Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are currently enjoying some quality time together ahead of the two-Test series between India and New Zealand starting on February 21 in Wellington. On Thursday, the Indian cricket team made the most of their break as they spent the day enjoying the natural beauty of Blue Springs. Mohammed Shami posted some pictures of the outing on his Instagram account where Anushka Sharma can be seen chilling with her husband Virat Kohli and his teammates.
“A long walk by the Blue Springs and a whole lot of fun with the teammates, that’s how Team India spent the day off ahead of the Test series,” the BCCI tweeted with the photos from the team’s outing in Putaruru.
