New Delhi: Indian skipper Virat Kohli ahead of the first Test against West Indies, starting from Thursday (October 4) said that it is not the right time to comment on the controversial decision of leaving out Karun Nair from the Test squad and all the decisions are not being made from ‘one place’.“Selectors have already spoken about it and it is not my place 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 people are saying on the outside,” Kohli said on the eve of the series-opener against the West Indies.Nair’s omission from the two-match Test squad for the home series against Windies triggered an outrage among the fans as he was dropped despite warming the bench in the recently concluded five-match Test series against England. Hanuma Vihari got the nod for the fifth Test ahead of Nair.“If a person has spoken about it already, it should not 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 comment on that.“Selection is not my job. As a team, we are doing what we are supposed to. Everyone should be aware of their respective jobs,” Kohli added.ALSO READ: UCL Game-week 2 Round Up: Real Madrid’s shock defeat and moreThe 29-year-old swashbuckling batsman said that there are no joint decisions and all the personnel are aware of their respective jobs.The skipper asserted that no joint decisions are taken and all stakeholders are aware of their respective jobs.“People should also realise that it is not a joint thing everywhere. That is the confusion right now where people are combining everything and thinking everything is happening from one place which is not true,” said Kohli, dismissing the perception that captain and the rest of the team management have a significant say in selection matters.ALSO READ: ‘Finding it difficult to understand parameters of team selection’Recently, Harbhajan Singh had slammed the logic behind dropping Nair following Chief Selector MSK Prasad’s clarified the omission of the Karnataka batsman. read more

NBA Finals 2019: ‘You’ve just got to dig deep,’ Klay Thompson says of his return to series Green conceded that rattling Kawhi Leonard isn’t likely, as the 6-7 wing is averaging 31.1 points in the championship series. He lit the Warriors up for a game-high 36 points on Friday. “I don’t think you’re ever going to rattle Kawhi,” Green said. “Not sure we used that word one time in our scouting report, we’re going to rattle him. But you just try to make him take tough shots, and you live with the results.”But Green also suggested there is still hope Kevin Durant (calf) could return to help tip the scales in Golden State’s favor.”As far as KD (Durant), there’s been hope that he will come back the whole series. So that’s not going to change now. Obviously we hope to have him, but we’ll see what happens. We don’t make that final call, his — he don’t really even make that final call. His body will tell him if he can get out there or not. And if he can, great; and if not, you still got to try to find a way to win the next game.”The Warriors have also felt the impact of injuries to Kevon Looney (collarbone) and Klay Thompson (hamstring), while DeMarcus Cousins and Andre Iguodala seem to be hobbled as well. Green’s averages of 13.5 points, 9.0 rebounds and 8.8 assists haven’t been enough to combat his team’s lack of depth in the final round of the postseason.All the chips will be down at Scotiabank Arena in Game 5, and Golden State hasn’t felt pressure like this in quite some time. Green, the emotional leader of the team, elaborated on what he’s doing to prepare the locker room for the tough times that might be ahead.”Just talk to the guys, don’t read the press clippings, don’t watch the TV, like just believe what we believe and go out there and give it what we got,” Green said. “And if we fail, you live with the results, but just leave it all out there.” NBA Finals 2019: Raptors coach Nick Nurse remaining grounded despite 3-1 lead Draymond Green thinks the Warriors can come back from their 3-1 deficit in the NBA Finals to top the Raptors.Golden State blew a 3-1 lead to the Cavaliers in the 2016 Finals, but Green believes the two-time defending champions can complete an unlikely comeback this time around. “That’s important to have that pride, to have the faith in what we’re capable of,” Green told reporters Friday. “We just got to take it one game at a time. We got to win one game. We win one, then we’ll build on that. But I’ve been on the wrong side of 3-1 before, so why not make our own history?””I’ve been on the wrong side of 3-1 before, so why not make our own history?”—Draymond Green pic.twitter.com/U1NGE7XzBB— SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) June 8, 2019The Warriors’ 105-92 loss in Game 4 was their second consecutive defeat at Oracle Arena. It could be the last game the team plays in Oakland if it doesn’t extend the series with a win on Monday, as Golden State is relocating to San Francisco next season. Related News read more
