Since India’s exit from ICC World Cup 2019, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma’s rift has been making headlines. We saw Sharma unfollowing Virat and his wife Anushka Sharma on social media. Next, we saw the Indian skipper pick his dream Kabaddi team and he chose MS Dhoni, KL Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja, Umesh Yadav, Bumrah and Rishabh Pant, but there was no mention of the Indian opener, further fuelling rumours of a huge tiff between the duo.

Now, Rohit has put up a picture of himself walking on the cricket field to bat and with it, he has put up a thoughtful caption which says, “I don’t just walk out for my Team. I walk out, for my country.”

Recently, in a media briefing, before leaving for the West Indies tour, the Indian captain was questioned about the recent reports and without mincing his words, he spoke his mind and called all the news a lie. Virat said, "Even I have heard a lot of in the past few days. If the team's mental state wouldn't have been good the team wouldn't have played well. If the dressing room state wouldn't have been good then I don't think we would have played so well"

When probed further about the news that their respective wives have a problem with each other, Kohli said, "In my opinion, it is baffling, to be honest. it is absolutely ridiculous to read stuff out. I have been to pubic events and public sentiments are different. Here we are feeding on lies and overlooking facts and creating fantasies and scenarios and want to accept that this is the truth. I have seen this for too long and it is sad to bring personal life in the front. I have played for 11 years and Rohit for 10 years. It baffles you as a leader as a coach as a team when lies float around and it is completely disrespectful."

He further explained, "If I don't like a person or I am insecure about a person you will see it on my face. I have always praised Rohit whenever I have had opportunity cause we have never had issues. We are working towards getting Indian team on top but here people are working on this. We have to reflect as cricketers and think are we really creating that is not well. Our camaraderie is evident on-field and you cannot get along with people if there is a problem."
