Over the years, the fan-following has just grown further when it comes to power couple, Virushka. Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are a huge success in their respective fields and make a strong couple, since getting married in late 2017.
Kohli and Anushka are often spotted with each other when the former is busy with national or IPL duties. His wife, and Bollywood actor, Anushka often accompanies him to the cricket field and they have been a huge hit as a pair, setting the bar higher for couples worldwide and giving them major goals from time to time.
Apart from their appearances together, the duo also remains very active on social media platforms and often shares hilarious or adorable posts from their daily life. In a throwback video, Kohli and Anushka were seen asking questions to each other from their respective fields and also related to one another.
Though Kohli got two out of three questions right while answering facts about the Hindi film industry, alias Bollywood, Anushka left her husband stumped and in splits while naming the basic rules of the gentlemen’s game.
“No. 1, don’t get out (leaving both laughing out loud). No. 2, don’t quit the game (To which Kohli said, “that’s not a rule, but is expected).” Here’s the whole video:
Anushka added in the video, “I actually know the rule. In powerplay, only two fielders are allowed outside the circle. Then, you cannot bowl the ball outside of the crease. The third one is, if you hit the ball beyond the boundary and it doesn’t touch the ground, then it is a six. But if it touches the ground, it is a four.”
However, she stumped Kohli when she knew two significant facts regarding the game. Kohli asked, “Which women’s player has the highest ODI wickets”. First, Anushka began by saying “do you think I know this”. While Kohli replied in the negative, his wife stunned him by correctly naming Jhulan Goswami. Lastly, when Kohli asked “which ground is referred to as the Home of Cricket”, Anushka replied in a jiffy by saying “Lord’s”.
The couple played two more rounds — “how well do you know me” and “who is more likely to…” While Anushka won the first round and the second was a tie, the last round ended in a hilarious manner when the actor-cricketer pair answered “who is more likely to be a sore loser”. Anushka pointed at Kohli in a flash, to which the Indian captain agreed and embarrassingly covered his face.
The star couple had been blessed with their first child, a daughter named Vamika, and were spotted together during IPL 14 season. The remainder of IPL 2021 will commence in September-October in the UAE, as confirmed by the BCCI.
Currently, Team India is preparing to leave for the United Kingdom, where they play WTC final — versus New Zealand — followed by five Tests against England in August-September. Anushka is expected to remain with Virat for the entire duration of the long and gruelling tour.
