‘Everything is fake’: Rohit Sharma denies meeting with chief selector Ajit Agarkar and coach Rahul Dravid 

Written by Vishwas Gupta

India captain Rohit Sharma has denied attending any meeting with BCCI chairman of selectors, Ajit Agarkar and head coach Rahul Dravid to decide the roadmap for T20 World Cup. A couple of days ago, a leading Indian news daily reported that Rohit, Dravid and Agarkar caught up in Mumbai for a two-hour-long meeting, where two primary topics were discussed – Hardik Pandya needs to bowl more regularly in order to guarantee a place in India’s T20 World Cup team and whether Virat Kohli needs to open with captain Rohit in the Playing XI.

Rohit, however, dismissed these reports as ‘fake’ news, revealing that he hasn’t met anyone and cautioned the public against believing anything that is not coming directly from him, Agarkar, Dravid or the BCCI.

“I haven’t met anyone. Ajit Agarkar is somewhere in Dubai playing golf and Rahul Dravid is actually watching his kids play in Bengaluru,” Rohit told Michael Vaughan and Adam Gilchrist on the Club Prairie Fire podcast.

“He [Dravid] was in Mumbai but he got him [the son] to play on a red-soil wicket at CCI. That’s about it. We haven’t met, to be honest. I think in today’s day and age, unless you hear it from either myself or Rahul himself or Ajit himself or someone from BCCI coming and talking in front of the camera, everything is fake.”
