Year 2021 will start on the best possible note for Virat Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma as the couple are expecting their first child. The India cricket captain, on Thursday, announced that he and his wife are expecting their first child in January 2021.
The cricket superstar and the Bollywood actress had tied the knot in December 2017 in Italy. Coming to Virat Kohli’s announcement, he posted an adorable picture of himself standing with his wife Anushka Sharma on Twitter. Anushka’s baby bump was visible in the photo as the cricket star wrote:

Last month, Virat Kohli’s teammate Hardik Pandya welcomed his first child too along with his partner Natasa Stankovic. Currently in UAE, Virat Kohli will be seen in action next month when the IPL starts. Just like his other teammates, he has also not played since March due to pandemic.
Virat Kohli will be hoping that the good news will finally help him turn the fortunes of his IPL team around as Royal Challengers Bangalore eye their first-ever title. They have made it to the final of the competition thrice – 2009, 2011 and 2016 – but ended up on the wrong side of the result on every occasion. Their performance in the last few years has been a lot worse.
Since making it to the final in 2016, they have not managed to make it past the league stage. In last three seasons, they have finished at the bottom twice while on the other occasion, they finished at a lowly sixth spot in the eight-team competition. IPL 2020 is scheduled to start on September 19 while the final is on November 10.
