Anushka Sharma penned a heartfelt note and dedicated a post to husband and ex
Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli as he stepped down as the test captain
yesterday. Anushka Sharma shared pictures of her in which she is kissing and
hugging Virat Kohli. In another picture, Virat Kohli is seen laughing his
Anushka Sharma’s caption reads “I 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 and I having a chat later that day and 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”.
Anushka Sharma further added about the growth of Virat Kohli as captain and as
an individual. She wrote, “Around you and within you. And yes, I am very proud
of your growth as the captain of the Indian National Cricket team and what
achievements the team had under your leadership. But I’m more proud of the
growth you achieved within you”. She continued writing “In 2014 we were so
young and 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 and gave winning on the 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”.
Suddenly stepping down as test captain, Virat Kohli left everyone in shock,
not only the fans but also the fellow team members. This news left Rohit
