Currently, Virat Kholi is in UAE along with his wife, Anushka Sharma for the ongoing IPL season 13. Virat led RCB lost their second match to Kings XI Punjab on September 24, 2020, and the skipper couldn't perform well as he had managed only one run after facing five bowls before getting out.

Talking about Virat Kohli's bad form, as he wasn't able to deliver in the last match also, Sunil Gavaskar took a dig at his lack of practice and dragged his wife, Anushka Sharma's name in his statement. He said, "Inhone lockdown me to bas Anushka ki gendon ki practice ki hai. (He has only practised on Anushka's balls during the lockdown)." He was referring to Anushka and Virat playing cricket on their terrace, the footage of which had gone viral during the lockdown. But his double-meaning statement did not go well with 'Virushka's' fans, as such a derogatory comment wasn't expected from such a senior player, according to them. Sunil Gavaskar faced a lot of backlash on Twitter after his unacceptable comment. Check out some of the tweets below:
Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are one of the most favourite celeb couples in India. Their amazing camaraderie and never-ending support for each other are sheer couple goals. On September 21, 2020, when RCB had registered their first win in IPL against SRH, Anushka Sharma had taken to her IG handle and posting a picture of the match-winning moment of RCB against SRH, had congratulated her husband for the fantastic win. She had written, "Winning start, RCB." (Also Read: Riteish Deshmukh Enjoys An Artsy Day With Son, Riaan, Shares A Picture Of His Art)
On the same day, Anushka had shared a gorgeous picture from the pool. Clad in a black monokini, Anushka had radiated pregnancy glow as she had smiled beautifully for the camera. Along with the beautiful picture, she had written some thoughtful lines which could be read as "Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance" - Eckhart Tolle Gratitude to all those who showed me kindness and made me believe in goodness in this world , opening my heart enough to practice the same with the hope to pay it forward. Because ... " After all , we are all just walking each other home " - Ram Dass #worldgratitudeday."
The controversial statement of Suni Gavaskar was in reference to the video of Virat and Anushka playing cricket on their terrace during the lockdown, which had surfaced on the internet and had gone viral. Manav Manglani had shared that video of 'Virushka' which had seemed to be taken from a building diagonal to their house. In the video, we could see Anushka holding the bat, while Virat Kohli had turned bowler for his ladylove. The two could be seen having a fun practice session. But obviously, Virat and Anushka's fans are furious on Sunil Gavaskar's comment, and some are even demanding BCCI to remove him from the commentary.
