Former India cricketer Salim Durani completed 83 years on Monday. He had reason to remember his 84th birthday on two counts. First, Team India captain Virat Kohli married to Anushka Sharma on this day. Secondly, on this same day, the Indian cricket board has announced that Afghanistan would play its inaugural Test against India.
As the date of Virat Kohli’s marriage with Anushka Sharma was getting momentum, a currency note collector in Morbi (Gujarat State) wasted no time to collect a 10 Rupee currency note having number 111217. “I shall be arriving in Mumbai (during Kohli’s reception date) and try to present him this note. They can retain this note as a remembrance of their wedding day”, Parmar, speaking exclusively from Morbi, said.
