Star Sports on Monday denied airing the audio of any personal conversation involving Rohit Sharma after the Indian captain accused the channel of "breaching" his privacy despite his requests to stop the recording.

A video shared by Kolkata Knight Riders, involving Rohit and KKR assistant coach Abhishek Nayar, in which the former was purportedly seen contemplating his future at the Mumbai Indians, had gone viral on May 11. KKR subsequently deleted the video from its social media pages.

The other day on 16th May similar incident happened when Rohit Sharma was seen having a conversation with Dhawan Kulkarni ahead of match against Lucknow Super Giants. The opened then requested the broadcaster to turn off the audio when he noticed the cameras in his direction.

On Sunday, he accused the channel of airing a private conversation but Star denied the charge in a statement. 

The clip, taken during a training session on May 16 at Wankhede stadium, for which Star Sports had authorised access, momentarily showed the senior player in conversation with his friends on the sidelines. No audio from this conversation was either recorded or broadcast. 

"The clip, which only showed the senior player requesting for the audio of his conversation to not be recorded, got featured in Star Sports' live coverage of pre-match preparations and lacked editorial relevance beyond this," the channel stated.
