Star India batter Virat Kohli is someone who wears his heart on his sleeve whenever he steps foot onto the cricket field. His opponents are aware of his aggression and competitiveness.
Kohli always looks to be involved in the game. Whenever a bowler of his team claims a wicket, Virat celebrates it with absolute passion.
Recently, Kohli’s actor wife Anushka Sharma made a cheeky comment on his on-field celebrations while speaking at an event.
During the event, a video of Virat celebrating a wicket gets played. To which, Anushka said, “Sometimes Virat celebrates more than the bowlers.”
Virat then points towards the TV and said, “Dekho,ye sab cheezein hoti hain moment mein, ye baar baar chala ke aise mat kiya karo yaar, mere ko badi sharam aati hai (See, such things happen in the heat of the moment, don’t play them again, I feel embarrassed)”
When asked to pick the best innings of his career, Kohli replied: “Abhi last match mein (the one in the last match)”
After his response, the crowd started signalling zero as Kohli was dismissed for a duck against Rajasthan Royals when the video was recorded last month.
“Ye bangalore ke crowd hai. Abey tum Bangalore se ho sharam karo yaar. Kitne khush ho rahe hai, dikha bhi rahe hai zero, zero (laughs),” quipped Virat.
Virat Kohli impressed one and all with his exploits in the 2023 edition of IPL. In 14 matches, he amassed 639 runs at an average of 53.25 and a strike rate of 139.82. He smashed two hundreds and six half-centuries this season.
Kohli will be next seen in action during the World Test Championship final against Australia next month.
