'Cricket is in my blood'

Getting married was "something much more important" than a cricket series for Virat Kohli as he asserted that the three-week break won't affect his preparations for the upcoming South Africa tour.

The India captain opted out of the limited-overs series against Sri Lanka to get married to Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma in a private ceremony in Tuscan, Italy.

Asked how difficult will it be for him to return to cricket post the marriage celebrations, Kohli replied, "Not difficult at all, I was away for something (marriage) which is much more important. That is a period that will always remain special for both of
us."

"Switching back to cricket is not difficult at all because it is in my blood, like it is for every other team member and the team management as well, so getting back to professional front is not difficult at all," he added.

Following their wedding in Italy on December 11, Kohli and Anushka had hosted grand receptions in New Delhi and Mumbai, where several Bollywood and sporting celebrities were spotted.

Just prior to the break, Kohli was in red-hot form smashing 610 runs in the three-Test series against Sri Lanka.
