Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are endearingly called by fans as “Virushka”.
The Indian cricket team captain, who returned from Dubai after the T20 World Cup, is practicing before returning to lead the national team in the two Test match series against New Zealand next month.
Kohli, 33, posted a photo of himself playing with a cat that was sitting on his lap. Sitting on a plastic chair in a pair of shorts and t-short, with a towel on his shoulder, the batting icon is seen petting the white and golden-striped cat.
“A quick hello from a cool cat at practice,” Kohli wrote on Instagram, along with a photo.

Among those who commented on the adorable photo was his wife, actor Anushka Sharma. “Hello billi,” she chimed in the comments box.
Kohli responded with on an equally 'punny' note. "Launda from Dilli and Mumbai ki billi (lad from Delhi and cat from Mumbai)."
The cricketer and the Bollywood actor, endearingly called by fans as “Virushka”, are one of the most closely-tracked celebrity couples in India. Two days ago, Kohli posted a photo with Sharma, both with goofy expressions. “My rock,” he said in the caption.
Virat Kohli has opted out of the T20 series against New Zealand and will also miss the first of two Tests against New Zealand.
