Rohit slammed the broadcastersfor failing to respect his privacy. As per the star batter, airing private conversations could break the trust among the various stakeholders.

"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," wrote Rohit on his social media account X (earlier known as Twitter.

"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," the veteran batter further added.
