After the disgraceful debacle against New Zealand in the ICC World Cup 2019, the rift between the Vice Captain Rohit Sharma and the Captain Virat Kohli is getting intensified, says CNN IBN in a report.
There were rumours on media about a rift between India skipper Virat Kohli and Vice Captain Rohit Sharma ever since India failed to win the recent World Cup held in England and Wales. It is said that there were issues between the senior players. One rumour goes like this that some senior members of the team were not happy with one cricketer breaking the ‘family clause’. Another report point out that there are two lobbies within the Indian dressing room -- one of Kohli and the other of Rohit.
Both Rohit and Kohli have not revealed anything on the issue. When queried by media about the rumours, the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) said that the matter will not be taken into consideration unless the issues are brought to them by the players themselves.
But lately, a social media activity of Rohit has added fuel to this controversy. The 32-year-old, who has not been following Kohli for quite some time now, has apparently “unfollowed” Anushka Sharma -- wife of India skipper -- on Instagram. But still, Kohli follows Rohit on the picture sharing website, but not his wife Ritika Sajdeh.
Anushka also doesn’t follow Ritika and Rohit on Instagram and same is the case with Ritika who doesn’t follow the Indian skipper and his wife.
