Everyone should be aware of their respective jobs," Kohli said. The second Indian to score a Test triple-century, Karun Nair was picked in the original squad for the England series but did not make it to the playing XI for the entire series.

"Selectors have already spoken about it and it is not my place to say. There are selectors doing their job," Kohli further added.

"You can conveniently merge everything and make it a circle where everyone is doing their job and not focusing on what people are saying on the outside," the Indian captain remarked.
