Virat Kohli came up with a special knock on his marriage anniversary in the 3rd T20I between India and West Indies in Mumbai on Wednesday. His unbeaten 70 off 29 balls – his fastest T20I fifty – took India to a mammoth score of 240/3 in 20 overs. As he was walking off after his innings, he blew a kiss to the stands and raised his bat in a celebratory gesture.

Kohli and Anushka Sharma – his wife, who was in the stands at the Wankhede for the 3rd T20I on Wednesday, had tied the knot on December 11 in 2017.

In a Twitter post on Wednesday morning, the two-year-anniversary of their marriage, Kohli said: “In reality there is only love and nothing else. And when god blesses you with the person who makes you realise that everyday, you have just one feeling, gratitude.”

A few hours after the post, he would terrorize the West Indies bowling attack with as many as seven sixes in his whirlwind knock.
