Anushka Sharma, Virat Kohli to marry soon, confirms BCCI

Lovebirds Anushka Sharma and cricketer Virat Kohli might not planning to get married anytime soon but BCCI had already choked out Virat and Anushka’s wedding. BCCI used marriage as a weapon to justify Anushka’s presence with Virat in England.  BCCI had permitted Anushka Sharma to accompany her boyfriend and cricketer Virat Kohli to the England series.

To convince the team management, BCCI told that the duo will get married very soon.

Speaking to Mail Today, a BCCI official informed that they told the officials travelling with the team that it was just a matter of time before the duo ties the nuptial knot.

"The team management was slightly taken aback when the BCCI approved Kohli's plea of letting Anushka stay with him. But they were told there was no reason to worry as the two were planning to get married. And this isn't the first time such a thing was happening. A captain's girlfriend had travelled with the team in the past as well," he said.

 The story doesn’t end here, the BCCI also told them that Kohli would smartly handle the situation and the media and Anushka’s presence won’t get preference.

"When the management enquired on how to handle the media if they questioned her presence with the vice-captain, they were told that Kohli can handle the media attention and wouldn't let the cat out of the bag," he said.

The official added that Anushka's presence had nothing to do with Kohli's poor form, the official said: "Unlike football, Test cricket is played for eight hours. And when the mind is on picking and dropping friends, the result will be visible on the field itself. Off-field activities definitely play on the mind."

But another official said that Virat's poor performance in the series further exaggerate the matter, "If the duo was married, nobody would have said a word. We all know how Indian culture is. And the lack of form ended up serving as fodder for the media. If he had scored runs, they would have ignored the whole issue," he said.

Anushka and Virat have been dating for quite a long time but the duo never declared their relationship in public though they were clicked together in various occasions.
