Anushka Sharma Trolled For Appearing In BCCI’s Group Photo With Virat

In the picture, Anushka is seen standing in the middle of the group, with the rest of the team members on either side of her. This has come as a surprise especially after the BCCI, in concrete terms, had instructed players to not be distracted by wives and girlfriends for at least 3 test matches during the ongoing England tour. The BCCI had also reportedly decreed that the girlfriends and spouses of the players would be allowed to stay with the players for only two weeks of the 45 day tour.
The picture has attracted harsh criticism from fans who have been slamming Anushka Sharma left, right and centre. Here are a few of the reactions-
When did BCCI declare Anushka as Vice captain ??
C’mon Virat…We know she’s your wife. She is your wife but not your luggage. Stop carrying her everywhere you go. https://t.co/8BuIKalEU9

No Hard feelings but I heard recently BCCI denied players from having their wives around when on tour in England. WTH is Anushka doing among Indian team?? Rules are meant for Team and captain should lead from front in every aspect. Just saying

Anushka is currently in London with her husband and Indian Cricket team’s Captain Virat Kohli. Numerous pictures of the duo have surfaced where they are seen roaming around the streets of London hand-in-hand. The couple were earlier slammed by many twitteratis when Virat had posted a video in which Anushka was seen yelling at a man who accidently threw a bottle outside his car in Mumbai. The man later took to social media and accused Virat and Anushka of cheap publicity and adviced them to practise what they preach.
