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

Kohli has distanced the team from the controversy by saying that the side does not stand by the duo on the issue.

The grievance redressal that could fall under the said Ombudsman's purview include misconduct or indiscipline by any player, umpire, team official, selector or any person associated with the BCCI, according to Rule 41 of the BCCI constitution.

On Friday, India captain Virat Kohli said the players' comments were not acceptable.

"Look those spots are up for grabs and we've been wanting to do that for a while". It's an opportunity for them.

Yousuf said he had no doubt that if Pakistan went to Australia now they would also have good chances of winning a test series for the first time.

".just to see the relief on the players' faces, and someone like Cheteshwar Pujara smiling and so happy about what he'd achieved, and Bumrah being content in his own space", he recalled. KL Rahul wasn't expected to feature in the playing 11 due to his own woeful form coupled with the well-settled pairing of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan at the top of the order.

'From the Indian cricket team point of view, any inappropriate comments that are made in that scenario are something that we definitely don't support, ' he said.

The massive outrage after the interview might prompt the Indian cricket board to bar players from such appearances on non-cricket show.

"All these external factors are not going to derail our motivation or the preparation for the World Cup". The experienced spinner is Lyon, back for another crack ahead of the World Cup, a man they want in England. India clinched the series 2-1 in the longest format, while the T20I series ended in a 1-1 draw. 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. "You can not take anything lightly". Anyways we have to bowl first now. "In Australia you don't take anything for granted.", he added.
