Speaking on the Club Prairie Fire podcast, Rohit refuted all the claims and termed them 'fake'. He cautioned fans against believing anything that is not coming directly from him, Agarkar, Dravid or the BCCI.

“I haven't met anyone. Ajit Agarkar is playing golf somewhere in Dubai and Rahul Dravid is actually in Bengaluru watching his kids play. He [Dravid] Was in Mumbai but got it [the son] To play on red clay wickets in CCI. That's about it,” Rohit revealed.

“To be honest, we have not met. I think in today's time, unless you hear it from myself or Rahul himself or Ajit himself or someone from BCCI coming in front of the camera and talking to him, everything is fake ” He added.

Coming back to Hardik's situation, the all-rounder was named the captain of Mumbai Indians for IPL 2024, replacing Rohit. However, his form this season has been a matter of concern as the former Gujarat Titans has not bowled regularly.

He is scoring more than 12 runs per over and has only three wickets to his name.

Meanwhile, Kohli has been firing on all cylinders with the bat in IPL 2024 as he leads the run-scoring charts so far.
