Now that the series is sealed, Kohli was asked if he is mulling a few changes in the playing eleven and he said it will be on conditions and not for the sake of experimentation.

"Changes depend on conditions not on winning or losing. Our mindset is to be ruthless and try to go 3-0 up. Our changes will depend on the conditions and not that we need to give someone a chance for the heck of it. Right now, we are in such a phase where the team we cannot experiment. When solidarity comes, we will think about it," Kohli was straightforward in his reply.

The skipper did admit that he has made some errors while playing moving deliveries outside the off-stump. Was it more of a good delivery or a mistake, Kohli said: "No it was a mistake. Not sitting here to make excuses. We get out playing flick shots, but we don't stop playing that. We get out playing cover drives and we certainly don't stop playing it. I certainly believe in that kind of mindset when I go out there to bat.

"England (where he was getting dismissed to away going deliveries) was a phase where mentally I was not into it. That can happen to anyone. Right now, I am feeling very well about my game. It's about churning out those few little areas you need to concentrate on.

"If I was not playing well, I would not be able to survive 15 balls, I am getting to 60-70 balls. Matter of concentrating a bit harder. As I said, lot of people have things to say and opinions to make, it is important as to what I am feeling in my head," Kohli explained.
