Just when cricketer Virat Kohli and actor Anushka Sharma thought that they dodged the paparazzi after ‘coming clean’ about their relationship, former Australian cricketer and presenter Michael Slater has sparked the big debate again.

During the final day of the third test in Melbourne, the Australian commentator addressed the 26-year-old actor, who is in Melbourne supporting her beau, as Virat’s wife. Slater quickly tried to cover up, but ended up calling her Virat’s fiancée. Earlier in the test, Virat, after scoring a 100 in the first innings, blew kisses with his bat – a repeat of what he did few months ago – to Anushka, who was in the stands supporting him. The social media was abuzz with tweets and comments on Virat’s mushy gesture.

Meanwhile, the 26-year-old Delhi lad has also been involved in fierce verbal exchanges throughout the match with Australian pacer Mitchell Johnson. While their on-field battles have been a treat for fans of the competitive game, off-the field on social media, they have worked as an easy source for memes. One such meme presented the two in a heated verbal battle, with a picture of Anushka on Mitchell’s cheek. The meme is a reference from Anushka’s latest release, PK, where Aamir sports a picture of a God on his cheek, to avoid being beaten up by people.
