Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma celebrated their first marriage anniversary on Tuesday but a couple did something special for Indian pacers.
In order to ensure that his pace bowlers stay fresh, Kohli is doing his best to ensure that they get some premium treatment ahead of the second Test.
Former England captain Michael Vaughan revealed an incident that happened on Tuesday morning where skipper requested the airline staff to allow his pacers to take his and wife Anushka Sharma’s business class seats.

Usually, BCCI reserves the best seats for the Indian team – home or abroad but there is a limited number of seats and many players tend to miss out on the premium seats. But Kohli happily sacrificed his and Anushka’s seats for Indian pace bowlers.
This is not the first time that an Indian captain has gone out of his way to help the pacers. Ahead of 2015 ICC World Cup semi-final against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground, MS Dhoni gave up his business class seats so that his seamers could get more leg room.
