Coach Ravi Shastri who has been given a 45-day extension until the Caribbean tour also rubbished the fact of both India’s premier batsmen having any rifts between them.
Kohli had said in the press conference before leaving for the United States ” In my opinion, its baffling. Its absolutely ridiculous to read such kinds of stuff. Here I go to some functions and they appreciate us and here we are feeding on lives,overlooking facts and creating fantasies, we need to accept the truth.”
India’s ouster in the Semi-finals of the recently concluded Cricket World Cup led to the rise of such facts of rift between Kohli and Virat.
