With the buzz going around that Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma entering wedlock soon earlier in the week, it turns out that those were just rumours and it was conformed by the Bollywood actress’ representative. For several months now, the rumours have been going strong with Anushka and Virat dating each other. Both parties, however have never confirmed or denied the rumour.

To put an end to all the marriage rumours floating around, Anushka Sharma’s representative said, “There are several stories online about Anushka Sharma’s impending wedding. However I would like to set the record straight that there is absolutely no truth to these rumours and I would like to request you to refrain from conjecturing about the same.

Eariler, a report stated that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has allowed the Indian vice-captain and batting mainstay and Anushka Sharma to stay in the same hotel during the team’s ongoing tour of England.

In a deviation from its norms, the BCCI announced its decision keeping in mind the mental pressure that the cricketers are expected to go through on this grueling two and a half month-tour, reports suggested.

The team management had allowed for the cricketers to take their wives along with them in the past. This time however, the authorities have allowed the players to bring their girlfriends along for the tour. Though there was no comment from the management, Kohli  is learnt to have received a nod from the BCCI for his request.
