Virat Kohli credits Anushka Sharma for his success
This is not the first time Virat Kohli has openly praised his wife, rather he has always credited Anushka Sharma for his success. At times, when Anushka faced a lot of flak on internet for Kohli’s poor batting form on the cricket field, the batsman always stood up in her support and stopped the critics from dragging her in that. “People who contribute off the field they deserve a lot of credit as well. My wife who keeps me motivated deserves a lot of credit. She’s been criticized a lot in the past. But she’s one person who’s kept me going throughout the tour,” Kohli had said after his brilliant display with the bat in India’s ODI series win over South Africa in 2018.
