Many fans were impressed with his diet but many fans slammed Kohli for including eggs in his diet despite being vegan. He had, in an interview last year, stated that Anushka Sharma, his wife, had helped him in turning vegetarian. It is to be noted that the cricketer never claimed to have turned vegan.
