Team India skipper Rohit Sharma has denied having a meeting with the think tank regarding the selection decisions ahead of the T20 World Cup 2024. The right-handed batter revealed that both Ajit Agarkar and Rahul Dravid are currently busy in their personal lives and that such reports are fake.

The last 24 hours have seen reports circulate around BCCI zeroing in on Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli as the openers for the showpiece event. There were reportedly also discussions around Hardik Pandya, with the all-rounder needing to bowl regularly to have his place fixed in the squad.

Speaking on the Club Prairie Fire podcast, the veteran opener claimed that unless there are official statements from the BCCI or any other Indian team member, everything is fake.

"I haven't met anyone. Ajit Agarkar is somewhere in Mumbai playing golf, and Rahul bhai is watching his kid play in Bengaluru. He was in Mumbai for a while and we got him to play on a red-soil wicket in CCI. That's about it. We haven't met to be honest. In today's age, unless you hear from me, Agarkar himself, Rahul himself, or any BCCI official talking in front of the camera, everything is fake."

Rohit Sharma in decent form in IPL 2024:

Rohit Sharma, who is currently part of the Mumbai Indians, has been in decent form in the ongoing edition of IPL. The Nagpur-born cricketer has mustered 261 runs in 6 matches, with the best of 105* coming against the Chennai Super Kings at the Wankhede Stadium.

Despite the unbeaten 105, Mumbai lost to Chennai, making it their 4th defeat of the season. The five-time champions will face the Punjab Kings on Thursday in Mullanpur.
