The way things unfolded in the last few weeks, there were speculations that not all is well between Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav. It all started with the famous ‘staring contest’ between the two when Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians locked horns in the just-concluded IPL 2020.
The incident had taken just a couple of days after the selectors ignored Suryakumar Yadav for the upcoming series against Australia. The incident made many say that the right-handed batsman was miffed at Kohli for his non-selection and thus got indulged in the staring contest.
And all hell broke lose on Monday (November 16) when the Mumbai batsman liked a controversial tweet, calling Kohli a paper captain and taking a dig at him as well as the selectors for the way Rohit Sharma’s selection matter panned out. The 30-year old also faced the flak on social media for liking the tweet.
