Mr. Sharma has been seen in the video allegedly revealing his  internal talks with head coach Rahul Dravid and Virat kohli, and also seen making allegation among some more senior players.

Talking about former captain of Indian Team Virat Kohli, he said Kohli had started thinking of himself that he is bigger than the Board and tried to hit back by making allegations that former BCCI president Sourav Ganguly has removed him from ODI captaincy.

BCCI is looking into the matter because national selectors are bound to contracts and are not allowed to speak in media.
