Earlier before the departure for the West Indies tour, Rohit Sharma had also posted a photo on Instagram which said: "I don't just walk out for my Team. I walk out for my country."

Ever since India's exit from the World Cup in the semifinals, there have been rumours about a rift between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. However, both Virat Kohli and head coach Ravi Shastri have denied the reports with the India captain terming the rumours "baffling".

Rohit Sharma doesn't follow Virat Kohli on Instagram and recently he unfollowed Anushka Sharma -- wife of India skipper too, which added fuel to the rift rumours. 

However, Virat Kohli still follows Rohit Sharma on Instagram, but not his wife Ritika Sajdeh. 

Anushka Sharma also doesn't follow Ritika Sajdeh and Rohit Sharma on Instagram and same is the case with Ritika Sajdeh who doesn't follow the Indian skipper and his wife.
