Indian cricketer Virat Kohli is enjoying his vacation in Paris along with his wife Anushka Sharma and their daughter Vamika. He has been rested for the upcoming tour of the West Indies and is expected to make a comeback to the team in August. Kohli has had a horrid run for the Indian team on the recently concluded tour of England. However, he seems to be in a good mood and has not let his poor form affect him.
Talking about his Paris trip, Virat Kohli hasn’t any photographs from his vacation. However, Anushka shared a series of Instagram stories giving a sneak peek to the fans. Virat Kohli was also spotted by a fan in Paris, who got an opportunity to get a picture with the former Indian skipper. The picture was shared on social media and has gone viral.

I will be fearing playing an Indian team that has Virat Kohli in it: Ricky Ponting
Amid all the criticism regarding Virat Kohli’s form, former Australian skipper Ricky Ponting has rallied behind the Indian cricketer. Kohli’s form in the last couple of years has been concerning and has drawn a lot of criticism from experts and fans.
Speaking to Sanjana Ganesan for ICC Review, Ricky Ponting expressed that he would fear playing against an Indian team featuring Virat Kohli more, than a team that doesn’t have him. He also stated that every great player eventually finds their way back to form, after going through a rough patch.
“I think if I was an opposition captain or an opposition player, I will be fearing playing an Indian team that has Virat Kohli in it more than I would be one that doesn’t have him in it. I know there have been some challenges for him, it’s been a difficult time. But every great player that I have seen in this game has been through it at some stage. Whether that’s a batsman or a bowler, they have all been through it.”
“And somehow, the best (players) find a way to rebound and respond. It’s only a matter of time before Virat does that,” added Ricky Ponting.
