India head coach Ravi Shastri has finally spilt the beans about the alleged rift between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.

Shastri said that in a squad of 15 players, there were bound to be differences in opinions. However, he has rubbished all the rumours regarding a rift going on between both the players.

 

“Listen, I have been around the dressing room for the last five years. I have seen how the boys have played and how they have complemented the team and know their work ethics. I feel it is absolute nonsense. I have been there with them and I know the way they play."

"If that was the case why would Rohit get five hundreds in the World Cup? Why would Virat do what he is doing? How would they have partnerships together,” Shastri told Gulf News.

Shastri also said that the atmosphere in the dressing room allows players to pitch their ideas for the improvement of the team.

“In a side when you have 15 players there will always be times when there will be opinions that will be different. That is what is needed. I don’t want everyone toeing the same line."

"You have got to have discussions and someone might then think of a fresh strategy which has to be encouraged. So you have to give the guys the opportunity to express themselves and then decide what is best,” added Shastri.
