Mumbai: Team India captain Virat Kohli and Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma are all set to tie the knot in December this year. While many reports have already used words such as "it is confirmed", neither Virat nor Anushka has commented on the news.
A praise from Tendulkar is always something cricketers cherish upon and as Kohli marches on in his race to chase down Tendulkar's record tally, it is surely a good time to be an Indian cricket fan.
Legendary Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar heaped praise on Indian skipper Virat Kohli hailing the 28-year-old's aggressiveness and attitude towards the game. Hence it came as no surprise when Twitter went berserk after the latest Anushka-Virat ad aired on national television.
The rumours are basing it all on the fact that Kohli has communicated his unavailability for selection for a Test match and the limited-overs series against Sri Lanka in December citing "personal reasons". But, chief selector MSK Prasad has said that Kohli will play in all three Test matches against the islanders.
If they do not get married in December, they might have to wait for some time as India will travel to South Africa, and there is no way that the BCCI will allow him time to miss such a prestigious series. Kohli has been quite open about his relationship, and also at times, posts photos alongside Anuskha on social media.
The couple recently grabbed headlines after appearing together in an advertisement of an ethnic apparel company. However, an official announcement is awaited.
