Behind every successful man, there's a woman. It goes vice-versa in current times as well. Just ask Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma.

The two were spotted taking a stroll at Sydney's iconic Darling Harbour on Friday - days ahead of the fourth and final Test against Australia. While Kohli will lead the Indians for the first time as a permanent Test captain, the cricketer appeared calm and composed in his girlfriend's company.

Kohli has had a decent series Down Under so far. He is the second-highest run-getter in the series - his 499 placing him just below Aussie captain Steve Smith who has 581 runs. While runs have flowed freely from his willow, words too have shot out in equal measure in what have been riveting on-field verbal duels. (Johnson praises Kohli | Johnson may miss Sydney Test)

Having Anushka by his side though would augur well for the 26-year-old ahead of the Sydney Test. Fresh from the success of her movie PK, Anushka has been like a breath of fresh air in the Australian summer. She was seen in a white floral dress at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

On Friday, the Bollywood actress went casual in a black top paired with denims.

So, even as Australians plan to play boring cricket to pin down Kohli, the Indian cricketer appears relaxed enough to rise to the challenge of replacing Mahendra Singh Dhoni as Test captain.
