At a press conference when quizzed about the same, Indian Cricket team captain Virat Kohli said, “I can definitely say that as the Indian cricket team and responsible cricketers we definitely don’t align with those views and those are purely individual views.” Virat also said that how the team doesn’t support any kind of comments made by the two cricketers on the chat show. “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 and the two concerned players felt what has gone wrong and they have understood the magnitude of what’s happened,” said Virat who is married to Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma.

While addressing the media ahead of the ODI series opener in Sydney, Virat Kohli further added, “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 been able to create.”

A three-match ODI series in Australia starts on Saturday, 12 January.

Meanwhile, here’s what Hardik tweeted in his apology, "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. In no way did I mean to disrespect or hurt anyone's sentiments. Respect."
