India's T20 World Cup 2024 campaign got off to a shocking start in their match against Pakistan in New York. In the second over, star batsman Virat Kohli was dismissed for just four runs. Naseem Shah bowled a short and wide delivery that seemed to stop on Kohli, who reached out to slap it over point but ended up hitting it straight to Usman Khan off the toe end.

Kohli's wife, actress Anushka Sharma, was present in the stands and her reaction quickly went viral. She looked heartbroken and in disbelief as she watched her husband walk back to the pavilion.

The disappointment continued in the very next over when Indian captain Rohit Sharma was also dismissed. Shaheen Afridi took his wicket after Rohit handed a catch to Haris Rauf at deep square leg.

Following these early setbacks, India made a surprising move by promoting Axar Patel to the fourth spot in the batting order. Ritika Sajdeh, Rohit's wife, mirrored the emotional intensity that Anushka felt. Her face showed a blend of shock and dismay as she watched Rohit Sharma's dismissal, fully grasping the significance of this crucial moment on the game's outcome. Ritika has been travelling with Rohit during the World Cup and was also present during the Ireland match.

Ahead of the match, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli were seen enjoying the sights of New York with their children, Vamika and their newborn son, Akaay. The family was spotted on a coffee run in Garden City, Long Island, appearing relaxed despite the high-stakes game. A fan shared a pleasant encounter with the Kohli family at a New York restaurant, describing the interaction as warm and friendly. The fan recounted having breakfast near the couple and their children, noting that although no selfies were taken, the conversation was enjoyable.

Anushka and Virat were also seen with Vamika at a New York hotel. A video shared on social media showed the couple holding their daughter's hands as they walked inside, capturing the hearts of many with the adorable family moment.

At the time of writing, India had lost both Kohli and Rohit, standing at 50 for two in the 6th over. Pakistan had won the toss and chose to bowl first, setting the stage for this marquee clash.
