Rohit’s double ton has come as a double bonanza for the fans as firstly, the fans were waiting for the marriage of Virat and Anushka. Right from the day Virat was rested for the ODI series, there were speculations that the pair might tie the knot soon.
With images of the bride and her family coming out, it was almost confirmed that they will soon get hitched and it was merely a matter of a couple of days when, on the day of marriage, these two themselves confirmed the news.
They did not disappoint their fans as many clips and photos came out which was a treat for all the fans.
A double ton from Rohit Sharma soon followed which gave another special feeling. Incidentally, the innings came on the day when Rohit was celebrating his second marriage anniversary and he also dedicated his innings to his wife, who was witnessing the game live from the VIP box.
