What is Anushka Sharma doing in Team India photo? Fans not impressed

Anushka

Addressing a gathering of senior diplomats, business chiefs and politicians at a special reception hosted by the Indian High Commissioner to the UK Y K Sinha at his London residence on Tuesday evening, the batsman praised his fellow teammates for their hard work.

Soon after the photo was shared by BCCI's official Twitter handle, Anushka Sharma, Virat Kohli and BCCI faced a lot of heat on social media as people very extremely angry on the part that if Anushka Sharma was present there then why not the wives or partners of other players.

The picture didn't go down well with twitterati as they lashed out against Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma for hijacking Team India and doing as they please according to their own whims and fancies, just because they're a celebrity.

"Because unlike the others, Anushka Sharma's only identity is not "Virat Kohli's wife", she is an ambassador for Indian Cinema in the foreign countries her hubby travels to play cricket, you guys seem to forget that". Some users were also miffed by the fact that Anushka Sharma was standing in the first row while the vice-captain of the Indian cricket team was standing in the last row. We lost (the first Test), but we lost narrowly.

There are a few more photos of Virat and Anushka that are making the rounds on social media. "This is supposed to be a team event not family function", read one of the comments on BCCI's page.

Anushka has been a constant presence by her husband's side during the England tour, with paparazzi snapping pictures of the couple on streets and supermarkets. In a recent India England test he showered his love towards Wifey Anushka Sharma and dedicated his century by kissing the wedding ring pendent worn around his neck.
