Former Mumbai Indians captain and star Indian player Rohit Sharma has accused Star Sports of breaching his privacy. In a hard hitting message, Rohit slammed the leading sports broadcaster saying that his requests to the Star Sports not to share audio and footage of his personal chats with teammates and colleagues were never paid heed.

Taking to social media platform X, Rohit slammed Star Sports, saying, “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 focused only on views and engagement will one day break the trust between the fans, cricketers and cricket. Let better sense prevail,” Rohit posted on X (formerly Twitter).”

Indian captain Rohit Sharma expressed strong disapproval regarding the “breach of privacy” following the viral spread of a video clip where he could be seen telling Star Sports not to air his chat. Rohit, in the video, could be heard saying that his earlier conversation – with former Mumbai batter and current KKR coach Abhishek Nayar – had caused controversy and that he didn’t want to go through the same ordeal again.

The video of his chat with Nayar, which included the original audio, appeared to show Rohit voicing his frustration about the situation within the Mumbai Indians camp, igniting considerable controversy on social media.
