Anushka Sharma is on cloud nine as her rumoured boyfriend Virat Kohli not just broken ODI records and scored fastest 6000 runs, he in fact blew kiss to her who is witnessing the match from the pavilion. Virat achieved this rare feat by beating former West Indian legend Vivian Richards’s record. Kohli achieved the feat against Sri Lanka on Sunday, after he struck a well made 53 runs. While Richards took 156 matches and 141 innings to reach the milestone in 1989, Virat achieved it in his 144th match and 136th innings.
Kohli, who needed just 50 runs to broke Richards record, made it happen against Sri Lanka on Sunday. Soon after reaching 50, Kohli sent a flying kiss gesture with the bat to his ‘lady love’ Anushka Sharma who was there in stands. Virat was out for 53 and thus scored 6003 runs in his cricket career so far. The 26-yr-old Virat also happens to be the captain of the team. Interestingly, Kohli’s first ODI match was against Sri Lanka ( Aug 2008) and now he achieved this feat also against Sri Lanka. It took six years for Virat to reach 6000 milestone at an impressive ODI average of 51.29 with the help of 20 centuries and 32 half centuries. He’s the 8th Indian to reach the milestone and 47th worldwide. Great going Kohli. Anushka seems to be Kohli’s lucky mascot.
