India captain Virat Kohli has given all the credit to his wife Anushka Sharma for changing him as a person and for helping him to see different perspectives in life as well. In a recent conversation with India teammate Mayank Agarwal on “Open Nets with Mayank”, Virat Kohli shared his views about Anushka Sharma.
He said, “I give Anushka full credit for making me see a different side of things altogether. I’m so grateful that Anushka is my life partner as she made me realise a lot of things that are to do with the larger picture. My responsibility as a player, my responsibility with who I am today, what that brings along with it. Setting an example for people in the right manner. All these things have come from Anushka”.
Virat Kohli further added, “If I hadn’t met Anushka I might not have changed as I was not an open person and was very rigid and she’s made me change as a person for good”.
Last week, during the first part of the online chat show with Mayank Agarwal, Virat Kohli had revealed that he once baked a cake for Anushka on her birthday and how his mother reacted seeing him slim and trim.
“My mom used to tell me that I am becoming weak. That is a very regular thing, any mother would say. They (mothers) didn’t understand the difference between having concern and having professionalism about a sport you’re playing,” Kohli said in the video.
“If the child is not looking chubby, that means there”s something wrong with him or he is sick. So I was always like I am not sick. Every other day I had to convince her that I am not sick and I am doing this because I want to play. It was so difficult to convince her,” he further added.
Virat Kohli again said, “That was funny at times but also annoying at times because you are following a regime and next day when you wake up and hear that ”Tu toh beemaar lag raha hai” (you are looking sick)… But yeah, good times.”
With the Indian Premier League (IPL) is all set to take place in UAE from September 19, Virat Kohli will be featured for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Kohli has played 177 matches and scored a whopping 5,412 runs with an average of 37.84 and a strike rate of 131.61. With five centuries and thirty-six half-centuries, he is the highest run-scorer in the cash-rich league.
