Others with Rohit what?
Recently, Kohli refuted the rumours of a rift between him and Rohit by stating, "I have seen this for too long now. Bringing personal lives into the picture. It's disrespectful after a moment. There is nothing between me and Rohit."
"We are feeding off lies. We are overlooking facts. We are turning a blind eye to all the good things that has happened. We are creating fantasies and scenarios in our head and want to accept that this is the truth."
Nonetheless, Rohit Sharma posted a cryptic tweet which might have added further fuel to fire, and it indicated that the duo are not on good terms.
"I don't just walk out for my team. I walk out for my country," Rohit Sharma tweeted.
