Afghanistan cricketer Rashid Khan is currently plying his trade in the Indian Premier League (IPL) being played in the UAE. He is featuring for the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and has been performing exceptionally well with the ball. However, the cricketer is now trending for a hilarious reason as Google is showing Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma as his wife and the fans are going gaga over it.

Firstly, Rashid Khan is only 22 years old and is yet to get married. Moreover, Anushka is team India and Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli’s wife. The couple got married on December 11, 2017 in presence of close family and friends in Italy. They are also expecting a baby now by January next year. The adorable couple shared the good news with their fans ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Rather Anushka Sharma has travelled with Kohli to the UAE to be with him during the entire IPL season and is in the bio-secure bubble itself. Coming back to the Google search, it has hilariously gone wrong in this case and even social media is going frenzy over it.

Why is it happening?

While it is loud and clear that Anushka Sharma is Virat Kohli‘s wife, many are baffled to see Google making such a glaring mistake. However, the reason for the same is Rashid Khan naming the Bollywood actress as her favourite in an Instagram chat session back in 2018. In response to the question, the leg-spinner had named Anushka and Preity Zinta as his favourite actresses in Bollywood.

Rashid Khan had trended so much in the headlines and for the same reason, Google has ended up connecting him with Anushka Sharma. However, this shouldn’t bother both of them as the Afghanistan cricketer is currently concentrating on doing well for his team in the IPL. Anushka, on the other hand, is happily staying in the UAE with her husband Virat Kohli who is leading RCB from the front on the field.
