After smashing 70 runs off just 29 balls against West Indies in the series decider, skipper Virat Kohli termed his match-winning knock a ‘special gift’ for wife Anushka Sharma. “It was a pretty special inning, also being our second year wedding anniversary today. It’s a special gift for my wife,” Kohli said at the post-match ceremony.
“Yaa it was a special night and one of the best innings I have played in T20 and batting first we won so I feel pretty good,” he added. India defeated West Indies by 67 runs in the third and final T20I of the three-match series on Wednesday.

Earlier, Kohli took to social media to share a black-and-white picture with Anushka along with the caption: “In reality there is only love and nothing else. And when God blesses you with the person who makes you realise that everyday, you have just one feeling, gratitude.”
“Hashtag Virushka” garnered 4,702 tweets, with fans of both congratulating them and extending good wishes. Many fans posted wedding pictures of the celebrity couple. One fan posted a clipping from their wedding and wrote: “You both are the best example of an Ideal Couple.”
Anushka also posted a black-and-white throwback picture from their wedding on Instagram: “To love another person is to see the face of God” - Victor Hugo. The thing about love is that it’s not just a feeling, it’s much more than that. It’s a guide, a propeller, a path to the absolute truth. And I am blessed, truly, wholly blessed, to have found it.”
