On Monday, Virat Kohli became only second Indian cricketer to score two centuries on the pretty unfriendly pitch that South African stadiums are famous for. With his century in ongoing match at Centurion he has also reached to his 21st test century.
However, the highlight (for Twitter users at least) seems to be the moment when Virat celebrated his achievement by giving an adorable tribute to his wife, Anushka Sharma. After reaching the 150-run mark against the South African teams he kissed his wedding ring shutting down all the trolls and criticism.
Virat recently tied the knot with his long-time girlfriend Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma in Tuscany, Italy, and since then his marriage is trending on social media. Be it their lavish two-part wedding reception in Delhi and Mumbai, or Virat learning tricks about romance from Shah Rukh Khan, everything about this couple is trending.
Just after hitting a boundary to get to the landmark, Virat pulled out his wedding ring and kissed it. The television cameras were quick to capture that moment and stream across the world. Here’s what followed on Twitter:
