January 11, 2021, will be a memorable day for Indian cricket and things just keep getting better. The Indian skipper, Virat Kohli announced that he and Anushka Sharma have been blessed with a baby girl today. The Bollywood actress was admitted to Breach Candy Hospital according to reports on Monday.
“Anushka and the baby are both healthy and we are feeling beyond blessed to start this new chapter of our lives,” Kohli’s tweet reads.
Kohli took paternity to be with Anushka and have the once in a lifetime opportunity to witness the birth of his child as he returned to India after the 1st test in Adelaide with Australia. The couple revealed the news of Anushka’s pregnancy back in August last year and social media was constantly flooding with pictures and wishes for the adorable couple.
Virat Kohli himself took to Twitter to reveal the good news and also thanked his fans for the love and prayers. He also informed that both Anushka and the baby are healthy. “We are thrilled to share with you that we have been blessed with a baby girl this afternoon. We thank you for all the love, prayers and good wishes. Anushka and the baby are both healthy and we are feeling beyond blessed to start this new chapter of our lives. We hope that you can respect our privacy at this time. Love, Virat,” he tweeted.
Meanwhile, team India put out a legendary performance to end the match in a draw which almost seemed like a confirmed defeat. A remarkable knock from Rishav Pant, firm performance of Pujara and the test-defining partnership between Hanuma Vihari and R. Ashwin was the reason for India’s hard-fought achievement to keep the series at bay with both teams staying at 1-1. The series winners will be determined in the last test match at Brisbane.
