Post winning the game, when Kohli was called to the podium during the presentation to speak about his dhamakedaar comeback, he credited his wife and actor Anushka Sharma along with his daughter Vamika for giving him space to work on his game and putting things in perspective for him. He thanked her for standing by him through thick and thin.
“I kissed my ring in the celebration as well. You see me standing here like this right now because all the things that have been put in perspective have been done by one person who stood by me through all these difficult times and that’s Anushka and this hundred is especially dedicated to her and our little daughter Vamika as well.”

Just yesterday, an Indian fan stated that marriage is the reason why Indian cricketers especially bowlers aren’t able to perform well on the field. Well, Kohli’s loving gesture for his wife and daughter says it all.
