There are a lot of people who don't get name and success at their first attempt, like Indian cricketer KL Rahul who failed to impress everyone on his debut Test match by only scoring a 3 & 1 in two innings.
But, thankfully he had lovely couple Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma by his side. That time, Anushka is not Virat Kohli's wife but she was a dotting Bhabhi for Rahul.
He said, “Both of them (Anushka and Virat) have been very good to me and I have a great story to tell you. Anushka was there to watch the Melbourne match. She could see that I was down and dejected (with personal performance) while my thoughts were all over. Anushka came to my room and told me she isn't going to let me sit alone and think about cricket and added that she and Virat are going to take him out.”
At the Melbourne Cricket Ground, where Rahul made his Test debut but he had low scores in two innings that made him feel low. So, it was Virsuhka who cheered him up. They invited him to their dinner date night.
Rahul also talked about Anushka shared her failure story to teach him and she explained how a lot of people in their lives face failures in the first attempt, “I third wheeled on one of the dinner dates. Both Virat and Anushka shared their stories describing moments when they had endured failure in their careers. That made me feel like that I wasn't the only one who ruined his first impression. We had a week's break before the next game and they took me out every time with them. They are a powerful couple and have had a great influence on me as a couple.”
Rahul feels Anushka was very sweet to him and about his unexpected gesture he said, “It was nice of Anushka to do it as I didn't know how she could understand what I was going through. We still stay in touch and exchange a few messages, although Anushka's are about my dog mostly.”
