England women’s cricket star Danielle Wyatt’s admiration for Team India skipper Virat Kohli is well known.
The English all-rounder had set the social media abuzz when she proposed Kohli after his blistering half-century against South Africa in the 2014 World T20 semi-final.
Kholi marry me!!!

Well, Kohli’s reply is still not known to the public, but the Indian superstar had made sure to meet Wyatt when he visited England with the Indian team for the full-fledged series in 2014. During that meet, Kohli had also presented Wyatt one of his bats.
Ever since then, Wyatt comes up with a Kohli-related tweet now and then. From posting pictures of the gifted bat on social media to praising the Indian superstar, Wyatt seems to be in awe of Kohli.

Well, the England star’s admiration for the Indian skipper is looking set to go to another level. Wyatt is all set to cheer Virat Kohli in the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League if everything goes well.
She will be touring India later this month for limited-overs series. England will play in Twenty20 tri-series with India and Australia starting in Mumbai on March 22 before three ODIs.
On March 7 Wyatt took to Twitter to express her excitement after the squad was announced.
“Can’t wait to fly out to India next week & get back out there with the girls! One of my favourite places to play,” she wrote.
