Team India is currently on a tour of England and reached London for the second Test against the hosts that begins on Thursday. Indian team made an official visit to the Indian High Commission and the official BCCI Twitter handle posted a photo of the Indian cricket team and support staff with the diplomats of High Commission.
They shared the photo with a caption, “#TeamIndia members at the High Commission of India in London.”

Soon, the photo went viral on social media and people started trolling it. The reason behind it is Indian skipper Virat Kohli wife Anushka Sharma’s presence in it. Twitterati turns no stone unturned and started thrashing BCCI for allowing Anushka to be in the frame despite the fact that she is not a member of the team or a diplomat.
Twitter users were also annoyed because the vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane was made to stand in the last row and he was not even visible properly, while Anushka was standing right in the middle of the group. Few people also stated that if the wife of one cricketer is allowed in such meetings, each and every cricketer’s wife should be permitted.
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

Amazing. Vice captain in last row (actually not clearly in seen in the photo itself) and middle of attraction is someone else. By the way where are other players wives then.

Is captain wife more important than vice captain? Where are other players wife's? Don't divide team for the sake of captain or Bollywood please

Is @AnushkaSharma part of Indian cricket team now? And @imVkohli are you whipped to tell your wife that she shouldn’t be accompanying you on all work tours. Don’t tell me she will be joining you on the cricket pitch soon 😱 ps: I’m a fan of both of you bt this doesn’t seem right!
