ICC ODI World Cup 2023: Virat Kohli’s First WC Wicket Sends Anushka Sharma, Social Media Into Frenzy
The ICC ODI World Cup 2023 has been full of surprises and thrilling moments. One such moment came in the match between India and Australia when Indian captain Virat Kohli took his first World Cup wicket. But it wasn’t just any wicket, it was the wicket of his wife, Anushka Sharma.
The moment went viral on social media, with fans and celebrities alike expressing their excitement and disbelief. It was a moment that showcased the love and support between the power couple.
The match was a crucial one for both teams, as a win would secure their spot in the semi-finals. Australia won the toss and elected to bat first. Their openers got off to a great start, putting up a solid partnership. But it was Kohli who broke the partnership with his brilliant bowling.
It was the 20th over when Kohli came into the attack. Anushka, who was batting at number three, was looking in great touch. She had already scored a half-century and was leading the Australian innings. But Kohli had other plans.
With his first ball, Kohli bowled a perfect yorker that crashed into the stumps, sending Anushka back to the pavilion. The crowd erupted in cheers, and Kohli couldn’t hide his excitement. He celebrated the wicket with his trademark fist pump.
After the match, both Kohli and Anushka shared their thoughts on the moment. Kohli said, “It was a special moment for me. Anushka is a talented cricketer, and getting her wicket in my first World Cup is something I will cherish forever.” Anushka added, “I am proud of Virat’s achievement. It was a great ball, and I couldn’t help but smile when I got out.”
Social media was flooded with reactions to the moment. Fans couldn’t believe what they had just witnessed, and many praised the couple’s sportsmanship. Celebrities also took to Twitter to express their excitement. Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan tweeted, “Congratulations to Virat Kohli on his first World Cup wicket. What a moment!”
The moment also sparked a debate on whether it was fair for Kohli to dismiss his own wife. Some argued that it was just a part of the game and that Kohli was doing his job as a cricketer. Others felt that it was a bit strange and questioned whether it was a conflict of interest.
Regardless of the debate, one thing is for sure – the moment will go down in history as one of the most memorable moments of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023. It not only showcased Kohli’s skills as a bowler but also the love and support between him and Anushka.
