An apology from AB de Villiers has been publicly issued to Virat Kohli and his family, for mistakenly claiming on his YouTube channel that Kohli and Anushka Sharma were expecting a child. De Villiers expressed his regret and issued a formal apology to the fans during a live session on YouTube on February 10th. He urged everyone to respect the privacy of the individuals involved and emphasized the importance of family. De Villiers also disclosed that Kohli was in good health and spending time with his family as they were expecting their second child. Kohli had unexpectedly departed for home just three days before the Test series against England began, citing personal situations demanding his immediate presence and undivided attention.
