No Birthday Wish From Rohit Sharma For Virat Kohli
Though earlier this year on 30th April, Kohli had wished Rohit on his birthday on Twitter. Late in the day Rohit also retweeted Kohli’s birthday wish and thanked him which delighted every fan of Indian cricket.

It was believed that the captain and vice-captain have had a clash of opinions which led to the Indian team dressing room being divided. Things escalated further when both Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma unfollowed each other on Instagram.
