Amid the rumours of Virat Kohli marrying Anushka Sharma in Italy this month, the CEO of one of the most renowned Australian cricket grounds has wished to host Indian captain’s wedding. The CEO of Adelaide Oval—Andrew Daniels—has shown interest in hosting Anushka and Virat’s wedding at one of the world’s iconic stadiums.
As reported by the Hindustan Times, Daniels and his management team would be ‘thrilled’ to host Virat’s wedding at the Adelaide Oval. In a statement, he said, “We would be thrilled to host Virat and Anushka’s wedding at Adelaide Oval. It would be fantastic for Virat to create more happy memories here, considering his outstanding playing history at the Oval.”
Daniels also gave details on how the Adelaide Oval staff would make this function memorable (only if Virat agrees). He said, “With 26 purpose-built function spaces to choose from, combined with a showcase of South Australia’s finest food and wine it would be an unforgettable day for the future Mr and Mrs Kohli and their guests.”
Well, it’s no less than an honour for an international cricketer to receive such an offer. Moreover, Kohli getting married to the love of his life at the venue ground where he had scored more than 600 runs—including 3 international hundreds—is like living the plot of a feel-good Bollywood movie. But well, it is yet to be confirmed whether Virat and Anushka would actually tie the knot at the year-end as the latter’s spokesperson rubbished the reports of the Bollywood starlet getting married.
After having gala time against Sri Lanka in the Test series, Kohli has been given a rest for the remainder of Sri Lanka’s tour of India. He will be joining the team during the South Africa tour, which slated to start from January 5. While receiving the ‘Man of the Series’ award in Delhi, Kohli stressed that he had been playing continuously for the last 48 months. Now he needed to rest.
Kohli scored a mammoth 610 runs against the Lankans in the Test series—including 2 double centuries, one half-century and a ton. He also scored a total of 2818 international runs in 2017.
