Virat Kohli posted a photograph of himself with India teammates after a training session on Friday ahead of the 1st T20I vs West Indies in Florida. The India captain captioned it “SQUAD” while he was seen posing with Ravindra Jadeja, Navdeep Saini, Khaleel Ahmed, Shreyas Iyer, Krunal Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and KL Rahul. Fans on social media were quick to point out the absence of Rohit Sharma from the image.
Some of them questioned why was Rohit Sharma, the Vice Captain of the Indian Team,was missing from that photo. Earlier, there has been huge rumors of a rift between Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli.
Kohli earlier in the pre- departure press conference in Mumbai brushed off all the rumors of a possible rift between him and Rohit.
“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 (you guys played so well)’,” Virat Kohli said at India’s pre-departure press conference on Monday.
“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 creating fantasies and scenarios in our head and want to accept that this is the truth,” Kohli said.
Team India had their first training session in Florida after their World Cup exit against West Indies. Virat Kohli’s men will be playing 2 T20Is in Florida as part of the full tour to the West Indies. India will also play 3 ODIs and 2 Tests after the final T20I in the West Indies.
Kohli interacted with fans during India’s training session at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground in Lauderhill. The India captain was also seen spending quality time with wife and Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma earlier this week in Miami.
Meanwhile, Shreyas Iyer took to Instagram to share of photograph of himself with the likes of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan among others. The India stars were seen wearing casual clothes and enjoying their time out in Miami.
India will play the 1st T20I against West Indies in Florida on Saturday and the 2nd T20I on Sunday before heading to Guyana for the final T20I.
