Virat Kohli says he’s available for ODI selection, denies split with Rohit Sharma

India test captain Virat Kohli categorically denied a rift between him and the new white ball captain Rohit Sharma during the virtual pre-start press conference ahead of the three-test series against South Africa from December 26.

With Rohit Sharma missing the three-Test series in South Africa with a hamstring injury and Virat Kohli ‘planning’ to skip the three One Day Internationals for personal reasons, it had given rise to speculation. that all was not well in the team.

In fact, former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin had fueled speculation of a rift in the leadership group by tweeting yesterday, “Virat Kohli has informed that he is not available for the ODI series & Rohit Sharma is unavailable for the upcoming test. It’s okay to take a break, but the timing has to be better. This only justifies the drift speculation. Neither will give up another form of cricket.”

However, Kohli said on Wednesday afternoon that he “never wanted to rest and was available for ODI selection”, quashing rumors that he did not want to play under Rohit Sharma in all three ODIs in South Africa.

On her relationship with Rohit, Kohli said, “I have no problem with Rohit. I have clarified this over the past two years. bring down the team. I am attached to Indian cricket.”
