New Delhi: Virat Kohli found backing and praise from former India legend Kapil Dev for standing up for ex-girlfriend Anushka Sharma recently.

Kohli took to Twitter and slammed people for bothering Anushka non-stop.

Kohli had an amazing outing in the ICC World T20 and despite scoring a brilliant unbeaten 89 against West Indies in the semis, he could not prevent his side from losing the game.

According to a report in Crictracker, Kapil had words of admiration for the Indian Test captain for standing up for the actress and lashing out against people who were abusing Anushka. 

Kapil had kind words for Virat, he said, Thank you Virat! I didn’t know you could speak like that. You have become a much bigger person by standing for Anushka.’ Not only as a player, but also as a human being, I adore the man!”

He also praised Virat for his outstanding batting in the World T20.
