Quarantine isolation and Ravi Shastri’s guidance helped Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Weeks of staying indoors in the bio bubble during the epidemic were not easy for the Indian cricket team. However, if anything good can come out of the strict rules of segregation it is the building of a ‘renewed relationship’ between the two alphamales in the dressing room of Team India – Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.
TOI understands that Kohli and Sharma, two senior members of Team India – assisted by team managers and coach Ravi Shastri – have found the time and space needed to sit at the table and “talk” during the series against England. The two strikers, who a few years ago, reportedly disagreed, decided to start on a new note.
A source also said that apart from winning two major series, that has been a huge advantage within Team India’s dressing room. Great harmony has taken place in recent weeks and they are more in agreement now than ever with their cricket, team, responsibilities and future challenges. They understand now, more than ever, that the team It will only benefit if it finds itself on a single page. This has been a huge draw for the past four months.
From opening the beating to being loyal to each other on the field to bringing it closer, Kohli and Sharma ticked off all the appropriate boxes to better understand each other’s point of view. Staying inside the bio-bubble for weeks meant a lot more time and that helped.
The sources said that every conversation that came from the outside was a source of great frustration and all the noise made things worse. It was a matter of Indian cricket for a very long time – of interests given over and over again using rivalries between players. It also said that they never thought of sitting down and talking about it in the most obvious way now.
That follow-up development shows how these two top cricketers have made it a point to cleverly inform those outside Team India camp that “gossip ideas must end”.
The sources said that they had spent a lot of time talking to each other in public, such as during the post-T20 game show. They’ve been appearing in pictures together more than ever. they decided to make it more visible to outsiders knowing that all this discussion now needs to stop.
Those with an ear for cricketers emphasize that this is not a matter of engaging in social relationships that they indulge in to show everyone whether things are right or wrong.
They said that neither of them has the patience for such an exercise. Both of them realize that neither of these two are of much importance to the team and if a disagreement is to be resolved, it is better to resolve it between them than to let outsiders speak for them.
