Prominent news outlets recently suggested that the iconic duo, Virat and Anushka, had intentions to erect a cricket pitch on their luxury Alibaug residence grounds. But Kohli, dismissing such claims, took to social media to offer a significant clarification. Kohli, on his Instagram account on Tuesday, dispelled the rumors and labeled the information as misleading.
“The publications I’ve trusted since youth are now resorting to distributing false narratives,”
expressed Kohli in an Instagram Stories post.
This reaction from Kohli surfaced after said media outlets posited that the ex-Indian skipper harbored desires to integrate a cricket pitch within the confines of his opulent estate. As one of the most tracked sports personalities on Instagram, Kohli boasts a mammoth 255 million-strong follower base on the image and video-centric platform. As per prior reports, Kohli had acquired his additional Alibaug property the previous year. The esteemed Indian cricketer had footed an INR 36 lakh stamp duty for his 2,000 sq ft villa transaction in Alibaug, setting him back by INR 6 crore.
