Kohli posted a selfie of Anushka with himself and wrote, “Much needed break with my ❤”. The two are in New York where Kohli reached after India finished the tour of West Indies while the Bollywood actress is there to attend IIFA 2017.
The break from cricket for Kohli is after a long home season of Test cricket, followed by Indian Premier League and then the ICC Champions Trophy. India directly flew to West Indies from London after the tournament. Cricket, coupled with controversies regarding his fall-out with former India coach Anil Kumble, has kept Kohli in the news and could be the reason for his “much needed” caption of the photo.
