Mumbai: Reports of a rift between Indian skipper Virat Kohli and vice-captain Rohit Sharma have been grabbing headlines for a couple of weeks now.
Although both the players have not spoken anything on the issue, CoA has stated that the matter won't be looked after unless Kohli and Sharma themselves come up with such issues.
However, Rohit Sharma's recent activities on social media has added fuel to the fire. According to reports in Mumbai Mirror, Rohit has unfollowed the Bollywood actress and Virat Kohli’s wife Anushka Sharma on Instagram. Rohit had unfollowed captain Kohli long ago when the rumours of a rift between the duo had initiated.
The report also stated that the rift between India’s two top batsmen had started long ago.
“The problem between the two best batsmen started some years ago when Rohit and his opening partner Shikhar Dhawan left the management company that Virat is associated with. At the ICC World Cup 2019, everything appeared hunky-dory until the Indian team’s abrupt exit after the semis,” the report read.
Earlier, Team India's bowling coach Bharat Arun had stated that very few players were working as a unit, and this may be the reason behind the speculations. Bharat said the team does have some disagreements, but now it has been sorted out.
Arun, in an interview with the Sportstar, said, “It's not that we agree on everything. We have our arguments and discussions on various aspects like the composition of the team and the strategy. Everyone voices his opinion. But at the end of the day, the other person's view is respected and a collective decision is taken.”
