India skipper Virat Kohli started a new inning in life as he tied the knot with his long time girlfriend Anushka Sharma in a hush-hush ceremony in Tuscany on Monday (December 11).
Ever since the news broke, people in social media went frenzy with their warm wishes for the adorable couple. From Bollywood superstars to cricketers all across the globe, almost everyone conveyed their heart-warming wishes to the power couple. However, the congratulatory message of one close friend and fellow RCB batsman AB de Villiers was something that the fans kept waiting for.
Better late than never though, De Villiers recently shared a message on his official app ‘AB17’. In the message, AB remarked that the news took him by surprise. The maverick Proteas batsman also wished the power couple to have many kids in future.
“Congratulations to Virat and Anushka for getting married. Took me by surprise. But I always knew who had a surprise up your sleeve. So, congrats to my good friend Virat, and Anushka. I know you guys are going to have a very happy life together and hopefully many kids to come,” quoted AB de Villiers.
Kohli and De Villiers share a very good rapport besides being a mutual admirer of each other. The duo have been sharing the same dressing room for IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore for some years now. Both AB and Virat will soon be seen locking horns against one another. The Indian captain will head off to South Africa with his Indian teammates on December 27. Virat Kohli's troops are scheduled to play three Tests, six ODIs and three T20Is against the Proteas, with the series opener starting with Cape Town Test on January 5, 2018.
