Anushka Sharma Consoles Heartbroken Virat Kohli After CWC 2023 Final Loss, Picture Of Hug Goes Viral
Cricket World Cup 2023, India vs Australia: Virat Kohli was consoled by his wife Anushka Sharma after the hosts suffered a heartbreaking loss in the final.
Virat Kohli batted like a dream in the Cricket World Cup 2023 but his efforts were not enough to help Team India win their third 50-over World Cup title. The batter finished with 765 runs in 11 matches, and he even played a knock of 54 runs in the summit clash against Australia, but the innings went in vain, as Australia ended up defeating India by six wickets at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad. Virat Kohli was adjudged as Player of the Tournament, but probably this accolade would not mean anything to the maverick batter, who gave it his all for a World Cup triumph, but it was just not meant to be.
After the match came to an end, Virat Kohli was seen being consoled by his wife Anushka Sharma. The actress was seen giving a hug to her husband. The picture is now going insanely viral on social media.
After Virat Kohli received the Player of the Tournament award, there was no emotion on his face, and he was seen as dejected.

For the unversed, Virat Kohli scored 54 runs before being dismissed by Australia captain Pat Cummins. His dismissals sent shockwaves across the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Even, Anushka Sharma was left stunned.
After the match came to an end, Virat Kohli was also seen speaking with Sachin Tendulkar.
For the unversed, India had lost the 2003 World Cup final against Australia as well, and that time around, Sachin Tendulkar was chosen as the Player of the Tournament.
Talking about the final, Team India were asked to bat first and the side was bundled out for 240.
Australia then chased down the target in 43 overs with six wickets in hand. Travis Head was named as Player of the Match for his knock of 137 runs off just 120 balls.
The all-important game was even attended by the likes of Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Ayushmann Khurrana, among others.
