Committee of Administrators (CoA) chief Vinod Rai has rejected speculation that there may be a rift between India captain Virat Kohli and his deputy Rohit Sharma. 

There were reports that the Board was contemplating split captaincy — Sharma for limited-overs and Kohli for Tests. But that possibility has already been ruled out by the BCCI officials.

“These are all stories created by you guys,” Rai said in response to queries on whether India’s two top batsmen are at loggerheads.
