England Cricketer Danielle Wyatt To Unleash Virat Kohli's Gift In India

In an interview to espncricinfo, Wyatt recalled the madness that followed her tweet and her meeting with Kohli later that year in England.

Wyatt meanwhile, will feature in the T20 tri-series in India from March 22.

Wyatt, who was the member of the England women's team that defeated Mithali Raj-led India in the ICC Women's World Cup 2017 final, will be part of the team set to tour India this month for a T20I tri-series.

The 26-year-old opening batsman was trolled on social media after she proposed marriage to Kohli on Twitter during the World T20 in England in 2014. Her tweet read thus - "Kohli, marry me!"

"Ten minutes later [after the tweet], I picked my phone up and I've got 1000s of favourites and retweets, it's all over Indian news, they're emailing my dad at home".

Kohli, who was already in a relationship with his now-wife Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, wasn't happy, it turns out.


England women's cricketer Dannielle Wyatt will have a secret weapon in her armoury when she faces India and Australia in the upcoming T20I tri-series later this month.

"When we met, he [Kohli] said to me: 'You can not do things like that on Twitter!" A lot is expected of her, given her recent performances in the shortest format of the game.

During the South Africa tour earlier this year, Bunde predicted overseas success for Kohli's Team India.

The Staffordshire women all-rounder, in her last global innings in November 2017, had blasted the third fastest hundred in women's T20I history (56-ball 100) to help England clinch a 2-1 win a three-match T20I series against Australia Down Under.
