The moment Kohli completed his half century, the Bollywood actress' who came well prepared for Aussie summer with her little black dress,  joined the Melbourne Cricket Ground in appreciating the knock.

According to reports on social media, Australian presenter Michael Slater during his commentary on the fifth and final day of the third Test called Anushka Sharma as Kohli's wife. After realising his faux paus, Slater then hurriedly described the actress as Virat's 'fiancee.'
