What Virat Kohli did in 2016, away from the cricket field

India Today logo India Today 28-12-2016

It has been a breakout year for India's Test captain Virat Kohli with 2595 runs and seven hundreds. He also delighted his fans with three double centuries, and 13 fifties.

Kohli scored 1215 runs in 12 Tests, 739 runs in 10 ODIs and 641 runs in 15 T20 internationals this year as his average went above 50 in all three formats of the game.

In a busy and crucial year, the run-machine did manage to take a few, well-deserved, breaks.

1. Trip to Amritsar with family

In February, after the Indian tour of Australia and before the team's Asia Cup campaign, Kohli decided to spend some quality time with his family. After being rested for T20I series against Sri Lanka, Kohli was spotted in at the Golden Temple and Wagha Border with his family.

2. London and Prague with Anushka Sharma

It has been a happy year for the 28-year-old and his girlfriend Anushka Sharma, who reportedly broke up last year but decided to work things out this year. In August, the two lovebirds were spotted spending time and shopping in London.

It was also reported that the emerging legend Kohli paid Anushka a surprise visit in Prague in early November as well, where she was shooting for her upcoming movie 'The Ring'.

Not all eyes were on Yuvraj Singh and Hazel Keech at their Goa wedding. Virat, along with Anushka, got perhaps more attention from the paparazzi this December as pictures of them dancing together went viral on social media.
