Virat Kohli on meeting Anushka

“I remember this was 2013, I was just named captain for the Zimbabwe tour. My manager came to me and told me that I was going to shoot with Anushka Sharma. As soon as I heard this, I was so nervous. Like how the hell am I gonna do this? I was really nervous,” 

Virat Kohli further added that

“Out of nervousness, I didn’t realise how tall she was. So the first thing I told her when I saw her heels was, ‘Didn’t you get anything higher to wear?’ and she was like ‘Excuse me?’ It was so bad, I was so nervous. But then I figured out that she was a normal person and when we got talking I realized our background was so similar. From there on we became friends and then gradually we started dating, it didn’t happen instantly,” 

Virat is currently in Chennai for the ODI series decider against the Aussies. Australia won the second match by 10 wickets. The toss for the 3rd ODI is won by Steve Smith who decided to bat first. Warner and Agar come back into the playing 11. India goes unchanged.
