You will have to do a hard reset your local repository to the correct commit and then do a force push to bring your remote back in to sync with your local copy. Be aware this could ave a big impact on any colleagues who have already fetched the two commits you want to remove.

Am at the same point and tried rebase and cancel commit but nothing is done. It keeps showing that initial commit which i want to delete
