“Is Anushka A Part Of Team India?” Asks Twitter After BCCI Posts Pic Of Anushka With The Team

Ever since Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma started dating, Indian cricket fans have been kind of cold to the actress. They attributed any poor performance of Kohli’s to Anushka’s presence and have harassed her on social media relentlessly for the same. So much so, that Virat has had to time and again come in defence of his lady love.

The couple is happily married now and while they are hailed as one of the best celeb couples in town, Anushka still gets her fair share of trolling from the bhakts.

Having the success they do in their chosen professions, we can imagine how difficult navigating their schedules might be. Yet, they find every opportunity they can to make sure they are always there for the other person. Like the time Anushka was cheering for Virat while getting ready for a shoot.

Also, whenever possible, Anushka becomes the perfect cricketer wife, travelling with Virat and team during their matches.

And this is one such case where she is with Virat in London for team India’s test series against England. While the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) barred other girlfriends and wives of the team from accompanying them until the end of the third test match, Anushka and Virat seem to have been exempted from this.

In fact, the official Twitter handle of the BCCI posted a pic of the team at the High Commission of India in London, where Anushka can be seen right at the centre.

Her presence in the picture is bringing in a lot of mixed reactions from the Twitterati as some believe she is being given special treatment:

1. And it begins.

2. Every day is a honeymoon if you are in love, my friend.

3. You never know, she just might be.

4. Fair point.

5. Oooh… Congrats?

6. Calm down, people.

7. And the mystery is solved. I guess…

8. Well said.

So what do you think? Is it really as such big a deal?
