As Team India’s charismatic captain and one of the finest batsman in the world of cricket is celebrating his 29th birthday today, we give you some of the cutest photos of Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma, a pair who has been successful in keeping their much talked about relation a low key affair along with the words of our captain praising his ‘lady luck’.  

“I must thank the lady luck. You have seen me, you know I had no sense before. Ever since the lady has come into my life, she’s taught me a lot of things”. 

“I’ve learnt a lot, become more sensible in the last 4 years all because of her. She’s taught me how to be more patient and taught me how to utilise the position you are into the fullest.”

“I have never tried to be someone else. But the flip has been because of her. In England in 2014, Anushka was there in my life, she understood what I was going through so she kept me motivated”

“Her support helped me push through, however bad it was for me. She was a constant in that time. Then Australia happened and I ended up scoring runs, in her presence”

“It was a special thing for both of us because she had also faced so much flak. We were being criticised and people were saying this is what happens when you allow girlfriends on the tour.”

“I thought, “if you don’t think this is right then no one can be in a relationship”. According to you all – either get married or remain single. How can that be?”

“A very big reason behind me not hiding my relationship is Zaheer Khan. Luckily he was one of the first guys I spoke to about this and he said whatever you do don’t try to hide it because you’ll stress yourself.”

“And on top of that, you’re in a relationship, you’re not doing anything wrong”

“I’m actually very grateful that my first interaction about this was with Zak”

“Zaheer told me the right thing to do so I’ve followed it ever since”
