The rumors that ‘all is not well’ inside the Indian cricket team’s dressing room are refusing to die. The rumors of a rift between Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, and vice-captain, Rohit Sharma are going around ever since India’s heartbreaking exit from world cup 2019.

Recently, Virat Kohli uploaded a picture on his social media, which has now added more fuel to the fire.

Meanwhile, ahead of the upcoming tour to West Indies, Virat Kohli addressed the media and rubbished the rumors of a rift between him and Rohit. He said:

“In my opinion, it’s baffling and ridiculous to read such stuff. Public talks about how well we’ve played, and here we’re feeding lies and talking about negative things. And I’ve seen this being brought up for far too long now. It’s bizarre how people are creating these things. You enter the dressing room and witness for yourself the kind of healthy atmosphere that’s there. The lies are made to look believable.”

He added:

“We are living and breathing in getting Team India to the top, and here some people are doing there best to bring us down. The friendship and camaraderie are there for everyone to see.”

“If the atmosphere in the team is not well, the team would not have been so consistent so far. We have climbed from no. 7 to no. 1. This cannot be done without the camaraderie between the players.”
