Cricketer Virat Kohli’s alleged affair with actor Anushka Sharma may have been doing the rounds for a while, but now, Anuskha seems to have competition from British sports stars. A testimony to this is the recent proposal from Danielle Wyatt (top, inset), a member of the English women’s cricket team to the 25-year-old Indian vice captain.
The 22-year-old, mesmerised by Kohli’s batting during the recently-concluded T20 series, tweeted on April 4, “Kholi marry me (sic).” Her tweet was soon followed by her teammate Katherine Brunt’s tweet on April 6 which read, “@Danni_Wyatt: Kholi marry me!!!” Too late Don he asked me last week!, ;-)”
While the British girls seemed happy fighting over Kohli, an Indian fan tweeted about Virat’s alleged affair with Sharma to Wyatt. “@Danni_Wyatt he is booked to bollywood actress@Anushka Sharma,” read the tweet on April 4, which was met with Wyatt’s confident reply, “nah he ain’t”.
We tried getting in touch with the 25-year-old actor to find out what she feels about this sudden competition, but she was unavailable for comment.
Meanwhile, Virat’s mother, Saroj Kohli, has reportedly hinted her displeasure with all the female attention. “We can’t think of his marriage for another 4-5 years. He has ‘just started’ playing cricket. He has to concentrate on his batting and career ahead,” she has been quoted as saying.
