Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli received a heartfelt hug from his wife, actress Anushka Sharma, after the heartbreaking loss to Australia in the Cricket World Cup 2023 final. Kohli, who was named the player of the tournament for his outstanding batting performances, was unable to secure the trophy for his team despite his impressive contributions. Following Travis Head’s excellent innings that led Australia to victory, Kohli met Anushka in the stands, where she tried to console him with a warm embrace. The photo of the couple hugging has since gone viral on social media.
During the final, Kohli scored 54 runs off 63 balls before being dismissed by Australia’s captain Pat Cummins. His dismissal shocked the crowd at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, including Anushka. Australia successfully chased down a target of 241 runs, with Travis Head’s magnificent century playing a crucial role in securing their sixth ODI World Cup title. Cummins praised his team’s performance, highlighting their ability to adapt to the situation and execute their game plan.
Unfortunately, Kohli’s dream of lifting the World Cup title for the second time has come to an end with this defeat. Whether he will participate in another ODI World Cup in the future remains uncertain. The picture of Anushka consoling Kohli has garnered significant attention and sympathy from fans worldwide.
