The captain will fly back to his home to be with his pregnant wife and actress, Anushka Sharma. Soon, in a press conference, Virat Kohli revealed the importance behind paternity leaves and said, "The decision was made before the selection meeting that I will be flying back before the first Test. It was purely based on the fact that there was a quarantine period in both ways. I wanted to be back in time to be with my wife for the birth of our first child." Also, Virat Kohli described the emotions he and his wife, Anushka Sharma are feeling at the moment and added, "It is very, very special and a beautiful moment in our lives and that was the reason for my decision that was communicated to the selectors."

The Indian cricketer has won everyone's hearts with his decision, and there's no doubt in saying that having a life partner like him is a dream for every girl on this planet. Time and again, Virat Kohli has projected his sheer affection, love, and admiration for his wifey in many interviews and media conferences. A similar thing had happened during his interview with the retired cricketer, Sir Vivian Richards, when he had asked a personal question to Virat Kohli. He had questioned, "You are playing better than ever now, man. Some guys relish knowing that the person they enjoy being with for the rest of their lives, in the environment and doing what you are doing now, man. Some guys wouldn't have done as much. But it looks like you really appreciate both sides of the coin."

On Richard's question, Virat's answer had won our hearts as he had showered his better-half, Anushka with praises and had revealed the secret behind their successful marriage. Virat had replied, "Actually, it's been the biggest blessing in my life apart from being blessed to play this sport. To find the right person. Because she is a professional herself, she totally understands my space. She guides me in the right direction. The thing that I have learned from us being together is that if you are willing to do things which are right in your life, off the field, and doing the difficult things and standing by them, I think that creates your personality to go on the field and do the same thing."
