England's Test match summer is about to resume with their five-match Test series against India. Prior to that, Virat Kohli & Co had already reached United Kingdom in June as they had to participate in the ICC World Test Championship final against New Zealand at Southampton last month. Post losing the summit clash, the cricketers enjoyed a couple of weeks break with their families and have now reassembled in Durham where they will play a warm-up match, beginning on July 20.
However, it is a post shared by captain Virat Kohli's wife Anushka Sharma, which is now trending on social media. Her post has left the fans in splits as she has shared a few pictures with her "fan" who happens to be none other than her husband Virat Kohli. The picture seems to be from the break which they enjoyed in between Kohli's cricketing assignments.
"Was just casually prancing around town. Running a hand through my hair. A fan spotted me. I obliged for a picture. He seemed happy . Anything for my fans ! 🤭😝❤️

While Kohli-led India are gearing up for the Test series, a separate white-ball squad led by Shikhar Dhawan will play Sri Lanka three in three ODIs and as many T20Is in the island country. The series is set to commence on Sunday. While the touring party looks a second string side and has six uncapped players, it also has experience in the form of Dhawan himself along with vice-captain Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav.
Talking about India's prep for the England series, the team has been handed a massive blow ahead of their warm up match as wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant has tested positive for Coronavirus. In fact, his backup Wriddhiman Saha has also been sent for isolation after he was deemed a close contact of yet another positive member from the contingent. In their absence, KL Rahul is likely to assume the role of a wicket-keeper, although he has only kept wickets for India in limited-overs cricket.
