The 28-year-old India’s captain Kohli said on Friday at the pre-match conference ahead of the third ODI against West Indies. “From a personal point of view, I can’t pinpoint anything or give any details. We as a team only voice our opinion when asked by the BBCI.”

Kohli added, “This is a process we always go through and something we respect as a team. It’s something that is asked to the team and not in segregation. The same procedure, as and when it takes place, we will give our suggestions to the BCCI.”

Kohli said when asked same questions in a different manner, “Suggestions are given to the BCCI. There is no point in saying anything out in the open because that is for us as a team to convey to the BCCI as when we are asked.”

Speaking about the coach selection, Kohli said “Right now, we have series at hand and this is what we are focussed on. The process is taking place and that is something which is in the control of BCCI. We are not focussed on anything else at the moment. Our priority is coming here and winning the series and preparing for the game that lie ahead of us.”

When asked whether he becomes calmer and capable of handling media as his matured answers suggest, he said “It’s something that you become immune to after a while. It is something that happened quite a bit in the last few years.”

“At the end of the day, what matters is you what you do on the field. Whether media covers you or not that doesn’t matter. I think it is a distraction early on in your career but after a while, you don’t get distracted by these things.”

“You know it’s going to be there so you just have to focus on what you need to do rather thinking about there is too much attention on me. It is not in my control, it is not something that I have asked for, it’s something that’s happening, so I have to sort of take in my stride and focus on my skills.”
