Speculations are rife over the relation between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Ever since India exited the World Cup at the semifinal stage, rumours of a rift between Kohli and Rohit have surfaced. From talks of issues between the senior players to rumours that some senior members of the team were not happy with one cricketer breaking the ‘family clause’, the World Cup exit has been marred with controversies.
But all the focus was on the rumour surrounding Kohli and Rohit. The rumours suggested that the Indian dressing room has been divided into two halves with one supporting Kohli and the other backing Rohit. And as if all those rumours were not enough, a recent social media activity of Rohit added fuel to the reports.
The India skipper, who has not been following Kohli for quite some time now, apparently “unfollowed” Anushka Sharma on Instagram. What is more surprising is that Kohli still follows Rohit on Instagram but not his wife Ritika Sajdeh. Anushka, on the other hand, does not follow Ritika and Rohit on Instagram and same is the case with Ritika who doesn’t follow the Indian skipper and his wife.
For quite some time now, reports suggest that Rohit and his wife are also not happy with the special treatment meted out to Kohli and Anushka. Last year, Anushka had visited the Indian embassy in London along with the team and had faced the heat. Well, the cold war that is brewing between Kohli and Rohit perhaps has an old connection.
Many might think that the two sides are not on good terms because of recent turn of events but it is not so. Kohli knows Ritika even before Rohit met her. The India skipper, in fact, had first met Ritika even before he started dating Anushka. In 2013, Kohli was spotted chilling out with a mystery girl in Mumbai and the girl was Ritika.
While Kohli had no problem in getting clicked, Ritika had tried to hide her face as soon she saw the paparazzi. The India star had reportedly met Ritika during the Indian Premiere League way back in 2010. Perhaps this is the reason why Kohli does not follow Ritika on social media.
