It is often said the two superpowers cannot coexist, this might be the case in Indian cricket as well. The mystery of the relationship Rohit and Virat share has always created a lot of buzz. While media and fans suggest there is a rift between the two, the players themselves have always denied it. And now, a battle of who follows who has taken over the internet.

In a recent tweet that surfaced all over, a user claimed that Virat Kohli follows Rohit Sharma on Instagram, but the other way is not true. This gave rise to fans digging into this subject even deeper. A battle between the fans of the two players rose at this point.

The tension among the fans has risen further since BCCI handed over the ODI captaincy to Rohit Sharma. At first, Virat stepped down as the Indian T20 captain, Rohit was the obvious choice to take over. Later on, BCCI sacked Virat as the ODI captain and named Rohit as the leader in white-ball games. All this gave rise to many controversies, and Virat eventually stepped down as the Test captain as well. While Rohit leads the white-ball team, Test captaincy is still up for grabs.

The tweet of who follows who made people dig deeper and the Twitterati's found out what actually transpired.
