In a strange coincidence, if you search for Afghan cricketer Rashid Khan’s wife on Google, actress Anushka Sharma’s name appears on the search engine.
Just type Rashid Khan wife on Google and Anushka Sharma’s name and photos pop up.
Born in 1998, Rashid Khan is an Afghan cricketer and the current vice-captain of his team. He was one of the eleven cricketers to play in Afghanistan’s first ever Test match against India in June 2018.
Rashid, a year later, led the team in the one-off Test against Bangladesh. He became the youngest cricketer to captain a Test match side at the age of 20.
Anushka Sharma, who is best known for her films PK, Sultan, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Sanju, married Virat Kohli in a private ceremony in Italy three years ago. The couple announced in August that they are expecting their first child together.
Rashid was once asked to name his favourite Bollywood actresses during an Instagram chat session with his fans and followers in 2018. In response to the question, Rashid named Anushka Sharma and Preity Zinta. Thereafter, Rashid Khan trended furiously as news outlets reported Anushka Sharma as his favourite actress, as mentioned by him.

That’s the connection between Rashid Khan and Anushka Sharma. That’s it. Ever since those incessant headlines of Anushka being Rashid Khan’s favourite actress, Google has been showing Anushka Sharma as Rashid Khan’s wife.
In fact Rashid Khan isn’t married and had once said in an interview that he will marry after Afghanistan win the cricket World Cup.
