Indian cricket team is on an official England tour, currently playing five-match test series against England. For this tour Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma recently accompanied her husband cricketer Virat Kohli on his official tour to London but this did not go well with Indian cricket fans.
The High Commission of India in London hosted the Indian cricket team and an official photo of the occasion was tweeted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI).

Which did not well with the Indian cricket fans and followers. The photo had the entire Indian Cricket Team in the frame, but the twitteratis could not have hold of Anushka, who is seen standing in the very first row next to Indian skipper Kohli. Whereas vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane is standing in the last row. No other wife of Indian players is accompanying them accept Anushka.
Anushka Sharma’s presence on an official tour, and BCCI were slammed on social media for including Anushka Sharma in an image of Team India’s visit to the Indian High Commission in London. The image was put up with the caption Team India members at the High Commission of India in London.
Anushka Sharma is the first lady of Indian cricket team. 😂
BCCI is justified in featuring her in the "team India members " picture. 😂
