Reliving the rumours once again about the Kohli-Rohit rift, Indian vice-captain Rohit Sharma made a cryptic tweet that echoes the lack of good relations between the two big players.
"I don't just walk out for my team. I walk out for my country," Rohit Sharma tweeted on Wednesday. Analysts say the tweet implies the vice-captains frustration over the debacle against the New Zealand in the semi-final in the recent ICC World Cup 2019.
Reports of a rift between skipper Virat Kohli and vice-captain Rohit Sharma have been doing the rounds since India bowed out of the World Cup following their semi-final loss to New Zealand. But later, Kohli rejected the rumours in the press conference ahead of India's tour of the West Indies. "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," Virat Kohli said on Monday. "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," he added.
When the things seemed to go back to the normalcy, Rohit Sharma came with a tweet which once again brought back the nightmarish Semi-final match in the ICC world cup. Analysts point out the this means that something is yet to be solved between captain and vice-captain.
