Things have never been the same ever since then. Whenever their teams have clashed in the Indian Premier League, both have been fired up to display their potential best in the field.

Meanwhile, Virat had earlier taken a break from the international schedule sighting rest. While there were speculations regarding their marriage in the media, it became official only after they posted pictures from the wedding ceremony.

However, the Indian skipper is slated to return to action for the South African tour commencing early next year. His presence was sorely missed in the first ODI against Sri Lanka. India will be focusing to make things right in the ongoing series.
