Wife Anushka Sharma’s reaction came on Kohli’s century
New Delhi, Virat Kohli hit his second century in Port of Spain Test against West Indies. This is his 29th Test century. This century is also special for Kohli. Because he has done this in his 500th international match and is the first batsman to score a century in his 500th match. Kohli has scored a century abroad after almost 5 years. He scored the last Test century in 2018 in the Perth Test against Australia. This is Kohli’s 76th century in international cricket. After 500 matches, Kohli is the batsman to score the most centuries. He has gone ahead of Sachin Tendulkar.
Kohli completed his century with a four on the second day of the Port of Spain Test. Often, his actress wife Anushka Sharma, who used to be present in the stadium to watch Virat’s matches, was not in the stadium this time but she saw this special moment of Virat on TV and showered love on him. Anushka shared a picture of Kohli celebrating after the century with a heart emoji on her Instagram story. Looking at this picture, it seems as if Anushka was also watching the match on TV.
