“SHAME ON STAR SPORTS” as Rohit Sharma slams IPL broadcasters for stunning privacy invasion!

#SHAMEONSTARSPORTS is trending on social media and cricket fanatics are rallying behind Rohit’s explosive revelation. Indian Cricket captain Rohit Sharma wrote a post on ‘X’ (previously Twitter) in which he did not mince his words. “Cricket players’ lives have become so intrusive such that cameras now record every step and talk we make in private together with our friends or colleagues, at training or during match days,” he said. The cricketer’s statement caused ripples across the globe. Star Sports recorded a conversation that was supposed to be private despite explicitly informing them not to do so.

In an incident that has infuriated cricket fans, a video shows Rohit telling a cameraman to stop recording his audio while chatting with Mumbai Ranji Trophy team mate Dhawal Kulkarni. “Bhai audio bandh karo, Kasamse, ek audio ne mera waat laga dia (Bro don’t record the audio. One such audio screwed me),” Rohit was heard saying. But this plea fell on deaf ears and Star Sports aired it out for millions of their viewers.

Rohit has been in a similar situation before. A couple of years ago, he got into a big mess when a social media post was put up by the Kolkata Knight Riders social media team of a private conversation Rohit had with Abhishek Nayar, their assistant coach.

Fans are not happy at all and they have turned to social media to air their anger against Star Sports. Several people have called for more restrictive laws and regulations to prevent athletes from becoming victims of invasive journalism.

The Star Sports crisis is deepening as well, with numerous demands that the broadcaster should apologize and accept responsibility for its actions. In regard to this matter, which continues to unfold like a movie, sports integrity is really hanging on. Will Star Sports respond following such highly despicable betrayal or will fans’ fury keep mounting?
