Virat & Rohit Controversy:- When the world was pouring a heap of praises on Jasprit Bumrah for taking 3 crucial wickets in the match in the first T20 international against Australia the eagle-eyed camera caught something so-called disrespectful, where Virat Kohli was seen advising Bumrah, while vice-captain Rohit Sharma watches the entire conversation as a mere spectator.
Virat & Rohit Controversy:- Fans were amused seeing how Virat Kohli ignored Rohit Sharma valuable inputs during the match. The match went down the wire and when it mattered the most India choked in the final over and lost the match by 3 wickets.
A few months back news exploded of Rohit Sharma unfollowing Virat Kohli on social media sites like Twitter and Instagram. Although professional camaraderie can be smelled between the two, the swashbuckling southpaw seems to be maintaining social distance from Virat Kohli.
Virat & Rohit Controversy:- The funny element is that Virat Kohli follows Rohit Sharma’s wife Ritika Sajdeh on Twitter and Instagram. Rohit Sharma was seen following cricketers like Praveen Kumar, MS Dhoni, Ajit Agarkar, Sourav Ganguly, Shikhar Dhawan, and Sachin Tendulkar.
Hope both the duo will display better sporting presence next time and give fans something to cheer. India will have to win the next T20 match to level the series. The next T20 match will be played on 27th February 2019 at Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore.
