Its confirmed! Bollywood star Anushka Sharma is all set to become the first lady of Indian cricket before 2018. If multiple sources are to be believed, Anushka will tie the knot with the Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli in December. The dates are yet to be finalised.

But what we do know is, the Indian captain has already communicated his unavailability for selection for a Test match and the limited-overs series against Sri Lanka in December citing 'personal reasons'. 

Kohli and Anushka have been dating for at least a couple of years now and the award-winning actor had even accompanied the cricketer during India's tour of England in 2013, which created plenty of buzz. 

Though there were talks of a break-up between the two in 2015, Kohli came out in open support of Anushka when fans lashed out at her for his poor run of form.

The couple recently grabbed eyeballs with an advertisement for Manyavar ethnic clothing, in which the two are seen exchanging wedding vows.

In the ad, the much-loved couple, called Viruskha by fans, are seen attending a wedding, where the wedding couple are reciting vows inaudible to them. They then begin to guess what vows they must be taking.

The two keep knocking off quirky, modern day vows with each other.

Virat says the groom will cook for every 15 days of the month, and Anuskha says she will never complain about the taste.

They also promise to never watch any show's season finale alone.

The ad gets more real especially during the last vow when Virat looks at her seriously and tells her that he will always take care of her, to which Anushka smiles and says the same back.

Virat also commits to staying fit forever only for her to which Anushka replies, “Nahi bhi karoge toh chalega (even if you won’t, it will not bother me).”

Virat Kohli is a brand ambassador for the clothing brand and Anuskha has joined him only recently.
