It has been reported for quite a while that all is not well between Team India’s captain Virat Kohli and his deputy in limited overs, Rohit Sharma. The latter recently added fuel to fire by unfollowing his captain and his wife Anushka Sharma on Instagram. The topic, since then, has taken a whole new turn with Anushka posting a thought-provoking message on her Instagram account to leave fans pondering. Meanwhile, Virat continues to follows Rohit on Instagram.
The rift rumours continue to grow even stronger as KL Rahul and Yuzvendra Chahal started following Anushka after Rohit allegedly unfollowed her on Instagram soon after Rohit unfollowed her. It is not a hidden fact that both KL Rahul and Yuzvendra Chahal share a great rapport with the Indian captain and his wife Anushka whom they have been seen addressing as ‘Bhabi’ a number of times. It is a surprising fact that neither of them had followed Anushka Sharma on Twitter earlier.
Kl Rahul, who features is all three formats for Team India hasn’t had the bests of the form in the longest format of the game. It is however with Kohli’s backing that he continues to remain the first choice opener even after horrible returns in the last few tournaments. Yuzvendra Chahal, on the other hand, has the RCB connection with the captain. He is one of India’s frontline spinners at the moment but has had the captain’s backing ever since he started playing for RCB.
Here is a screenshot of the KL Rahul and Yuzvendra Chahal after they followed Anushka on Twitter:
The duo immediately following Anushka Sharma amidst the Rohit Sharma row does raise few questions on whether the Bollywood Actress is playing any role in creating a rift in the team. While KL Rahul and Yuzvendra Chahal not following Anushka Sharma earlier was fine, the duo immediately following the actress after Rohit unfollowed her has definitely stirred controversy. Whatever be the situation, we hope that these are just rumors and there isn’t any seriousness attached to it.
