Anushka Sharma pens an emotional note for Virat Kohli as he resigns from test captaincy

Cricketer Virat Kohli has recently stepped down as the Test Captain of the Indian cricket team. Now, his actress-wife, Anushka Sharma, has penned a lengthy note dedicated to her husband. Taking to her Instagram handle, Anushka shared a couple of pictures of Virat wearing the white Test Jersey along with an emotional note detailing how proud she is of him and his seven-year journey as the Test captain. She also said that their daughter, Vamika, will see the learning of these seven years in her father. Sharing pictures of Virat and her, she 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.' While expressing how proud she is of her cricketer husband, Anushka further added, '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.' Calling themselves ‘young and naive' when he got the captaincy in 2014, Anushka added that 'good intentions, positive drive & motives' are not only enough to move ahead in life, but challenges also play an important role. Yesterday, Virat resigned from the captaincy and issued a statement saying, 'It’s been 7 years of hard work, toil, and relentless perseverance every day to take the team in the right direction. I’ve done the job with absolute honesty and left nothing out there. Everything has to come to a halt at some stage and for me as Test captain of India, it’s now.'
