Virat Kohli and wife Anushka Sharma are expecting their first child, with the Indian cricket team captain announcing the news on Twitter. Kohli shared a couple’s photo with the caption, “And then, we were three! Arriving Jan 2021 ❤️🙏”. Kohli is currently in UAE preparing for the upcoming Indian Premier League. The 13th edition of the IPL is set to begin on September 19. Kohli is set to start training with his team after staying on quarantine for almost a week. The tournament will be played across three venues in UAE-Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah.
Wishes and congratulatory messages started to pour in soon after. While Harbhajan Singh was the first to wish the couple, others too joined in quickly.
