India captain Virat Kohli is an inspiration to many. Not only is he one of India's greatest batters, but he is also among the best in the world with several cricketing experts and pundits already batting for him as the GOAT- the Greatest of All Time. As he turns 33 today, the entire social media and internet is full of messages and wishes for Kohli who will lead Team India against Scotland in their T20 World Cup game later on Friday.

However, one post and message that has stood out among others is the post from his wife actor Anushka Sharma. The Bollywood star is with the Indian captain in UAE, where the T20 World Cup 2021 is taking place. She took to Instagram to post an emotional message for her husband which she wrote alongside an adorable picture of the couple.

"No filter needed , for this photo and the way you lead your life . Your core is made of honesty and guts of steel . Courage that pales doubt into oblivion. I know no one who can pick themselves up from a dark place like you can," she wrote.

"You grow better in every way because you hold on to nothing in you as permanent and are fearless . I know we are not ones to talk to each other through social media like this but sometimes I just want to scream and tell the world what an amazing man you are," she added.

"Fortunate are those who really truly know you . Thank you for making everything brighter and more beautiful ♥️

Oh , and Happy Birthday cuteness," she wrote in the concluding lines of her message.

Kohli will no longer be the captain of the T20I side after the ongoing World Cup. He has also announced his decision to leave the captaincy of his Indian Premier League franchise- the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Meanwhile, there are reports suggesting that Kohli could also lose his ODI captaincy as the team might be looking at a separate captain for India in white-ball formats. However, Kohli will continue to be at the helm in Test match cricket where has led the country to great heights and fell tantalizingly short of winning the inaugural ICC World Test Championship earlier this year.
