Anushka Sharma

Anushka Sharma has been motivating husband Virat Kohli throughout the test series against England from the stands. Adorable, isn’t it? Well, it was until cricket fans got upset by a picture posted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). In the photograph, Anushka is seen posing with the entire team at the High Commission of India at London.

The picture wouldn’t have been a big deal otherwise, but since it was an official one, it raised questions of why she was there. Donning a beautiful mint colored traditional dress, Mrs. Kohli is seen posing beside her husband and it did not go down well with netizens. To add fuel to the fire, the vice captain, Ajinkya Rahane, is seen standing behind whereas Anushka is in the front!

Here is the picture that started the buzz:

As usual, people took to Twitter to express their disappointment and anger. Check it out:

1. Nothing goes unnoticed by the eyes of Twitterati.

2. He has a point though.

3. Nepotism here too?

4. That would be an interesting sight for sure!

5. Different players, different rules?

6. Whoa! Strong statement alert!

7. BCCI needs to take care of what they write.

8. Well, can’t say she has NOTHING to do with cricket *cough* captain *cough*

9. Worst captain? Nah, I don’t think so.

10. Okay, this did make me laugh!

To be honest, I agree that Anushka shouldn’t have been in the official picture but some reactions were kinda extreme and uncalled for. What’s your take?
