Anushka Sharma has been on target of the social media trolls now and then. Recently it was for her being in the picture with team India on their visit to High Commission of India in London. The official Twitter account of BCCI had shared the picture in which Twitterati were not pleased seeing Anushka along with the whole team.
But as per reports of Hindustan Times, the Bollywood actress and wife of Virat Kohli, Anushka was invited along with the players and no official protocol has been broken.
“This is the norm wherever the team travels. The High Commission invites the players with their relatives and it is eventually the decision of the individuals. Even in London, the players were invited along with their partners. There has been no breach of any protocol,” a source in the BCCI told Hindustan Times.
A source at the Indian High Commission also cleared the fact that Anushka was invited, "Anushka Sharma came to the reception for the Indian cricket team at the invitation of the high commissioner and his wife. The reception was hosted by the High Commissioner and his wife and not the High Commission. The group photo was taken as the team were entering the house. Ajinkya Rahane may have stood at the back on his own He wasn’t asked to stand there. The reception was at the high commissioner’s residence and not at the high commission.”
Indian cricket team management has strict rules for WAGs and they allow the wives and girlfriends to be with the cricketer for limited times only.
