Anushka Sharma penned a heartfelt note after Virat Kohli’s magical 82-run knock helped India edged past arch-rivals Pakistan by four wickets at jam-packed Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Sunday, October 23.
Kohli’s unbeaten knock of 82 runs got etched in the history books as one of the most memorable performances by a batter in the history of T20 cricket. He and Hardik Pandya stitched a 100-run partnership to take the game before the former Indian captain sealed an emphatic victory.
While Indian players and fans took time to digest what Virat Kohli had done on the field, his wife Anushka Sharma took to Instagram to post a beautiful message for the iconic batter.
“You beauty!! You freaking beauty!! You have brought sooooo much joy in peoples lives tonight and that too on the eve of Diwali!” Anushka Sharma wrote on Instagram.
Anushka Sharma added:
“You are a wonderful wonderful man my love. Your grit, determination and belief is mind boggling !! I have just watched the best match of my life I can say and although our daughter is too small to understand why her mother was dancing around and screaming wildly in the room, one day she will understand that her dad played his best innings that night which followed after a phase that was tough on him but he came out of it stronger and wiser than ever before!
“So proud of you !! Your strength is contagious and you my love, are LIMITLESS!! Love you forever and through thick and thin.”
