Anushka Shares Heartfelt Post Recalling Virat Kohli’s Journey As He Quits Test Captaincy

Virat Kohli is certainly one of the best cricketers of the world and he is admired by not only Indian cricket fans but also cricket lovers from other countries as well. So it was quite obvious that there was a huge uproar when he resigned from the post of India’s test captain after the Indian squad lost the third and final test match against South Africa and also lost the series by 2-1. Virat Kohli was also slammed by some former cricketers because of his rash behavior which he exhibited after the South African skipper Dean Elgar was given not out post DRS review.

Virat Kohli is undoubtedly the most successful test skipper of India as the Indian team has played 68 test matches under his leadership and has won 40 out of them.

A day after Virat Kohli gave up his captaincy, his wife Anushka Sharma took to Instagram and wrote an emotional post for her husband. She talked about Virat’s journey as a skipper and stated that she is proud of the growth that she has seen in him and also of the achievements that he and his team have made under his leadership. Anushka posted two photos with the post, in the first photo, Virat is seen laughing while in the second one, Anushka is seen kissing Virat on his cheek.

Here is what Anushka Sharma wrote,

“Remember the day in 2014 when you told me that you have been made the captain as MS had decided to retire from test cricket.

I remember MS, you & I having a chat later that day & him joking about how quickly your beard will start turning grey. We all had a good laugh about it. Since that day, I’ve seen more than just your beard turning grey. I’ve seen growth. Immense growth. Around you & within you. And yes, I am very proud of your growth as the captain of the Indian National Cricket team & what achievements the team had under your leadership. But I’m more proud of the growth you achieved within you.

In 2014 we were so young & naive. Thinking that just good intentions, positive drive & motives can take you ahead in life. They definitely do but, not without challenges. A lot of these challenges that you faced were not always on the field. But then, this is life right? It tests you in places where you least expect it to but where you need it the most. And my love, I am so proud of you for not letting anything come in the way of your good intentions. You led by example & gave winning on field every ounce of your energy to the extent that after some losses I’ve sat next to you with tears in your eyes, while you wondered if there’s still something more you could have done. This is who you are & this is what you expected from everyone. You’ve been unconventional & straightforward. Pretence is your foe & this is what makes you great in my eyes & the eyes of your admirers. Because underneath all this were your pure, unadulterated intentions always. And not everyone will be able to truly understand that. Like I’ve said, truly blessed are those who tried to get to know you beneath what meets the eye. You are not perfect & have your flaws but then again when did you ever try to conceal that? What you did was to always stand up for doing the right thing, the harder thing, always! You held on to nothing with greed, not even this position & I know that. Because when one holds on to something so tightly they limit themselves & you, my love, are limitless. Our daughter will see the learning of these 7 years in the father that you are to her. You did good.”

The post has received more than 23,90,000 likes till now and fans are loving the gesture of Anushka Sharma for her husband.
