Bengaluru — Insisting that all was well in the Indian cricket dressing room, pacer Mohammed Shami on Saturday said reports of rift between Test captain Virat Kohli and ODI skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni are simply wrong.

“That the team is divided and the team is not performing — there is no truth in these things. I have shared the dressing room with all of them including Virat and Mahi Bhai. I never felt anything like that (there is a rift between them). If media is making an issue then it is wrong,” he said. The injured pacer is in the city undergoing fitness training at the National Cricket Academy. Shami has been out of action since the World Cup due to discomforting pain and injury in his left knee. Shami also requested media not to highlight “baseless” stories of disunity and rift. — PTI
