The Indian skipper was recently asked to conceive his dream Kabaddi team. He picked out “strong” players like MS Dhoni, KL Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja, Umesh Yadav, Bumrah and Rishab Pant But as expected there was no mention of the Indian opener, Rohit Sharma who’s also known to be athletic and rather strong.
Virat Kohli was recently spotted at the Mumbai leg of the Pro Kabaddi League and during a conversation with Star Sports, the cricketer revealed what his dream kabaddi team would look like. "It requires a lot of strength and athleticism. So I would say, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja and Umesh Yadav. Umesh is really strong. Rishabh Pant as well. I would say Bumrah because he can really work on a toe-touch. One more... I am not even going to include myself because these guys are stronger and more athletic. The last one would be KL Rahul. That's my seven," Virat Kohli said.
Virat not including Rohit Sharma’s name on the list comes as no surprise. We had apprised you of the ongoing friction between Indian skipper Virat Kohli and opening batsman Rohit Sharma
. Post a dressing room altercation, things spiraled out of proportion between the two, causing a rift more serious than expected. Soon after which, Rohit ended up unfollowing both Virat Kohli and his star wife, Anushka Sharma on social media.
And that was just the beginning! Now, this fight seems to be getting uglier by the day and senior administrators of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) are supposedly trying to douse the flames by getting one of the senior players to post messages of bonhomie within the team on social media.
A senior board functionary said that one of the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) members had spoken to a player and proposed the idea that he could write a message on social media that the team environment is “perfectly fine”.
