Anushka beware! Australia's Sports Minister has crush on Virat Kohli

There is no doubt that Indian cricket skipper Virat Kohli is one of the most charming cricketers in the world.

While Kohli has many women swooning over him, one of them includes Australia's Sports Minister, Bridget McKenzie, who recently admitted that she has a 'cricket crush' on him, while introducing him at Australia's Prime Minister, Scott Morrison's Sydney residence.

Here's what happened.

On January 1, Morrison hosted the cricket teams of Australia and India at the Kirribilli House.

While introducing Kohli, McKenzie said, "It now gives me great pleasure to introduce...I've got a total cricket crush on this guy. Mr. Virat Kohli, known worldwide as the best batsmen in the world."

She went on admiring Kohli's passion even though she wished they (India) lose this week.

Statement

Kohli found the introduction cute, threw a cricket banter

Kohli found the introduction cute as he took the mike and said, "Erm, that was a lovely introduction."

He further said, "I think it presents to us probably our biggest challenge in world cricket purely because we aren't playing the Australian side but as we all know, when you step into the stadium and walk into bat, the whole stadium wants you out."
