Rumours of rift between Virat & Rohit Sharma grow
July 28, 2019
The media reports of the alleged rift between India cricket captain Virat Kohli and vice-captain Rohit Sharma have grown after Bollywood star and Virat's wife Anushka Sharma made a mysterious comment on social media.
Rohit, who followed Anushka on Instagram un-followed the actress and Virat after a reported fall-out after the semi-final defeat in the recent ICC World Cup.
There have been rumours that the two senior players have not been getting along and while neither has said anything publicly, Rohit's move to unfollow Virat and Anushka on Instagram gives a hint about what may be happening.
Anushka shared this cryptic message on social media after Rohit unfollowed her.
A wise man once said nothing. Only truth can shake hands with silence in a mess of false appearances. - Anushka Sharma, Instagram Stories
Virat is still following Rohit Sharma on instagram but has stopped following his wife Ritika Sajdeh. Anushka has stopped following both of them.
Meanwhile, the Committee of Administrators (CoA) chief Vinod Rai has dimissed any reports of a rift. Speaking to the media, Rai said, "These are all stories created by your guys."
There are also rumours that the Indian cricket team is divided between two groups - one backing Virat and the other supporting Rohit. The rift between the players apparently started after Rohit and Shikhar Dhawan left the management company Virat is associated with, leading to a cold war.
