We can't say that the comparisons between Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have started because they never ceased in the first place.
However, the IPL and Rohit's initial exclusion from the Australia tour did make things worse, as their fans have come out in the open to fight for their favourite.
To the extent that some even suggested that Rohit should be made the captain of India in the T20s, since he has a prolific captaincy record in the IPL.
So when an Australian journalist asked their fans why they 'dislike' the other cricketer, a war started, and here are the results.

Virat Kohli always praise Rohit Sharma performance but Rohit Sharma never praise Virat Kohli performance.
Many videos available on YouTube if you want to see , where Virat praise Rohit Sharma. But no video available where Rohit praise Virat Kohli. https://t.co/VoaWi9pqcE

Meanwhile, some people also pointed out that this is our 'internal matter' and that others shouldn't start these discussions for mileage.
