New Delhi:  At Eden Gardens when India brought devastation against Pakistan and pulled a decisive end to a contentious showdown in historic cricket rivalry, there was little to suggest that the Man of the Match, Virat Kohli, would ride high on nationwide congratulations.

Contrary to Virat Kohli’s current situation with Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, the two had a short-but-sweet exchange of texts when the PK actress congratulated Virat Kohli on his performance and India’s win, according to Bollywoodlife.com. The actress, who is a former girlfriend of Kohli, was impressed by Virat’s performance, as it was with all the Indian cricket fans around the world.

But things were not always easy for the duo. After the two officially separated ways, Anushka Sharma bore the brunt of public outrage and ridicule when Virat Kohli was not able to perform at the pitch. And the actress was not spared genuine criticism from the fans when she attended Kohli’s games where India suffered defeat and poor performance.

At ICC World Cup T20 match between India and Pakistan last night, Virat Kohli scored 55 runs, giving the decisive victory to India.
