Former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi congratulated newlyweds, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma after the couple tied the knots on Monday (December 11) in Italy.

The India skipper and the Bollywood actress had kept the whole matter under the cover and confirmed the news only after getting married.

Both Kohli and Anushka posted messages on Twitter which read:

 “Today we have promised each other to be bound in love for ever. We are truly blessed to share the news with you.This beautiful day will be made more special with the love and support of our family of fans & well wishers. Thank you for being such an important part of our journey.”

And as soon as the couple confirmed the good news, Afridi, who shares a good rapport with the Indian batting star, took to Twitter to post a congratulatory message.

“Congratulations @imVkohli @AnushkaSharma on your wedding. May God Bless you two and give you happiness and a rewarding married life,”  the legendary allrounder wrote on Twitter.

The niceties between Kohli and Africa, meanwhile, is well-known in the cricketing fraternity. Kohli had gifted the swashbuckling all-rounder his jersey, signed by all the players, to Shahid Afridi when he retired from the international cricket last April. Earlier this year, Kohli had gifted Afridi a signed bat.


An avid cricket lover, I just love this game more than anything. Writing about cricket keeps me closer to the game.
