BCCI trolled on Twitter for having Anushka Sharma in team India group picture
The High Commission of India in London hosted the Indian cricket team on Tuesday and the BCCI’s tweet on the occasion has now created a stir on social media.
Post-event, a group picture was put up on Twitter with the caption “#TeamIndia members at the High Commission of India in London." Apart from the team members, the image also included Bollywood star and Indian captain Virat Kohli’s wife Anushka Sharma in it, whereas none of the other players’ partners were seen in the picture.
While some pointed out that the very presence of Anushka Sharma is wrong in the picture, others noted that the vice-captain, Ajinkya Rahane was at the back of the pic. The image was uploaded on the Indian Cricket Team Instagram page and was met with the similar reactions.
Some of the comments are:
"Vice-captain is in last row and First Lady of Indian cricket is in front row. These people giving lecture online few days back"
"Anushka Sharma is also there in the squad so probably she will be included in the playing 11 too for the next match"
"Omg ...when Anushka Sharma started playing for indian team??"
