potential suspension from the BCCI for their controversial comments on women on the chat show Koffee With Karan.
