Anushka Sharma was in a jubilant mood after the Indian team led by her husband Virat Kohli crushed England by 203 runs in the third Test in Nottingham on Wednesday.

 

Captain Kohli led from the front with the bat, scoring 97 and century in the two innings, and was named the man of the match.

Infact, Kohli dedicated the man of the match award to his wife Anushka.

"I want to dedicate this innings to my wife Anushka. She is one who keeps me motivated," said the India captain at the presentation ceremony.

"She is the one who keeps pushing me, She is the one who keeps me positive out there," he added.

Bollywood superstar Anushka has been the target of trolls on social media in the past whenever Kohli failed with the bat. And the Indian batting superstar even took on the trolls and slammed them on Twitter.

"She has copped a lot in the past but she deserves the credit for this one," he said after India's crushing victory at Trent Bridge.
