BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket) posted a picture on their social media handle after Team India visited the Indian High Commission in London on Tuesday.
The caption of the image read, “#TeamIndia members at the High Commission of India in London.”
The whole team along with members of the supporting staff are seen posing with Indian diplomats. Every member of the team was seen following a formal code as they were seen wearing blue trousers, white shirts and grey waistcoats.
However, one thing that turned the heads of the Twitterati was the presence of Virat Kohli’s wife Anushka Sharma.
Bollywood actress can be spotted standing by the side in the middle of the middle of the group photograph clad in a traditional attire.
Netizens had a hard time finding out why Anushka was a part of the formal meeting which involved Indian cricket team and why she was the only partner accompanying a player on the occasion.

But why not anyone else wife is not there
Is it just because Anushka is a public figure in India?
