Virat Kohli, the skipper of team India, is always in news for some or the other reasons. He is undeniably exceptional on the field but his real life is also quite interesting. He tied knot with his ladylove Anushka Sharma after dating for years. In fact, their marriage was also a secret affair and took place in Italy in the presence of family members and close friends only.
It won’t be wrong to say that he’s the style icon for youth and recently he was figured in the list of Forbes highest paid athletes of the world, 2018. Interestingly, he is the only Indian who made it to the list and this is definitely a proud moment for his family and fans.
BCCI annual award function was held on June 12, 2018, and Anushka also attended it with Virat.
It was natural for him to be the center of attraction as he got the Polly Umrigar Award for the best cricketer at the 6th MAK Pataudi Lecture.
2016-17 has been great for Kohli as he scored total 1332 runs in 13 test matches and his average was 74 while in 27 ODIs played during the same period, he scored 1516 runs with an average of 84.22. In 2017-18, Kohli has scored 896 runs in 6 tests with an average of 89.6 while his average in ODIs during the same period is 75.50.
Ravi Shastri, the coach of team India, presented the award to Virat who said wonderful words about his wife after receiving the award.
Here’s what Kohli said,
“My wife is here today so makes it more special. The awards didn’t happen last year but I am glad they didn’t because she is here now.”

Aww that’s so adorable and Anushka must be on cloud nine after hearing these words from her husband.
Virat will not be a part of the historic one-off test against Afghanistan after sustaining neck injury. The injury also ruled him out of county games for Surrey. He is currently undergoing rehabilitation.
We congratulate Virat Kohli for the award & wish him a speedy recovery!
