Rohit Sharma“SHAME ON STAR SPORTS” : In a dramatic turn of events, “SHAME ON STAR SPORTS” has taken social media by storm, trending across platforms, especially on X (formerly Twitter).

The Incident: A Breach of Trust

Rohit Sharma, the former captain of the Mumbai Indians (MI), found himself in an uncomfortable spotlight after a private conversation was recorded and aired without his consent. The cricketer was engaged in a casual chat with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) assistant coach Abhishek Nayar and former MI pacer Dhaval Kulkarni. During this conversation, Rohit was overheard making personal remarks about changes in the Mumbai Indians team and hinting at his potential departure from the franchise.

One of the notable lines from the conversation was: “Ek ek cheez change ho raha hai… Woh unke upar hai… Jo bhi hai woh mera ghar hai bhai, woh temple jo hai na maine banwaya hai.” This translates to “Everything is changing… It’s up to them… Whatever it is, it’s my home, brother, that temple is something I built.” The final, and most telling line, was “Bhai mera kya mera to ye last hai,” implying that this might be his last season with the team.

Rohit Sharma’s Reaction

Upon realizing that his conversation was being recorded, Rohit Sharma was seen folding his hands and asking the cameraman to stop recording. Despite his request, the video was broadcast, sparking outrage among fans and fellow cricketers.

On May 19, Rohit took to X to voice his frustration. He wrote, “The lives of cricketers have become so intrusive that cameras are now recording every step and conversation we are having in privacy with our friends and colleagues, at training or on match days. Despite asking Star Sports to not record my conversation, it was and was also then played on air, which is a breach of privacy. The need to get exclusive content and focus only on views and engagement will one day break the trust between the fans, cricketers, and cricket.”
