Indian Test cricket captain Virat Kohli, on Wednesday, clarified that there is no rift between him and India’s newly appointed ODI and T20 captain Rohit Sharma. 

“There is no problem between me and Rohit Sharma. I have been clarifying for the past two years and I am tired now,” Virat Kohli said. 

Kohli was briefing the media before the Indian team’s departure to South Africa for three-match test series. 

He added: “Rohit is a very able captain. There is also Rahul bhai (Coach Rahul Dravid), who is a great man manager. They will get my 100 percent support in ODIs and T20Is.”
