Every cricketer goes through a tough time and he remembers the people who stood by him during that stressful period forever. Indian batsman KL Rahul had a difficult time too and to his rescue came the star couple Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma.
Kohli and Bollywood actress Anushka invited him for a dinner date during India's tour of Australia back in 2014 when he was going through a rough time. Rahul was comforted by them.
"There was one instance after a match at Melbourne where I had a terrible performance. I was miserable and depressed," said KL Rahul.
"Anushka, who noticed this, came up to my room and asked me to accompany her and Virat to their dinner date. The couple talked me through their similar experiences and that helped me understand how to manage these situations better," he added.
Rahul wasn't alone and that gave him a good feeling. The Karnataka cricketer spent the new year night with the couple. He expressed the gratitude towards them and accepted the two had a positive influence on him.
"They took immense care of me and ensured I was not alone. They even made sure I spent the new year night with them. They are an amazing couple and have really had a powerful influence on me," said Rahul.
The 26-year-old is preparing himself for the major upcoming challenge in England. India will play all three formats there and his form will be key.
