Everyone was in stitches after reading the amusing yet moving remark that an Indian fan who was watching the game from the stands at the VCA Stadium during the ongoing maiden Test match between India and Australia in the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy wrote on a placard.
The crucial Test series is currently being played between India and Australia, and Day 2 has been nothing short of a topsy-turvy roller-coaster ride for both teams with the bat and the ball.
The banner, which the spectator was seen waving from the stands, stated, “I love Virat Kohli more than my wife.” If the message wasn’t epic and humorous enough, what made the event more interesting was that the husband of the particular male fan was standing right alongside him and roaring out loud for team India from the stands, according to a tweet from writer Adam Collins.
Everyone was amused by the occurrence, which was caught on camera, and even renowned Australian cricket journalist Collins couldn’t resist posting a photo of the pair in the stands holding a sign with the message on the microblogging website Twitter.
And yes, that’s his wife next to him. #INDvAUS #BGT2023 pic.twitter.com/FHv8GlA1uS

For those who are unaware, this isn’t the first time some supporters have been seen on camera holding banners with eye-catching statements to show their fervent support for the Indian cricket team. Earlier in January 2023, a fan went viral after wearing a placard honouring the master of Indian batting and sharing how happy he was that Virat Kohli had scored his 74th century on the day of his (the fan’s) wedding.
