Kohli – who was with the Indian cricket team in Australia – is on paternity leave. He left Australia after the completion of the limited-overs games and the Adelaide Test. He returned to India to be with his wife in such a time.
It was Kohli who took to Twitter and made the huge announcement of the birth.
His post read: “We are thrilled to share with you that we’ve been blessed with a baby girl this afternoon. We thank you all for your love, prayers, and good wishes. Anushka and the baby are both healthy and we are feeling beyond blessed to start this new chapter of our lives. We hope that you can respect our privacy at this time. Love, Virat (sic).”
He will be a part of the Indian team in the upcoming series against England at home.
