India’s exit from the World Cup after the shock defeat to New Zealand in the semi-final led to many speculating of a rift between skipper Virat Kohli and vice-captain Rohit Sharma.
Rumors circulated in the media claiming the two individuals were leading different camps during the mega-tournament in England and Wales.
However, Kohli has come out aggressively and denied all such stories of tensions between the two-star batsmen. He has dismissed all talk of hostility with Rohit and said they were on good terms and working towards the betterment of the team. He said he was hurt by the lies spread by certain sections of the media.
“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. 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 declared in the press conference.
