Mumbai: There seems to be a rift brewing between Team India skipper Virat Kohli and his limited-overs deputy Rohit Sharma if recent activities are anything to go by.
The Mumbai batsman has apparently unfollowed Kohli on social media pages such as Twitter and Instagram, which has caused a huge stir among fans.
Rohit Sharma follows Shardul Thakur, Dhawal Kulkarni etc but don't have enough space to follow the Captain of the national team so unfollowed Virat Kohli.— Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) September 3, 2018

Know the reason? ..why Rohit unfollowed Virat in Instagram ???— Afu. (@Arya_WinFell) September 3, 2018
Dhawal and Shardul are his friends from a very long time. Plus, neither does Virat follow Rohit. But I don't understand, why do social media followings matter so much?— Diya. (@TheCricketGirll) September 3, 2018

The swashbuckling opener had earlier liked a tweet questioning BCCI’s dual standards after Anushka Sharma was spotted with the team when they visited the Indian High Commission in England.
This came after the board proposed a 14-day slot for WAGs, requesting them to keep away for the first three Test matches of the ongoing England series.
Not only that, Rohit even liked a post on Twitter that mentioned he should have been part of the Test squad.
Last week, the BCCI announced that Rohit would lead the Men in Blue for the upcoming Asia Cup 2018 tournament with Kohli being rested.
