Anushka Sharma (@AnushkaSharma) December 11, 2017 With a combined 35 million followers on Twitter, Virat and Anushka are undoubtedly the nation's most popular power couple - if he is destroying the opposition's bowling attack on the cricket field, she is taking the country by storm with her stellar performances on the big screen.
In the past, Kohli had often said how Anushka had made him a more matured person and has lauded her presence in his life. The two started dating after meeting during the shooting of an advertisement. Kohli, has since been virtually unstoppable.
Kohli has hammered 19 ODI hundreds and 17 Test hundreds since 2013. That means 36 of his 52 international hundreds have been scored since the time he met Anushka.
Over the course of 2017, Kohli also broken Brian Lara's record for most double hundreds as Test captain and finished the year with a staggering 2818 runs including 11 hundreds in international cricket.
Kohli has also been on fire as captain, leading his team to the top of the ICC Test rankings. Kohli had asked for a short break from the limited-overs matches against Sri Lanka and said the packed scheduled over the last two years had taken a toll.
After defeating Sri Lanka in the three-match Test series, Virat Kohli asked for a break from international cricket before the challenging South Africa tour starting January 5. "I am not a robot," he had said on the issue of Indian cricketers playing non-stop cricket.
