After having scored just 34 runs in four innings against England, Virat Kohli wasn’t feeling very confident. His latest performance was an unfortunate golden duck at Lord’s. To make matters worse, it was reported that Kohli’s girlfriend, Anushka Sharma, a big-time Bollywood actress and model, took time out of her schedule to be with her man.
Unfortunately for Kohli, the good luck charm did nothing for him as he continues to struggle against England.
Kohli was abysmal in his first two innings of the opening Test, scoring just 1 and 8, respectively, in the innings. According to media reports out of England and India, Kohli seeked the support of Sharma. They were seen in public, acting casually on Wednesday.
He did put up 25 runs after she touched down in England, but was bowled by Liam Plunkett on Saturday for a golden duck.
“The two have been spending a lot of time together and look really happy in each other’s company,” said one source. “The happiness faded on the cricket field.”
Perhaps all this is just a creation of the media as Kohli, also, has travelled to Sri Lanka and Jodhpur to support Sharma in her films. She had also visited New Zealand when Kohli and India were touring in New Zealand.
