Virat & Anushka looked stunning at the event in their matching outfits. Virat wore a dapper navy suit and looked gorgeous as always, while Anushka was seen wearing a navy long dress with a ruffled collar.
Virat had a brilliant 2016-17 season as he went on to score 1332 runs in 13 games with an average of 74. In the limited overs format, the Delhi batsman amassed 1516 runs in 27 games at an average of 84.22.

In an interview, Virat had lovingly talked about his wife and said, “I have realised a lot of things in the past few years since I’ve been with my wife. Because she is a very spiritual person and I have sort of drifted on that path as well. Now things are unlocking in a way that is very difficult for me to explain to people. But I understand that I was always meant to do this. If I am meant to do this in every lifetime of mine, I will do it 100 times over. It’s a blessing.”
Well, seems like the duo will continue to give us couple goals!
On the professional front, Anushka is currently shooting for Sui Dhaaga with Varun Dhawan and for Zero with Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif. Virat is currently undergoing rehabilitation for a neck injury sustained during the IPL, which ruled him out of his much-debated County assignment for Surrey.
