Batsman Rahul and all-rounder Pandya had been heavily criticised in India and on social media for remarks that were widely condemned as sexist and inappropriate.

Koffee with Karan Season 6's most talked about episode has been the latest one, which featured Indian cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul. "Cricket is very complicated game and I've enjoyed watching him really simplify it still in this modern age", he said.

"As I said, I am a little from the black side, so I have to see how they move first". "Then I can imagine".

On the show, Pandya had boasted about hooking up with multiple women and being open about it with his parents. In no way did I mean to disrespect or hurt anyone's sentiments.

When it comes to the record books, India have played 16 matches against Australia here and has won only two and the last time both teams played at this venue, It was India who emerged victorious.

When asked about Jasprit Bumrah's absence, as the pacer has been rested for this series, Finch replied, "Bumrah has played a huge part for their one-day side, or all their sides".

"The duo is now called upon to provide an explanation as to why they should not be proceeded against for misconduct and indiscipline under Rule 41 of the BCCI Constitution within a period of 7 (seven) days", the BCCI said in a statement on Friday.

Sri Lanka win toss, elect to bowl
New Zealand will have a chance to register win in all the three formats over Sri Lanka as the two teams play the one-off T20I. New Zealand have added spinner Mitchell Santner to their squad who is making a comeback after a knee injury.

The Indian cricket team has been preparing for the upcoming ODI series against Australia and Indian skipper Virat Kohli cleared his intentions.

"The two concerned players felt what has gone wrong and they have understood the magnitude". He said, "We as the Indian cricket team and responsible cricketers don't align with those views, those were individual opinions".

After losing the Test series in convincing fashion even if the scoreline only read 2-1, Australia will be desperate to compete hard in the one-day series now although their form in this format of the game is poor in recent times also. On the other hand, India's win/loss ratio of 3.500 was the best in ODIs past year.

The 26-year-old Rahul wasn't expected to play at the SCG but Pandya was considered a lock to bat in the middle-order and bowl his seamers.

Finch said that the ODI series is a chance for their batting line-up to start afresh after the collective failure in the previous outings.

India: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Siraj, K. Khaleel Ahmed, Mohammed Shami.

"You have to adjust with the situation". If it's really dry and a finger spinner is in favour of being featured, we will go with the same combination that we have been going with.
