A journalist had asked Team India skipper about Kapil Dev’s comments at a post-match press conference in England. Without naming Kapil Dev, Sharma had said, “It’s not difficult at all for us (to ensure Kohli’s place in the playing XI) because we don’t listen to outside noise. Also, I don’t know who these experts are and why they’re called experts. I don’t get that.”
