Kohli, who is currently in Australia for the national team duty, was joined by his wife in the country, ahead of their anniversary. The power couple had celebrated their first marriage anniversary on December 11, 2018.
Kohli will be heading into 2019, after finishing the previous year as the highest international run scorer. In 2018, he had achieved the feat for the third consecutive year, scoring 2,653 runs at an outstanding average of 69.81.
The 30-year-old Kohli’s new year’s celebration comes after the visiting India defeated Australia in the Boxing Day Test, to take a 2-1 lead in four-match series. Kohli, with the win in Melbourne, equalled Sourav Ganguly’s record for most overseas Test wins as an Indian captain.
In the day earlier, Kohli was also named as the skipper of Cricket Australia’s ODI team of 2018. He had played 14 ODIs in 2018, scoring over 1,200 runs at an outstanding average of 133.55.
Kohli will begin 2019, leading team India in the fourth and final Test against Australia, starting from January 3 in Sydney.
