The famous celebrity couple Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma has time and again requested everyone especially the media houses not to publish and circulate the photos of their daughter Vamika but in the ODI match played yesterday, people got ample chance to see their daughter and soon afterwards her photos got circulated on the social media networks.
In the third and the final ODI of the 3-match ODI series played against South Africa, the broadcasters revealed Vamika’s face during the live telecast of the match which was played at Newlands Cricket Ground, Cape Town. Anushka was seen holding Vamika in her hands and cheering for Virat Kohli who scored a brilliant half-century. However despite that, India lost the match and South Africa made a clean sweep in the series by winning it by 3-0.
Soon Anushka Sharma took to her Instagram story and made a post in which she stated that she was caught off-guard but their (Virushka’s) previous request of not publishing their daughter’s photo remains the same.
“Hey guys! We realise that our daughter’s images were captured at the stadium yesterday and widely shared thereafter. We want to inform everyone that we were caught off guard and didn’t know that the camera was on us. Our stance and request on the matter stays the same. We would really appreciate if Vamika’s images are not clicked/ published for reasons we have explained earlier. Thank you!”
The same text was posted by Virat Kohli as well on his Instagram story. Virat celebrated his fifty in a special style and dedicated it to his daughter.
As far as the match is concerned, the toss was won by the visitors and they chose to bowl first. The hosts put up a good show as South Africa managed to put up a total of 287 runs with one ball remaining in their innings with the help of the century scored by opener Quinton de Kock (124 runs, 130 balls, 12 fours & 2 sixes) and Rassie van der Dussen (52runs, 59 balls, 4 fours & 1 six) plus David Miller (39 runs, 38 balls, 3 fours & 1 six) also played pretty useful knocks.
In response, the Indian side had a bad start as they lost their skipper KL Rahul early on the personal score of 9 but Shikhar Dhawan (61 runs, 73 balls, 5 fours, 1 six) and Virat Kohli (65 runs, 84 balls, 5 fours) stabilized the innings. Nevertheless, team India struggled after these two got out as Rishabh Pant fell for a duck and Shreyas Iyer also got out early at the score of 26. Though Suryakumar Yadav (39 runs, 32 balls, 4 fours & 1 six) and Deepak Chahar (54 runs, 34 balls, 5 fours & 2 sixes) tried their best to make their team win the match, the Indian squad got all out for 283 runs in 49.2 overs.
The South African tour was pretty disappointing for the Indian cricket team as first it lost the 3-match test series by 2-1 and now it has lost the 3-match ODI series by 3-0.
