New Delhi: The news of a rift between Team India captain Virat Kohli and opener Rohit Sharma often makes media headlines, but is there really any rift between these two star players?
Will Rohit be the next captain?
Rohit Sharma is often called the next captain of Team India, because in the IPL, Rohit has made Mumbai Indians champion 5 times under his leadership. In such a situation, he can replace Virat Kohli as the Indian captain. This is the basis due to which the rumours of bitterness get air.
Full stop on rumours!
Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have denied such rumors many times, but even a small incident in the field gives a chance to the trolls. However, some such sight was seen in the Headingley Test, which can put a full stop on these rumours.
Virat-Rohit hit high five
In the third Test between India and England (IND vs ENG), Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma were fielding around each other. When Mohammed Shami took the wicket of Jonny Bairstow in the 108th over, Virat and Rohit celebrated together doing high fives.
Shami gets his second wicket of the day, dismissing Bairstow for 29.
