Virat Kohli dismisses rift with Rohit Sharma rumors
New Delhi : Indian skipper Virat Kohli on Monday dismissed all media reports which have been claiming that he is having a rift with Indian opener Rohit Sharma post World Cup 2019.
"In my opinion it's baffling to be honest. It's absolutely ridiculous to read such stuff that comes out. I have been to a few public events and the sentiment is 'aap log kya khele (you guys played so well)'," Kohli said, reacting to the rift rumours.
"We are feeding off lies. We are overlooking facts. We are turning a blind eye to all the good things that has happened. We are creating fantasies and scenarios in our head and want to accept that this is the truth," he added.
"I have seen this for too long now. Bringing personal lives into the picture. It's disrespectful after a moment. There is nothing between me and Rohit," Kohli said.
"Come and see how we talk to Kuldeep Yadav, how we respect our seniors like MS Dhoni," Kohli said, explaining the lively environment in the team.
"If the team atmosphere wouldn't have been good then we wouldn't have succeeded," Kohli further said.
Indian head coach Ravi Shastri also intervened in the matter and said that 'no player is greater than the team and there is no nonsense in the team.
