All’s not well between Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli?: The Men In Blue are all set to travel to Australia for the upcoming tour to Australia next month, which will be comprising four Tests, three One-Day Internationals, and a few T20Is. Once the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League comes to an end, team India, along with the support staff, will move to Australia for the much-awaited series.
On Monday, BCCI’s Senior National Selection Committee announced the Indian squads for the upcoming tour. One thing that has left everyone in shock is the absence of ‘Hitman’ Rohit Sharma from the squad.
Well, it was quite evident that Rohit Sharma isn’t well as he had missed the last couple of Mumbai Indians’ matches. The franchise had released a statement giving an update on the injury and stated that the skipper is recovering well. The franchise had also hinted that Rohit is close to returning to action.
Therefore, BCCI’s decision not including Rohit Sharma in the playing squad has left everyone confused. And what added more to the confusion was Mumbai Indians’ tweet, which was posted moments after BCCI announced the squad. In their tweet, Mumbai Indians announced on their social media pages that Rohit Sharma was back training again.
All this has led to fans coming up with several claims. While many are claiming that his health might be one of the hurdles that have kept him away from the squad. However, there are many who are claiming that there is foul play and things aren’t well between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.
The talks on the alleged rift between Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli had surfaced once again. People are saying that the rift is the reason behind Rohit Sharma’s omission from the squad for the Australia tour.
Here, check out the reactions of Twitterati on this:
The rivalry and dispute between Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli is increasing.

Indian selectors don’t name @ImRo45 in any of the 3 formats for a tour ending mid January (the release says @BCCI medical team will monitor his progress). And the same evening @mipaltan upload pictures of him practising. What’s the catch here?

The most selfish cricketer is @imVkohli
He knows rohit sharma has the potential to lead the Indian team better than by him

If Rohit sharma return's tomorrow for @mipaltan ..
And plays against @RCBTweets ..
Than there is something very very fishy in Indian cricket..
And letting @ImRo45 out will become the biggest mistake of @imVkohli.
Becoz this is not good for the future of @BCCI @SGanguly99

I don't think that rohit sharma's place not in the Australia tour is an injured issue it's full of politics. The main leader in this politics is @RaviShastriOfc and @imVkohli . https://t.co/hZMiJ72Z6q
