Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli was recently seen along with his wife Anushka Sharma, who went to see him off at Mumbai airport. Virat Kohli will leave for the United Kingdom along with the Indian cricket team for the upcoming tour against England starting July 3
Virat Kohli received a very warm see off from Anushka Sharma as she hugged him. The couple looked quite emotional. Virat Kohli and Co will be in England for 3 Twenty20 Internationals, 3 One-Day Internationals and five Tests which will end on 11 September
Virat Kohli said missing the much-anticipated county stint before the tour of England has turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Kohli at a press conference said, 'In hindsight, when I look at it now, it's the best thing that has happened for me. I wanted to go and experience as this is the place where we haven't played so much as there's big gap of four years and you forget what conditions were when you played last time'
Virat Kohli: I would have gone there feeling 90 percent rather than 110 percent that I feel right now. I would rather be like this as I needed to be fresh for the tour. Although not intended but this is the best thing to have happened
Speaking about his targets, Kohli said, "I was asked this on the last tour of England as well. I said I want to walk around and have coffee. So my thinking is different when I go on tour as I try to literally to enjoy the country."
Virat Kohli had come under major scrutiny by critics for his dismal show during India's tour of England back in 2014, but Kohli feels that it was held on for far too long. Virat Kohli had failed to get a single half-century in the five-Test series that India lost 1-3
Meanwhile, Anushka Sharma had her last release, a horror-thriller Pari back in March 2018. Anushka now has Sanju, based on the life of Sanjay Dutt, alongside Ranbir Kapoor in the title role, Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Vicky Kaushal and others
