Virat Kohli: O Captain! My Captain!

Kolkata: The Indian cricket team reportedly isn’t an epitome of camaraderie anymore. Skipper Virat Kohli looks to have ruffled too many feathers urging a legend like Sunil Gavaskar to ask for his immediate removal from the top job in white-ball cricket. Anyway, Kohli would be part of history as a T20I skipper after the October World Cup. Here are four of his teammates who allegedly, no longer get along well with Kohli.

Rohit Sharma: Don’t blame him if he harbours leadership ambitions. In all probabilities, the Mumbai Indians skipper will take over from Kohli as the captain in T20Is. Their ‘rift’ has always kept the grapevine abuzz and with reports of Kohli asking the BCCI to strip Sharma of vice captaincy responsibilities in the truncated versions of the game, the chasm must have only widened.

Ajinkya Rahane: Believe it or not, Kohli and his second in command in Test matches are not on the same boat any longer. With stories of an insulted Rahane lodging a complaint with the BCCI against Kohli following the latter’s verbal assaults on him after the loss to New Zealand in the final of the maiden World Test Championship final, Board officials have a lot to ponder over.

Cheteshwar Pujara: And Rahane was joined by a reticent Pujara, who too was at the receiving end of Kohli’s ire after the defeat to New Zealand in the final of the inaugural ICC World Test Championship. Pujara who himself had been struggling with form before he gained back his touch in the Test series against England, reportedly felt humiliated by Kohli and confided his dismay in the BCCI.

Ravichandran Ashwin: Even a novice would know that the Tamil Nadu all-rounder is miffed with his skipper. And according to stories doing the rounds, an upset Ashwin, left out of the playing XI against England, found it too bitter a pill to swallow and shared his resentment with the Board.
