Anushka Sharma on Sunday shared a heartwarming post for her husband, cricketer Virat Kohli. Taking to Instagram, Anushka’s note came a day after Virat quit as the Test captain for the Indian cricket team.

In her note, Anushka recalled the moments from 2014 when Virat took over the captaincy from M.S.Dhoni. 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 and I having a chat later that day and 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.”

She also added, “In 2014 we were so young and naive. Thinking that just good intentions, positive drive & motives can take you ahead in life. They definitely do but, not without challenges. A lot of these challenges that you faced were not always on the field. But then, this is life right? It tests you in places where you least expect it to but where you need it the most. And my love, I am so proud of you for not letting anything come in the way of your good intentions. You led by example and gave winning on-field every ounce of your energy to the extent that after some losses I’ve sat next to you with tears in your eyes, while you wondered if there’s still something more you could have done.”

Earlier on Saturday, Virat had shared a post on Instagram announcing his step down as the Test captain.
