Leeds, July 7 (CRICKETNMORE) Indian skipper Virat Kohli is one of the few cricketers who don't shy away from showcasing their emotions, no matter what the situation of the game is.

Extremely passionate about the game, Kohli is seen expressing his joy like a child and is all pumped up after every wicket of the opposition falls. The same Kohli also shows his anger whenever a decision doesn't go in India's favour.

However on Saturday, the 30-year-old was different, he was at his animated best during India's final group stage game against Sri Lanka in the ongoing World Cup which they won convincingly by seven wickets at Headingley. 

What was of course different was the presence of his actor-wife Anushka Sharma on the stands. Dressed in a bronze-gold outfit whenever the Bollywood actress was coming into focus, the next very shot was on her husband, who was seen swaying to some unheard symphony.

Anushka too, was chirpy and seen swaying to the blazing music at the stands.

During the course of the Sri Lankan innings, Kohli was visibly happy with the performance of his bowlers who had the Sri Lankan batters under their control throughout the 50 overs. He was seen dancing, making animated gestures towards his bowlers and even whistling. 

Anushka who had been with Kohli over the past few days in England was seen cheering for her husband and team. One of her videos of Saturday's game is making rounds on social media where while cheering for the team; Anushka is asking her friend about the signal for a four after Kohli struck a boundary. Comments like "groovy Anushka too, happy just like hubby" were flashing on the social media.

Anushka has been accompanying Kohli and the team and has been seen rooting for them in the past as well. During India's tour to England last year, Kohli had blown away a flying kiss for his actress wife after he had reached the three-figures mark in one of the Test matches.
