Even as India and South Africa engaged in Cape Town on Day 1 of the first Test, there was a new member cheering on the World No. 1 side in the format.
Yes, Anushka Sharma has cheered for India in the past, but this time it was as the wife of skipper Virat Kohli. It was Kohli’s first outing since his marriage to the Bollywood star in December last year.

Anushka was seen sitting next to Shikhar Dhawan’s wife Ayesha. For company there was also Rohit’s Sharma’s wife Ritika.

Unfortunately lady luck was not smiling on Kohli as he fell for 5 to leave India reeling at 27/3. Earlier, the bowlers put in a commendable effort led by Bhuvneshwar Kumar (4/68) to restrict South Africa to 286.

India have never won a Test series here. Our best performance was a 1-1 draw under MS Dhoni in 2010-11.
