BREAKING SPORTS NEWS: Indian cricket captain Virat Kholi is on his way back to Australia and will play in the Boxing Day Melbourne Test with the full blessing and support of his heavily pregnant wife.
Mrs Kholi’s simple message to her husband after he rushed her to an upmarket Mumbai hospital late last night with what turned out to be false labour pains was simple: “I know you want to go so just go!”
“This bub could take forever and all of India need you to turn this series around.”
Kholi kissed his wife tenderly before choking back tears and saying: “Are you sure, hon? This is a special moment I really do not want to miss” before hurrying from the hospital (pictured at top) and catching a cab to the airport.
