Anushka Sharma pens a heartfelt note after Virat Kohli steps down as Test captain

Virat Kohli recently made a lot of buzz after stepping down as the Captain of Indian Test Cricket Team after serving the position for seven years. He made the announcement through an Instagram post after which he got immense support and wishes for future from fans, friends and Bollywood stars. On Sunday, Virat's wife Anushka Sharma took to Instagram to pen an heartfelt note for the him in which she elaborated how the captaincy improved Virat's overall personality.

Anushka shared a couple of pictures of Virat in test jersey and wrote, "I remember the day in 2014 when you told me that you have been made the captain as MS had decided to retire from test cricket. I remember MS, you & I having a chat later that day & him joking about how quickly your beard will start turning grey. We all had a good laugh about it. Since that day, I’ve seen more than just your beard turning grey. I’ve seen growth. Immense growth. Around you & within you. And yes, I am very proud of your growth as the captain of the Indian National Cricket team & what achievements the team had under your leadership. But I’m more proud of the growth you achieved within you."

The actress further added, "In 2014 we were so young & naive. Thinking that just good intentions, positive drive & motives can take you ahead in life. They definitely do but, not without challenges. A lot of these challenges that you faced were not always on the field. But then, this is life right? It tests you in places where you least expect it to but where you need it the most. And my love, I am so proud of you for not letting anything come in the way of your good intentions. You led by example & gave winning on field every ounce of your energy to the extent that after some losses I’ve sat next to you with tears in your eyes, while you wondered if there's still something more you could have done."

She concluded by saying, "This is who you are & this is what you expected from everyone. You've been unconventional & straightforward. Pretence is your foe & this is what makes you great in my eyes & the eyes of your admirers. Because underneath all this were your pure, unadulterated intentions always. And not everyone will be able to truly understand that."
