Virat Kohli Denies a Rift With Rohit Sharma:- The whole country was left in deep shock after speculations made out that all is not well between Indian skipper Virat Kohli and star opener Rohit Sharma. On Monday before leaving to West Indies tour, Virat Kohli met the press and clarified that it is just a rumor. He categorically refuted the rumors about the issue. Rumors started about Kohli and Rohit after India's ouster from the World Cup.
"In my opinion, it's baffling. It's absolutely ridiculous to read such speculations that are out. We are turning a blind eye to all the good things that happened and creating scenarios in our head. We want to accept that this is the truth. I am playing the sport from 11 years and Rohit played for 10 years. The news left me in deep shock" said Kohli. "No individual is bigger than the game and no-nonsense is there here," said Ravi Shastri, the coach of India.
It is baffling to read (reports of an alleged rift). We are feeding off lies, overlooking facts & turning a blind eye to all the good things that have happened. It is disrespectful: @imVkohli pic.twitter.com/gl9oPm8veE— BCCI (@BCCI) July 29, 2019
