Virat, in an interview with BCCI spoke about his wife, said that she was his pillar of strength. The top-order batter said: “Anushka (Sharma) has been a huge, huge influence in my life. Not just you know, eventually the influence in your life that filters down to your game as well because your game is part of life. I have become a completely changed man for all the right reasons. I have evolved in the right way. I am very, very grateful and thankful to God to have a life partner like her and she’s been an absolute pillar of strength for me.”
Virat and Anushka got married in 2017 after having dated for several years. They welcomed daughter Vamika to the family last year.
