Anushka Sharma was seen consoling Virat Kohli after India lost the ICC World Cup 2023 final to Australia. In a photo shared on Twitter, now known as X, Anushka was seen hugging a heartbroken Virat after the match. Australia beat India by six wickets after India set the target of 241. Anushka was seen in the stands with other family members of the Indian cricket team, supporting Virat during the match. In the photo going viral, Virat was seen hugging Anushka while she consoled him.
The photo has left social media users emotional. “They proved “hum sath sath hai” ❤️ #Virushka #ViratKohli ,” a social media user wrote. “The way Anushka supports him ❤️. #ViratKohli #AnushkaSharma,” added another. “Everyone needs a life partner like Anushka Sharma who’s gonna be there with you in both happiness and sadness. ❤️❤️ Virat Kohli is very lucky in love. ❤️ But seeing the 2nd pic actually hurts yaar @imVkohli #ViratKohli @AnushkaSharma #anushkasharma,” a third user wrote.
Hours before Virat and Anushka were reunited, a video from the match’s final few overs surfaced online showing a disappointed Anushka sitting in the stands. The actress was seen fighting back her tears while she waited for the match to end.
Virat performed well during this game and the tournament. The cricketer scored a half century in the World Cup final match. In this tournament, he beat Sachin Tendulkar’s records of most centuries. In the match against New Zealand, which was also the semi finals, Virat hit a ton and made history. He became the only cricketer in the history of ODI cricket to have 50 centuries. Virat was named the Player of the Tournament for his splendid performance.
Anushka was seen time and again at pivotal matches, showing her support to her cricketer husband from the stands.
