India vs Australia 1st ODI

Rohit Sharma was recently part of two of the four Test matches that were played before the ODI series

The legal team also pointed out that CEO Rahul Johri's initial show-cause notices to Pandya and Rahul had not included specific rules under which the pair could be charged subject to an inquiry.

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

Kohli described the news as "unfortunate" and made it clear he - or anyone in the Indian cricket team for that matter - did not agree with the comments shared by the players on the light-hearted television segment that was filmed past year. Pandya is now with the Indian team in Australia where it recently recorded a historic maiden Test series win. "So it's good that we have someone like Jadeja who can do the all-rounder's role if a scenario like that occurs", Kohli said on the eve of the first ODI against Australia. And much like the Test series, this rubber offers Kohli a great chance to improve those numbers, with Australia coming off their worst calendar year in ODI history - they won just two matches in 2018.

A source close to the development said the team has been waiting to take a final call on Pandya and Rahul. Slamming both the cricketers for their sexist and misogynistic views on a TV show hosted by filmmaker Karan Johar, Virat Kohli said that they are waiting for the decision of the Board for Control of Cricket in Indian (BCCI) on Pandya and Rahul.

The captain has already made it clear that as a side, the Indian team has nothing to do with the comments made by the duo and that his side will stick to its own plans irrespective of the outcome. The team has Dhoni and Jadhav who could turn the match at will.

The World Cup winning skipper has managed 275 runs in his last 20 ODIs at an average 25 without a half-century.

In the bowling department, Jasprit Bumrah has been rested for the ODI series against both Australia and New Zealand.

Holding back on the team announcement, Kohli pointed that since a decision regarding the two cricketers is awaited, India will have to re-think the team combination heading into the first ODI in Sydney on Saturday.

Similar middle-order issues plagued the visitors when they last toured here for an ODI contest, losing 4-1 in January 2016 when Dhoni was still captain. However, the captain Virat Kohli seemed unperturbed by the news and said that the team had suitable replacements in their ranks. Marcus Stoinis who picked up eight wickets in three games against South Africa makes a return to the squad along with Peter Siddle, Jhye Richardson and Jason Behrendorff who have all impressed in the Big Bash League.
