Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have been India's top performers over the years across formats. While Rohit Sharma has not enjoyed tremendous success in the longest format of the game but he is still a force to reckon with in the shorter formats. Recently, Rohit smashed five centuries in India's World Cup 2019 campaign. On the other hand, Virat Kohli became India's most successful captain in Test cricket with 28 wins. However, head coach Ravi Shastri has denied rumors of rift in the dressing room between India's two gifted cricketers.

In a recent interview, Ravi Shastri said, "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?

Ahead of the departure to the West Indies, skipper Virat Kohli rubbished such claims and termed it as baffling.

"In my opinion it’s baffling to be honest. It's absolutely ridiculous to read such stuff that comes out. I have been to a few public events and the sentiment is 'aap log kya khele'."

"We are feeding off lies. We are overlooking facts. We are turning a blind eye to all the good things that has happened. We are creatinf fantasies and scenarios in our head and want to accept that this is the truth."

After a memorable West Indies tour, Team India will take on a depleted South Africa side at home from 15th September.
