Virat also had a reason to celebrate as India registered a 113-run win over South Africa in the first Test in Centurion on Thursday.

Virat and Anushka welcomed their daughter Vamika on January 11 last year. Anushka and Vamika were in the stadium on Day 4 and Day 5 and Virat even waved to the two of them from the field. A fan video showed the cricketer waving to them but the camera did not show Vamika in the frame. 

Earlier, Vamika was captured by the paparazzi as the team left for the South Africa. A disappointed Virat had requested the photographers not to click his daughter. Later, Anushka had shared a note of thanks for the media for not sharing pictures of the little one.

She said in a statement, “We are deeply thankful to the Indian paparazzi and most of the media fraternity for not publishing pictures/videos of Vamika. As parents, our request to the few who carried the images/video will be to support us going forward. We seek privacy for our child and would like to do our best to give her a chance to live her life freely away from media and social media. As she is older, we cannot restrict her movement and hence your support is needed so kindly practice (retrain) in the matter. A special thank you to fan clubs and people of the internet for going out of your way to not post images. It was kind and highly mature of you.”
