"I just keep my cool and focus on my game rather than thinking about my selection. Selection matters are not in my hands but what is in my hand is my own performance. My job is to perform for the country and keep myself focussed on job at hand," Ojha said in an interview.
"These types of thoughts fill your mind with negativity and hamper your performance. It's important to remain positive and leave selection matters in the hands of our selectors," the left-arm spinner added.
Ojha doesn't want to put too much pressure on himself on his non-selection.
"If I start thinking about all this (did not get a game in South Africa and was not part of the New Zealand tour), seriously, I would be putting a lot of pressure on myself. I don't want these factors to effect my game. I will wait for my chances and I am confident that one day I will get it. I don't want to get into the negative side of my thoughts,” Ojha said.
"Selection matters are something which you cannot question. My job is to perform whenever I get a chance to don the national colours," he said.
