Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma get an invite from Pakistan!

India-Pakistan battles can get very intense and it’s tough for the fans from either side of the border to digest the defeats in hands of each other. Despite the intensity and the political tension between the two nations, off the field the cricketers from both nations are loved and respected in either side while Bollywood too rules the hearts of fans in both the countries.

Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli’s popularity seems to be spreading beyond the borders and even his girlfriend Anushka Sharma’s fan base in Pakistan is seeing a good rise. During the second One-Day International (ODI) between Pakistan and Zimbabwe at Gadaffi Stadium in Lahore, a Pakistani fan carried a banner stating, “Anushka kabhi ao na Pakistan Kohli ko lay ke,” which means, “Ansukha, sometimes also come to Pakistan along with Kohli.”

No doubt it’s a sweet gesture by the passionate fan but considering the political tensions between the nations and security issues, in all possibility that doesn’t look likely in the near future. But ask any fan and they will tell you why India and Pakistan should play more often.

To the delight of the home fans, Pakistan won the second ODI by six wickets to seal the series and once again Azhar Ali with a brilliant hundred led from the front.
