India captain Virat Kohli and his wife actress Anushka Sharma apparently introduced the world to the boy who made the sought-after couple wait for a selfie. The boy is none other than a cute dog. It looks like the couple were at a grocery store in the United Kingdom. Kohli took to Twitter to share the adorable picture. It was captioned as, “Met this beautiful boy who was patient enough to take a picture with us.”
Earlier in the day, former India captain MS Dhoni posted a video in which he was playing with his dogs. Dhoni captioned the video as, “A bit of hugging, training, catching practice and getting unconditional love in return.priceless.”
Dhoni is not a part of the Indian Test set-up as he has retired from Test cricket in 2014, to prolong his limited-overs career. Recently, he was a part of the Indian team in coloured clothes in the United Kingdom.
Meanwhile, Kohli’s scores of 97 and 103 at Nottingham took him to a career-best 937 points in ICC’s latest Test rankings.
The 29-year-old had reached the number one spot after totalling 200 runs in the first Test at Edgbaston, but scores of 23 and 17 at Lord’s meant he slipped back down.
He is now only one point outside the top 10 of an all-time rating points list: Don Bradman (961 points), Steve Smith (947), Len Hutton (945), Jack Hobbs and Ricky Ponting (both on 942), Peter May (941), and Gary Sobers, Clyde Walcott, Vivian Richards and Kumar Sangakkara (all on 938 points).
With India winning at Nottingham, it makes the 4th Test at Southampton interesting as the visiting side now has the confidence and the conditions there will suit the Indian style of play.
Here is the Indian team for the last two Tests.
Virat Kohli (C), Dhawan, Rahul, Prithvi Shaw, Pujara, Rahane, Rishabh Pant (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ashwin, Jadeja, Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Shami, Umesh Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Karun Nair, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Hanuma Vihari
