Virat Kohli's Hiking Photo Goes Viral

India will have a Test match series against Australia starting on February 9, and people are looking forward to seeing Virat Kohli play. Currently, Kohli is on a trip to Swami Dayan and Giri Ashram in Rishikesh. A photo of the player trekking the woods was recently shared on social media and the post quickly went viral.

The right-handed batsman shared the photo on Twitter on Wednesday, and so far, the post has gained over 200 thousand likes. In the photo, Kohli can be seen trekking in the woods alongside another person, carrying a big backpack.

In addition to over a hundred thousand likes, the post gained plenty of positive comments from fans. One fan commented, “You are the inspiration to keep them fit and motivate others to keep fit...hope you will continue to motivate others…”

Kohli also took to Instagram and shared other photos of him and his family trekking the woods. One photo showed him and Anushka Sharma hiking with their daughter Vamika on his back.

Bollywood actress and Kohli’s wife, Anushka Sharma, also shared a series of photos of the trekking trip on Instagram. Some photos include Virat hiking with their daughter and the duo standing on rocks and playing with water near a stream. In one of the photos, Sharma captioned it: "There’s a mountain in the mountains and there is no one at the top."

The Instagram posts also went viral with plenty of positive feedback. Among the fans that reacted, an Instagram user wrote, "You guys are awesome; showing the real and beautiful India to your children is the best thing." Other users praised the couple for being nature lovers and capturing beautiful photos of 'incredible India'.

Virat and Anushka's visit to Rishikesh was days after the duo, along with their daughter Vamika sought blessings at an ashram in Vrindavan. A day before the trekking trip, several photos surfaced online in which the two were seen offering prayers at an ashram in Vrindavan.

Before their trip, Kohli had started the year with two centuries in the ODI series against Sri Lanka in January. Recently, India moved to the top spot of the ICC ODI Rankings for their record-breaking accomplishments. These records include achieving the highest margin of victory in any men’s ODI and becoming the first team to win a men’s ODI by over 300 runs.

During the ODI series, Kohli reached his 45th-ton milestone and became the first team to win a men’s ODI by over 300 runs.

For the upcoming four-match Test series against Australia, popularly known as the Border Gavaskar Trophy 2023, the first match will take place in Nagpur. Following the Test series, India will have an ODI series which will kickstart on March 17 in Mumbai.

Anushka Sharma, meanwhile, will be featured in the sports drama Chakda Xpress. The film is based on the life of Indian cricketer Jhulan Goswami and will release on Netflix. Last year in December, Anushka announced the wrap of the film's shooting on Instagram.
