Since the rumours of the rift between him and Virat Kohli broke out, Rohit Sharma has been a hot topic of discussion on social media. There is a group of people who back him and want him to replace Virat as the Indian captain. On the other hand, there have also been several discussions and debates over his exclusion from the Test team despite him being in terrific form.
While Virat Kohli claims that everything is fine between the two, Rohit Sharma’s actions suggest otherwise. In the last few months, he has created several major controversies on social media through his actions. These moves clearly indicate that he is not on the same page as the skipper and the management.
Here are five instances when Rohit Sharma created controversy on social media:
1. Unfollowing Virat Kohli
It is a delightful scene for the fans when Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli bat together. They are two of the master craftsmen with the bat in modern times. Both of them have established themselves in the Indian set-up and rose up through the ranks.
However, the news about the Indian limited-overs vice-captain unfollowing Virat Kohli on Instagram went viral on social media. Rohit has over 10 million followers on Instagram and he follows about 100 people on the platform. These include the likes of Manish Pandey, Zaheer Khan, Mayank Markande and others.
But Virat Kohli isn’t one amongst them and rumours claim that he has unfollowed the skipper a while ago. On the other hand, the 30-year-old follows Rohit on the same platform. Thus, this has led to a major controversy and a highly debated one.
