In 2019, Indian cricket fans were heartbroken when India’s hopes at winning at ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 came crashing down followed by the reports of an alleged rift between the team started doing the round. It was Indian skipper Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma who made headlines for alleged disagreements and arguments in the dressing room. It was also reported that Rohit Sharma had first unfollowed Virat Kohli followed by Indian captain’s star wife, Anushka Sharma on social media. However, time passed by and things went back to normal.
Now, Sharma has broken his silence and while speaking to PTI, Rohit was asked about their alleged dressing room rift, he stated that while he didn’t know what was been written about the controversy, but he was upset that their families were involved in it. Sharma also said that Virat has also felt the same when Anushka was being dragged into the controversy, just like his wife Ritika Sajdeh.

He told PTI, “Our families are there to support us, make us feel happy. When all these things were being written about, few of my friends came and told me and believe me or not, I was just laughing. But then it went on and on and they dragged my family and that was not on. You talk about me but don't drag my family as they genuinely don't care about anything else. I think even Virat (Kohli) must have felt the same way as families are an important aspect of our lives.”
In August, Virat had spoken his mind when asked about the controversy. and called all the news a lie. Virat has said in a media briefing, "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.”
