Aspects of last few days have triggered rumours of all not being well within the Indian Cricket team. Has Self-importance taken way above the team?
The speculations revolving around a rift between the captain and vice-captain was confirmed when Rohit Sharma ‘unfollowed’ Virat Kohli’s wife Anushka Sharma on Instagram. The vice-captain had already ‘unfollowed’ Virat Kohli earlier which was the triggering point.
Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma to her husband’s defence shared a photo on Instagram with cryptic message that said, “A wise man once said nothing. Only truth can shake hands with silence in a mess of false appearance.”
Captain Virat Kohli continues to follow Rohit Sharma but not his wife Ritika Sajdeh, while Anushka Sharma has ‘unfollowed’ both. And, the game continues as Ritika too doesn’t follow either Virat of his wife.
On Friday, the Committee of Administrators (CoA) breaks it’s silence on the complicated speculations with chief Vinod Rai telling PTI, “These are all rumours created by you guys.”
Earlier BCCI had denied of any rift between the captain and vice-captain. Although, it is known that the senior player had breached the ‘family clause’ which states the length of time a player can spend with his family during the World Cup.
