The Indian cricket dressing room is like a conclave setting. Not much come out through the walls until you are a fan of various talk shows that feature cricketers sharing moments from on and off the field.
However, when celebrities prefer not to say much, their social media handles speak for them.
Something alike has been happening between Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli who, reportedly, have been locked in a tussle for a while now. Reportedly, after unfollowing skipper Kohli on Instagram last year, Rohit Sharma on Thursday unfollowed the skipper’s wife, actress Anushka Sharma on Instagram.
What Brewing In The Dressing Room?
The development comes post World Cup speculations that indicate an ongoing tiff between Indian Captain and Vice-Captain. As per the reports, it all started a few years ago when the latter left the management company with which the skipper was associated with.
Later, Rohit’s colleague Shikhar Dhawan also exited which, since then, has left the team in a split.This split, spooked due to disagreements between the players and management, initiated a divide in the team with one side supporting Virat and the other supporting Rohit.
Moreover, the disagreements continued throughout the World Cup campaign, and as Sharma kept scoring centuries after centuries, his supporters and their views became stronger.
Indian Bowling Coach’s Opinion
Speaking on these rumors, India’s bowling coach Bharat Arun said disagreements in the team are natural. “Everyone voices his opinion. But at the end of the day, the other person’s view is respected and a collective decision is taken,” Arun said in an interview.
Notably, several players in the team are mulling about Rohit leading the 50 over side while Kohli continues to lead the Test and T20 side. Clearly, the team management is having a tough time keeping the build-up under wraps.
Anushka Shares A Cryptic Story
After Rohit Sharma unfollows Anushka on Instagram, the Highway actress took on Instagram to share a cryptic story that has left netizens guessing. The Story read “A wise man once said nothing. Only truth can shake hands with silence in a mess of false appearances…”. Those are some strong words.
Taking a guess, the story indicates Anushka supporting Virat views on something we have no idea about.
Virushka Still Follows Rohit
While it seems like Rohit wants to cut ties, Virushka’s actions state otherwise. Interestingly, Virat and Anushka haven’t unfollowed Rohit on Instagram. That spare some hopes among fans for a possible patch up in the future.
Until then, we can only pray that whatever is brewing between the two world-class players doesn’t affect the team and its performance in the future.
