“We definitely don’t align with those views and those are purely individual views. The two concerned players (have) felt what has gone wrong and they have understood the magnitude of what’s happened. They will definitely understand the things that have not gone right. We are still waiting for a decision to be made,” he said.

“You don’t have control over these things so you have to adjust with the situation. The combinations will have to be thought about once the decision comes out (from the BCCI) and from there on,” he said.
“It does nothing to the spirit that we’ve been able to create within the change room and these are purely individual opinions and something which as I said is inappropriate,” Kohli added.
