India’s batting star Virat Kohli‘s fan-following across the globe is second to none. The India captain has taken international cricket by storm in the last few years with his extraordinary batting prowess. At just 28, he is third in the list of most centuries and needs just 3 more to surpass the legendary Ricky Ponting‘s 30 centuries. In the last season, he scored four double-centuries in as many Test series and recently led India to the final of the ICC Champions Trophy which was his first ICC tournament as captain. Arguably the best batsman in the world right now, Kohli, who is the world number one ODI and T20I batsman, has left the fans mesmerised with his consistent performances. And while the fans are surely spellbound by the right-handed batsman, there are also some English women cricketers who are in Kohli’s long list of admirers.
Here are those 4 England cricketers who have expressed their liking for the India heartthrob:
The England wicketkeeper-batswoman, during an interaction on Twitter, had said that Kohli was her favourite Indian cricketer.

The England fast-bowler’s became a Kohli fan after watching him in action for Royal Challengers Bangalore during her lodging at the M.Chinnaswamy in 2011.
Wyatt is such a big admirer of the Indian batting mainstay that she once gave him a marriage proposal on Twitter. The English allrounder gave the proposal after Kohli scored a blistering half-century against South Africa in the 2014 World T20 semifinal.
Kholi marry me!!!

Just after Wyatt’s proposal, Brunt showed her liking for Kohli by commenting that she was too late because the Indian batsman had asked her out the previous week.
