War between Cricketers on Twitter seem to be common these days, However there are some instances which led to Unfollow or Block other Cricketers here is the list of such Incidents:
Rohit Sharma unfollows skipper Virat Kohli
Rohit was in fine form during the World Cup earlier this year where he scored five hundreds and eventually ended up as the highest run-getter. Kohli had a rather underwhelming tournament, according to the standards he’s set. India lost in the semi-final of the World Cup and a rift between the captain and vice-captain duo went around.
In fact, this intensified when Rohit unfollowed Kohli on Twitter. While the Indian skipper has brushed aside the rumours of a rift, Rohit’s activity on social media only increased speculation.
Kevin Pietersen Blocked Mitchell Johnson
During the first Test, Pietersen and Michael Vaughan were talking about England pacers bowling at 140 kmph. However, it irked Mitchell Johnson who took to Twitter to share his mind with the two former England cricketers. The former Aussie fast bowler criticized the England bowlers for not bending their backs and getting the most of the surface.
Pietersen didn’t take this tweet lightly as he questioned Johnson’s comments. The former Aussie left-armer then mocked Pietersen in his tweet before he was blocked. Hence, this Twitter war scaled up pretty quickly which led to the blocking of Johnson.
3. Sanjay Manjrekar Blocked Michael Vaughan
While predicting India’s XI for the semi-final, Manjrekar picked Jadeja in his XI which surprised Michael Vaughan. The former England skipper retweeted and said, “I see you have picked that bits and pieces cricketer.” The Indian cricketer-turned-commentator replied and said, it’s not his XI but predicted.
‘Predicted’ my dear Vaughan…not ‘my’ team. 🙄 https://t.co/vKisWU0vyK

5. Sreesanth’s Teammates Unfollows him after Spot-fixing
