In this picture, we can see Anushka Sharma standing right beside her husband, Virat Kohli. This comes after BCCI reportedly directed the team to not to be directed by their wife or girlfriends and they would be allowed to stay with them only for two weeks during their tours for 45 days.
The tweet has attracted harsh criticism from fans. “Vice-captain is in the last row and First Lady of Indian cricket is in the front row. These people giving lecture online a few days back,” one person wrote. “So I guess all other members are bachelors,” another person wrote, alluding to the absence of any other player’s partner.

Anushka has always been with her husband during his matches and many a time she has been clicked while cheering for her husband from the stands.
