India limited-overs captain Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma have never shared openly about their relationship to media. But, according to the media speculation, Kohli often shares a photo of Anushka social media but does not amuse any questions about his equation with Anushka.
But Kohli recently said how he was in tears after sharing the news of getting appointed as the captain after step down of MS Dhoni. In an interview, Kohli shared about the incident to the Star Sports that “I was in Mohali and there was a test series going on. I was with Anushka then, she had come to visit me.”
“Surprisingly, when I was made Test Captain, then also she was in Melbourne with me. That was a very special moment we shared together.”
The 28-year-old India’s captain Kohli added, “During the Mohali incident, they had spoken to me already. When I hung up the phone and told her, for me it was like a flashback. From the moment I started playing in my academy till the Mohali game.”
“I was emotional, I was in tears because I had never thought that I will see this day. What was more beautiful was that I was able to share it with Anushka. It was something that I will always remember.”
Both pairs Virat and Anushka have attended the special screening of Sachin Tendulkar biopic of “Sachin: A Billion Dreams” together.
After Dhoni’s retired from the format during India’s tour to Australia, Kohli was given the captaincy of the Indian cricket team in 2015. He was handed over in January just before the series against England.
Virat and Anushka have never shared about their relationship publicly even if they shared their photographs on the social media. But, surprisingly this the first time Kohli shares openly to the public about their relationship.
