Life sometimes takes interesting turns. Just a few years ago, Rohit Sharma was thought not to enjoy a big equation with Virat Kohli, India’s then undisputed leader in all game formats.

Once rated as the best hitter in the world, Kohli was targeted after his failures in the fifth test (11 and 20) and T20I series (1 and 11) in England where his extended lean patch continued.
After India’s 17-run defeat in the third T20I, however, Rohit he ruled out the idea of ​​dropping someone of Kohli’s stature from the Indian team, referring to his team’s favorite phrase in modern times: “outside noise.” Oddly enough, he alluded to the fact that “experts” like Kapil Dev didn’t know what was going on inside the team.
“It’s not at all difficult for us because we don’t listen to outside noises. Also, I don’t know who these experts are and why they are called experts. I don’t understand. They are seeing from the outside, they don’t know what’s going on inside the team. We have a we think process, we build the team, we argue and we discuss it and we think about it a lot, ”said Rohit.

It didn’t help Kohli’s case that an in-form Deepak Hooda he had to stay out to make room for him in the 11th. “India has so many hitters that they can go on from the start, some of them sadly stayed out. You need to find a way to play with the best players available in current form in T20 cricket,” tweeted the great Virender. India opening sehwag.

Former Indian pacer Venkatesh Prasad also questioned the long rope delivered to Kohli on Monday and said other stars have not received similar support.
