Virat Kohli clarifies on rift with Rohit Sharma

Friday, 02 Aug, 2019

"I have heard a lot". I know our dressing room atmosphere and the trust factor. Had that not been there, we would not have been here.

Even a kid would give the answer "Virat Kohli" when he did ask to name the aggressive cricketer in the world cricket.

No denial yet about the rift. "This will be challenging and exciting for the players and they will learn from the experience".

The topic came back again. Is it the wives who are fighting?

Ganguly said there had to be "clear" communications between the selectors, team management and players.

"He's one of the calmest persons I've met".

Kohli was smarter when he took the mike. It's absolutely ridiculous to read these kind of stuff, that comes out there.

"We are feeding off lies. We are creating fantasies and scenarios in our head and want to accept that this is the truth", Kohli said while addressing the pre-tour media conference here ahead of the West Indies tour. Meanwhile, on the work front, Anushka was last seen in Aanand L. Rai's "Zero".

Virat Kohli's appointment as captain ended with the ICC World Cup 2019 and he needed to be formally re-appointed, Sunil Gavaskar, the former India captain, has pointed out.

"We can't shoot a video and show you guys".

"It baffles you as a leader, as a coach, and as a team when lies are being floated around". In an interaction with Filmfare, Anushka rubbished them once again and said that this is because people are constantly trying to make something out of nothing.

She didn't stop there and added that when they are together the world stops, "You talk about being misunderstood in life and then you meet someone, who understands you completely". I always praised Rohit because I genuinely believe he is that good. "We have had no issues", the Indian skipper further added. He's the most shaant person I know. We are living and breathing in getting Team India to the top, and here some people are doing there best to bring us down. "I hope the final would have ended", he said while giving joint winners' trophy to both the teams. "The friendship and camaraderie is there for everyone to see".

Kohli said the team was looking forward to the West Indies series, especially the five-day matches which have been included in the World Test Championship.
