Social media has influenced cricket in a big way in the last few years. Be it cricketers, cricket boards or cricket experts everybody is very active. In fact, cricketers themselves are pretty active and a few of them love interacting on social media as well.

However, there have been multiple social media wars as well. In fact, cricketing relations between cricketers have been affected by arguments on social media. In fact, such keyboard wars and arguments have led to cricketers blocking their other fellow cricketers as well.

Hence, here are five instances when cricketers blocked or unfollowed their fellow cricketers. Most of these five instances have been in the recent past.

For the last few years, while Virat Kohli has been one of the best batsmen across formats, Rohit Sharma has been fabulous in white-ball cricket. The two of them are pillars of the Indian team and have dominated batting charts. They piled up runs and centuries consistently.

Rohit was in fine form during the World Cup earlier this year where he scored five hundreds and eventually ended up as the highest run-getter. Kohli had a rather underwhelming tournament, according to the standards he’s set. India lost in the semi-final of the World Cup and a rift between the captain and vice-captain duo went around.

In fact, this intensified when Rohit unfollowed Kohli on Twitter. While the Indian skipper has brushed aside the rumours of a rift, Rohit’s activity on social media only increased speculation.
