India claim maiden Test series win in Australia

The BCCI has announced the dates for Australia's tour of India, which will take place in February and March after the Indian team returns from their ODI tour of New Zealand.

Kohli is yet to hear from India's board whether Pandya, a gun allrounder who is normally an automatic selection in India's one-day team, is free to play Saturday's SCG series opener.

India captain Virat Kohli has spoken on the furore surrounding Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul, explaining that the controversial comments made by the two cricketers on an India cricket show do not reflect the views of the Indian cricket team and that they nothing more than strictly personal opinions. Reacting to the comments made by the duo, Kohli said that cricketers don't align with that views and those were the opinions of the players.

Pandya and Rahul's recent appearance on an Indian talk show, during which the former had detailed how he had bragged to his parents about losing his virginity, has created a storm in their homeland.

Pandya and Rahul were slammed on social for their comments on women during the interview, which were regard sexist and misogynist. "Definitely it has to hit anyone hard, they will definitely understand the things that have not gone right".

According to a letter which is doing the rounds, Chaudhry wrote, "As far as the quantum of the punishment is concerned if the players are found guilty as per the procedures laid down in the Rules and Regulations, keeping in view the above factors and discussions, a two-match suspension seems to be merely a stop-gap arrangement especially considering that the CoA had banned Mr. Smith and Mr. Warner for a season".

Smith and Warner were barred from taking part in last year's Indian Premier League after the Cape Town cheating scandal.

"You have to adjust with the situation", Kohli said. He went on to say that Dhoni is the best in white-ball cricket.

"Definitely not going to dampen anything that we've achieved", he said.

India will play three one-dayers against Australia after winning their first ever Test series in the country 2-1.

Swing king Bhuvneshwar Kumar, overlooked throughout the Test series, headlines the list of touring quicks keen to make their mark.
