Anushka Sharma has paid a heartfelt tribute to her husband Virat Kohli as the latter steps down as India’s Test captain. A day after India’s Test series defeat South Africa, Kohli took to social media platforms and informed about his major decision. The decision left the entire cricket world in shock as Kohli had done an exceptional job as Test skipper. While many expressed their sadness with the development, several also congratulated the 33-year-old.
As Kohli took such a massive decision, a post from his wife Anushka was on the cards. On Sunday (January 16), the Bollywood actress took to Instagram and made an emotional post. Sharing Kohli’s picture in the Test jersey, Anushka recalled how his husband became India’s Test captain in 2014 after MS Dhoni decided to step down from the position.

“I remember the day in 2014 when you told me that you have been made the captain as MS had decided to retire from test cricket. I remember MS, you & I having a chat later that day & him joking about how quickly your beard will start turning grey. We all had a good laugh about it. Since that day, I’ve seen more than just your beard turning grey,” wrote Anushka.
“I’ve seen growth. Immense growth. Around you & within you. And yes, I am very proud of your growth as the captain of the Indian National Cricket team & what achievements the team had under your leadership. But I’m more proud of the growth you achieved within you. In 2014 we were so young & naive. Thinking that just good intentions, positive drive & motives can take you ahead in life,” she added.

Anushka further stated that the right-handed batter did his job with utmost honesty and good intentions. “They definitely do but, not without challenges. A lot of these challenges that you faced were not always on the field. But then, this is life right? It tests you in places where you least expect it to but where you need it the most. And my love, I am so proud of you for not letting anything come in the way of your good intentions,” opined the actress.
“You held on to nothing with greed, not even this position & I know that. Because when one holds on to something so tightly they limit themselves & you, my love, are limitless. Our daughter will see the learning of these 7 years in the father that you are to her. You did good,” she concluded.
