Rajkumar Sharma was Virat Kohli’s first coach. Under Sharma, Kohli played at different cricket academies and won many trophies. In an interview, his coach Sharma said “He oozed talent. It was so difficult to keep him quiet. He was a natural in whatever he did and I was most impressed with his attitude. He was ready to bat at any spot, and I had to literally push him home after the training sessions. He just wouldn’t leave.”

For some time, Virat had to stay away from her and proved that they both have broken apart. He worked in his gameplay and again came out like a gemstone. Then the couple got married – Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli in a very secret manner. That wasn’t actually secret but no one expected their marriage. They got married in Italy and the only people who attended their wedding were close relatives. After their wedding, the couple threw a grand reception party at Delhi and one at Mumbai.
