As stories of Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli and Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma’s destination wedding plans in Italy surface, the management of iconic Australian stadium Adelaide Oval has offered the stadium for their wedding

“We would be thrilled to host Virat and Anushka’s wedding at Adelaide Oval. How fantastic would it be for Virat to create more happy memories here, considering his outstanding playing history at the Oval,” Andrew Daniels, the CEO of the sports venue, said, the Hindustan Times reported.

Daniels is referring to the three Test centuries, including his debut in 2012, and his highest T20 score of 90 (not out) that Kohli achieved at the stadium. Kohli has scored 624 runs at an average of 89 in eight innings at the Adelaide Oval.

The stadium has been in the news recently for a record number of over 200,000 spectators for the 2nd test of the ongoing Ashes series, a match that Australia won by 120 runs against England. The match was played after a massive renovation of the 146-year-old stadium at a cost of A$535 million.

The stadium, seen as one of Australia’s most impressive destinations, allows private functions for the price beginning at A$159 (Rs 8,000) per guest. The wedding hall at the stadium offers views of St Peter’s Cathedral and Adelaide city.

Kohli and Sharma have not commented on their wedding plans.

Daniels feels the wedding would be “unforgettable” in the stadium. He said: “With 26 purpose-built function spaces to choose from, combined with a showcase of South Australia’s finest food and wine it would be an unforgettable day for the future Mr and Mrs Kohli and their guests.”

Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma was seen leaving India with her family on Dec. 7, sparking rumors of a wedding at Italy.
