Former South African batter AB de Villiers apologized for sharing a false information regarding Virat Kohli's wife and Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma being pregnant with the second child.

Just a week ago, AB de Villiers shared the news on his YouTube channel that Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are expecting their second child after Vamika, thus took a break from cricket to be with his family. Now, Kohli's former RCB teammate took a big U-Turn on his statement regarding them.

Speaking to Dainik Bhaskar, de Villiers admitted that he made a mistake by sharing the false news of Kohli's wife pregnancy with second child. The 39-year-old added that he doesn't know anything about former India captain's personal life and wished him to come back stronger after a break.

"Family comes first and then Cricket. I had made a big mistake on my YouTube channel. I shared a false information. That Information was wrong and not true at all." AB de Villiers said.

"No one knows what’s happening there, all I can do is wish him well. Whatever the reason for his break, I hope he can comeback stronger, better and fresh from this.” he added.

Virat Kohli withdrew from India squad for Hyderabad and Vizag Tests against England due to personal reason. However, the nature of person reason was neither Indian batter nor BCCI as the board requested to avoid speculating the reason behind withdrawal from the squad.

Recently, Virat Kohli's brother Vikas rubbished the rumours of their mother, Saroj Kohli's poor health condition, speculating it as a reason behind returning home. He stated that their mother is absolutely fine and urged everyone to check the news before spreading it.

Virat Kohli doubtful for 3 Tests against England

After ruling out of two Tests before the commencement of the series, Virat Kohli is likely to extend his break from cricket and will remain unavailable for remainder of the five-match Test series against England.

Royal Challengers Bangalore and Madhya Pradesh batter Rajat Patidar was added to Test squad as a replacement for Virat Kohli. Patidar made his debut in whites in the Vizag Test and scored 32 and 9 in two innings.

Virat Kohli joined India camp at Hyderabad before travelling to Ayodhya to attend Ram Mandir Pran Pratishtha. Just two days before the Hyderabad Test, BCCI released the official statement regarding Kohli's withdrawal from two Tests.

The former India captain has been taking breaks from cricket over the last few months. Kohli withdrew from the first T20I of the three-match series against Afghanistan as travelled back due to personal reason.

If he is ruled out of the remaining matches of the Test series against England, Kohli will likely to make his return to competitive cricket through IPL 2024.
