Dannielle Wyatt to use Virat Kohli's bat during England tour of India

Danielle Wyatt and Virat Kohli

Editorial team of CricketCountry.

A fan responded to her tweet, sharing a picture of Kohli and Wyatt and questioned her loyalty toward the Indian skipper, whom she had even comically proposed to on Twitter in 2014. She talks about how the tweet gained her fame and followers.

"I'm using Virat Kohli's bat now", Wyatt told ESPNcricinfo in an interview.

"Ten minutes later", she recalls, "I picked my phone up and I've got 1000s of favourites and retweets, it's all over Indian news, they're emailing my dad at home".

"When we met, he said to me: 'You can't do things like that on Twitter!"

No new defence agreement underway with US: Turnbull
This statement echoed a warning from the Reserve Bank yesterday that trade barriers could cause a "very big shock" for the world economy.

Wyatt, who is a big admirer of the Indian run-machine, had a year ago smashed her maiden hundred in the shortest format in a T20 match against Australia but she broke that bat.

Wyatt had also congratulated Kohli when the latter tied the knot with Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma in December 2017. Wyatt wants to make a mark in the T20I Tri-Series and for that she has a special bat which she will be using for the first time. Now, she is here with the England women's cricket team as they play a T20I Tri-Series including India and Australia. A lot is expected of her, given her recent performances in the shortest format of the game.

Wyatt has played 53 ODIs and 73 T20Is for England and was recently in news for her breathtaking 56-ball century in Twenty20 global that fired England to a 2-1 win over Australia in a three-match series.

For the uninitiated, the batswoman in 2014, on having watched Kohli score 72 in the WT20 against South Africa, took to Twitter with a proposal for the captain - "Kohli, marry me!" it read.

The 29-year-old will be back in action in April as he will be leading Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the 11th edition of Indian Premier League (IPL). England women will face India women on March 25.
