Gavaskar: Virat Kohli needed to be formally re-appointed as captain

Mumbai: The rifts rumours regarding Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are slowly becoming true after Rohit Sharma "unfollowed" Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma on Instagram.

Head coach Ravi Shastri also echoed his voice on the same tone and said the team could not have gained this amount of success in all the three formats if there was a tension going on between two of the senior-most players."You cannot have this consistency across all three formats if these rifts or divisions were true". I mean I've been to a few public events and the public sentiment that I've seen - everyone comes up and says that we played so well, ' said Kohli.


"We are turning a blind eye to all the good things that's happened".

Revealing what it has been like in the last year-and-a-half with the love of her life, Virat Kohli, Anushka Sharma remarked, "I'm married to my best friend. It's freaky how people are creating these things", Kohli said during the press conference which was held at a Mumbai Hotel before Team India's departure to West Indies and United States. I know our dressing room atmosphere and the trust factor.


Certain sections in the BCCI have also been vocal that splitting the captaincy could be a way forward for the Indian team as they now look to plan for the 2023 World Cup.

On the eve of his team's departure for the tour of West Indies, Kohli sought to clear the air. Our journey from No. 7 to 1 [in Tests] and getting this consistency in ODIs and the way we've been strong in T20s as well. We can't show you a video. After the reappointment, he (captain) gets invited to the meeting for his views on the selecting the players for the team.


Sharma - the vice-captain of the one-day and T20 global side - recently unfollowed Kohli and the captain's Bollywood wife Anushka Sharma on Instagram, adding fuel to the suggestions the two senior players were not on good terms. Not me, not him, nobody in the team. 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. The way they play, it is in the interest of the team. But I was feeling too worked up. "We have had no issues", the Indian skipper further added. I know environment is very important.
