After the poor show of Virat Kohli's brigade, now the action moves to the iconic Lord's Cricket Ground, London. In the first Test the Indian captain Virat Kohli was literally the lone ranger against England in Edgbaston cricket ground in Birmingham.
BCCI posted a picture of gathering at the Indian High Commission in London of the entire cricket squad that played under the leadership of captain Virat Kohli.
But the cricket fans got stuck on this one person who was standing in the very first row next to captain Kohli. She was none other than Kohli's wife and bollywood actress Anushka Sharma.
In the picture, from Indian skipper Virat Kohli to head coach Ravi Shastri, all the men are seen dressed in matching, classy clothes.
Twitterati slams BCCI and raised the question how she was the only partner/spouse present on the occasion?
Here's the few of these twitter reactions:
why is anushka sharma there? she's not a part of team india. this isn't acceptable— Kate and Kate's dirty sister (@FutbolML) August 7, 2018
Difference between family photo and team photo. This is supposed to be a team event not family function.— Bharath Aiyanna (@bharathaiyanna) August 7, 2018
Why @BCCI allows someones wife at official tour.... Please confirm Is your team mens are at work or on honeymoon— Nishant (@NishNishantkr) August 7, 2018
This is utter mockery of the game we love, kohli might be a great player but he isnt able to keep his personal and professional life separate.— banti (@what_ayee) August 8, 2018
Kal se sab log manager ke cubicle main apni wife ko baithao@imVkohli
