England women star Danielle Wyatt is the latest to be smitten by Virat Kohli’s awesome batting displays. Soon after Kohli led India into the ICC World T20 2014 final on Friday, Danelle tweeted: “Kholi marry me”. Forget the spelling error, Danielle’s message left nobody in doubt. This brought about a series of interesting responses. Read more on Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma
Some replied to her tweet, “He is booked to bollywood actress @AnushkaSharma” to which the English cricketer replied, “Nah he ain’t”!
Danielle, who will be 23 later this month, has played 32 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and 50 T20 Internationals.
Earlier, on Friday, Kohli starred with a brilliant unbeaten 72 as India pulled off a comprehensive six-wicket win over South Africa.
India, winners in 2007, will be facing neighbours Sri Lanka in Sunday’s title-clash which will be a repeat of the 2011 50-overs World Cup final. If they win, India will be the only team to hold the World Cup, Champions Tophy and the World T20 title at the same time.
Opting to bat first, South Africa did well to post a challenging total of 172 for four in 20 overs with skipper Faf du Plesis scoring a quick-fire 41-ball 58 while Jean Paul Duminy made an unbeaten 45 off 40 balls.
India made a mockery of what looked like a stiff target and cruised to 176 for four with five balls to spare as Kohli struck a blistering 44-ball unbeaten 72. Ajinkya Rahane (32), Rohit Sharma (24), Suresh Raina (21) and Yuvraj Singh (18) also made valuable contributions.
But it was Kohli’s knock that made the difference and the young batsman single-handedly took away the match from South Africa with his aggressive knock that was studded with five fours and two sixes, IANS reported.
