One of the most talked about incidents from the first Test between India and West Indies in Antigua was that of skipper Virat Kohli reading Steven Sylvester’s book ‘Detox Your Ego’ in the dressing room. While Kohli’s teammates were busy fighting out on the field in the first innings, he was fully focused on the book. The India star, who is known for his bold personality, perhaps wanted to change something with his attitude.
Kohli’s personality has always divided opinions. While many idolize him for his fierce attitude, there are also many who don’t really like his personality. Unsurprisingly, the picture of reading the book attracted a huge reaction on social media. While some fans were amused with Kohli’s choice of the book, some even went on to ask whether the book was gifted to him by Rohit Sharma.
There have been reports of a rift between Kohli and Rohit, since India’s defeat in the Cricket World Cup semifinals. But Kohli has insisted that his relationship with Rohit is fine. The speculations have further escalated when Rohit could not find a spot in India’s playing eleven for the Test despite being in stunning form. But amidst all these, the publishers of the book are making some good fortune.
On Tuesday, the book’s Twitter handle took to the social media platform to reveal that they are sold out in India while the demand in United Kingdom is also high. “It’s the office of DETOX YOUR EGO.

India thrash West Indies
Talking about the match, India proved just too good for the West Indies. After an early collapse on day one, India remained in command throughout. In the second innings, they bowled out the hosts for just 100 to win the game by 318 and register their biggest overseas victory. The second and last Test of the series will start on August 30 in Jamaica.
