A day before the first Test against West Indies begins, Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli was on Wednesday asked to comment on Karun Nair being dropped from the squad, which has kicked up a row. Speaking at the pre-match conference, Kohli said it was not his space to comment on selection matters.
On Saturday, the Board of Cricket for Control in India (BCCI) announced a 15-member squad for the two-match Test series against West Indies, and took everyone by surprise with its decision to ignore Karun Nair for the upcoming tournament.
Nair’s omission from the Indian squad in the Test series against West Indies triggered an intense debate as he was dropped despite just warming the bench in the five-match Test series against England.
“Selectors have already spoken about it and it is not my job as a Captain to say. There are selectors doing their job. You can conveniently merge everything and make it a circle where everyone is doing their job and not focusing on what’s happening or being spoken on the outside,” said Virat Kohli.
“So, if a person has spoken about a certain thing, it should be cleared then. It shouldn’t be brought in here again. The chief selector has already spoken to the player of what I know. I don’t think I need to say anything about this.
‘’I don’t think I am in a place to comment about that, the selection is not my part of the job. as a team we are doing what we are supposed to, There are three selectors who are doing their job,” Kohli added.

Kohli also said the playing XI was always picked based on the current conditions being faced by the team.
“We have been able to pick up 20 wickets because of the fact we played people who are suited for the conditions. Batting has not been up to the mark and that is why we have not done well in England.
“No one wants to do something different every game. It is all about what is in front of you and accordingly you pick your best eleven,” said the skipper.
