Anushka Sharma has been accompanying husband-cricketer, Virat Kohli on his tour to UK for test series with England and the couple has been keeping their fans updated with pictures from the British capital. But a recent picture has upset many cricket fans. A few hours back, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) posted a picture of the duo, posing at the High Commission Of India in London with Team India amidst the hectic Test series, which is ongoing.
But, why has this picture left netizens angry?
Well, Anushka is seen posing with the entire team in an official picture at the HC. The actress wore a mint colour traditional dress, and stood next to the Indian Captain along with the Team, and this didn’t go well with fans of Team India. They took to social media to ask ‘What was Anushka doing in Team India's picture?’
A user wrote, “Why @BCCI allows someones wife at official tour.... Please confirm Is your team mens are at work or on honeymoon”

As someone mentioned earlier the vice captain of the Indian cricket team is standing in last row, whereas the captain's wife is in front row. This just looks unprofessional by everyone.— Bharath Aiyanna (@bharathaiyanna) August 7, 2018

We got our hands on a few pictures, where the couple is seen posing with Team India's British driver, Popeye Goodwin. In one of them, while Anushka Sharma smiles sweetly, Virat Kohli has a shocking expression on his face. Check them out:
