IPL 2024: Rohit Sharma lashes out at Star Sports for recording ‘private’ conversations

CricketIPL 2024: Rohit Sharma lashes out at Star Sports for recording 'private' conversations

Srinagar: Team India skipper and Mumbai Indians opener Rohit Sharma has hot out at broadcaster Star Sports for recording his private conversation during IPL 2024, calling it a breach of privacy.

Rohit Sharma posted on his X account where he raised the issue, saying that the lives of cricketers were surrounded by cameras at every step.

“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,” Sharma posted on X.

“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.”

Sharma’s post came days after his private conversations with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) assistant coach Abhishek Nayar went viral on social media.

Rohit had also requested Star Sports to disable the audio while having cameras towards him as he was chatting with his teammate.

“Brother, please close the audio, one audio has already made things difficult for me,” said Rohit in the clip recorded by Star Sports.
