New Delhi: The day everyone had eagerly been waiting for, seems to have finally arrived. India captain Virat Kohli is all set to marry long-time girlfriend, actress Anushka Sharma. According to reports in India Today, the duo will get married on December 12, in Milan, Italy. The functions will start on December 9.
The reports further suggest that none of the cricketers are invited for the wedding, and is a close and private affair. Also, the reception is expected to be hosted on 21 December. Last year too, during the same time in December, similar reports of the two getting married had come out.
When contacted, Anushka's spokesperson said, "There is absolutely no truth to it (rumours of marriage)."
Virat, last month had raised the issue of workload, and then eventually he was left out of the ODI and T20I squad. On the eve of the 1st Test, Kohli had said that he will ask for rest when required. "Definitely I do need rest, why don't I need rest? When I think of the time my body should be rested, I'll ask for it. I am not a robot you can slice my skin and check I bleed," Kohli had said.
Earlier on Wednesday, India failed to register a win against Sri Lanka, as Roshen Silva and Dhananjaya de Silva displayed a lot of grit, and did not give their wickets away. Kohli complemented the duo for showing the resistance in front of the strong Indian bowling line-up.
