The Indian cricket team is currently enjoying their short break ahead of the India vs Australia ODI series starting on Friday. Senior batter Virat Kohli who played in the recently passed Asia Cup has been asked to take rest from the first two ODIs of the three-match series against Australia. On Tuesday, Virat and his wife Anushka Sharma celebrated Ganesh Chaturthi at their residence.
Anushka took to her Instagram handle and posted many pictures from Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations. “Happy Ganesh Chaturthi,” she wrote. Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma was spotted wearing a golden colour saree with her hair tied in a sleek bun while Kohli donned the white coloured kurta pyjama during Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations.
Soon after seeing pictures from Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations, fans started showering praises on the family.
“Him in kurta, her in saree,” one of the fans commented.
Just a day after the Asia Cup triumph, the BCCI announced the squad for the upcoming ODI series against Australia. The major highlight was Ravichandran Ashwin’s return to the ODI setup as he played his last ODI back in January 2022. Another highlight was that the management decided to give rest to their veteran players like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Hardik Pandya for a tournament that is being looked at as the final dress rehearsal before the World Cup.
Talking about Virat, he had a decent outing at Asia Cup 2023 where he smashed his 47th ODI and 77th international century against Pakistan in the Super Four stage. He made 129 runs in three innings. This series will also mark India’s last assignment before the high-octane ICC Cricket World Cup, starting at home on October 5.
Anushka on the other hand will be spotted in the upcoming sports biopic film ‘Chakda Xpress’ which is based on the life of former Indian cricketer Jhulan Goswami.
