While Kohli conceded the scandal has "hit hard", he was confident India's preparation for the one-dayers would not be disrupted.

"This changes nothing in terms of our beliefs in the change room," he said.

"It does nothing to the spirit that we’ve been able to create within the changeroom and these are purely individual opinions and something which as I said is in an inappropriate space.

“We definitely, as the Indian cricket team, don't support views like that."

Pandya offered an apology via Twitter on Tuesday.

"After reflecting on my comments on Koffee with Karan, I would like to apologise to everyone concerned who I may have hurt in any way," Pandya wrote.

"Honestly, I got a bit carried away with the nature of the show.
