“I don’t just walk out for my team. I walk out for my country “- Rohit Sharma

Rohit Sharma Tweet: “I don’t just walk out for my team. I walk out for my country,” tweeted Rohit Sharma yesterday, just a day after Virat Kohli denied reports of a rift between him and Hitman Rohit Sharma.

His tweet clearly reflected his unprecedented vision for the Indian team, and his love for nation and cricket, exclaiming he bats for India, and any rift will not impact him. The tweet also was vocal about his intent to turn a blind eye to all the distractions that will stop him from performing at the international level.

Kohli, during the press conference before team India departed for West Indies also stated “In my opinion, it’s baffling. It’s absolutely ridiculous to read these kinds of stuff, that comes out there. I have been to public events where we have been praised and here we are feeding off lies, overlooking facts, turning a blind eye to all good things that happened and creating fantasies and scenarios in our head. We want to accept that this is the truth,”

The rumors of a rift between two pillars of Indian cricket have been doing rounds in the last few months. It all started when Rohit Sharma unfollowed Virat Kohli on Instagram and the controversy was completely blown out of proportion when Rohit also unfollowed Anushka Sharma on the social media application.
