Virat Kohli calls her wife Anushka Sharma the biggest blessing of his life

Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli has been praised by former West Indies legend Viv Richards. He praised Kohli by saying he loved the way Kohli 'gave it back' to the Australian players, who love to sledge their opponents, in 2014. It is seen in a video posted by Board of Control for Cricket in India on their website in which Kohli turned anchor for Richards.

"In 2014, we went to England and I had a very bad tour. But the next one was Australia which was even more hostile and tough. The thing that helped me at that time was visualisation. Three months before going to Australia, I started visualising that I'm taking these bowlers on and I'm going to dominate and come out on top, and that for me was a revelation. I had so much belief because of putting the thought," Kohli said.

Richards while replying to Kohli said: "I think you scored four centuries there. I was in Australia at the same time. We were doing the Big Bash. The Australians can be, in my opinion, bullies at times, they try to talk you out, but you gave it back and I love that. And not just giving it back, you (Kohli) gave it back with interest with the way in which you perform."

Kohli also complimented his wife Anushka Sharma, whom Kohli feels helped him a lot, "Actually, it's been the biggest blessing in my life apart from being blessed to play this sport. To find the right person. Because she is a professional herself, she totally understands my space. She guides me in the right direction," the cricketer said.

"The thing that I have learned from us being together is that if you are willing to do things which are right in your life, off the field, and doing the difficult things and standing by them, I think that creates your personality to go on the field and do the same thing," he added.
