A shocking revelation came into lighting regarding India’s two senior cricketers.
Rohit-Virat have been one of the most successful duos for Team India who have won countless number of games But India’s fielding coach R Sridhar revealed that things went bitter after 2019 World Cup between Rohit Sharma & Virat Kohli and how former head coach Ravi Shastri played an important role in calming up the matter.
“After the 2019 World Cup, there was a lot of bad press about what allegedly happened in the dressing room during our campaign and following our loss to New Zealand in the semifinal. We were informed that there was a Rohit camp and a Virat camp, and that someone had unfollowed another on social media—stuff that could be unsettling if you allowed it to fester,” Sridhar said.
“We landed in the United States (US) some 10 days after the World Cup for a T20 series against the West Indies in Lauderhill. One of the first things Ravi [Shastri, the then head coach] did on his arrival was to call Virat and Rohit to his room and impress upon them that for Indian cricket to be healthy, they needed to be on the same page. ‘Whatever happened on social media, that’s all fine, but you two are the most senior cricketers, so this must stop.” Sridhar added.
