Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are on a roll. The power couple made it to a list of the world’s top Instagram influencers which was compiled by global data collection and analysis platform, Hype Auditor. Besides Virushka, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone also featured in the top 50.
1000 Instagram accounts were ranked in order of influence with focus given to the quality of the audience and the authentic engagement. Cristiano Ronaldo topped the list while Virat Kohli was the highest-ranking Indian at number 11.
Now, according to media reports, we hear that former Australian cricketer, Brett Lee, has invited Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma to have their baby in Australia. The actress is set to give birth soon and the Indian skipper is naturally not going to miss such an important event. Hence, Kohli will be missing the last three Test matches of the series and will head home to prepare for the birth of his child.
“If you would like Mr. Kohli, you are welcome to have your child in Australia. Because we will accept you. If you have a little girl, fantastic. If you have a little boy, fantastic. They might become a Baggy Green,” Brett Lee told Mid-Day in an interview.
The BCCI had released an official press release that stated Indian skipper Virat Kohli will be absent for a few Test matches against Australia. The news did not go well with Indian fans and many voiced their anger on Twitter.
Harsha Bhogle commented on Kohli’s decision by tweeting, “For the modern player, there is more to life than just his profession. But for the Indian team, the tour just got tougher.”
