Everyone’s aware of the hoopla that occurred the last time Anushka Sharma attended one of Virat Kohli‘s matches – she was, unfortunately, “accused” for being a distraction and was therefore blamed by some for India’s loss at the 2015 World Cup. However, the couple clearly – and rightfully – didn’t give this too much attention, as Anushka attended the RCB vs Sunrisers match on Friday night. The match was halted due to rain, and in this time, Virat entered the VIP box. He and Anushka were seen chatting and hanging out with some other cricketers – like Yuvraj Singh, whose expression in this picture is pretty funny:

However, a senior officer Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) has gone on record to say that it is “unbecoming” of a captain to act like this while the match is still technically on. Even though rain interrupted the play, cricketers aren’t supposed to leave their designated area and meet anyone else while the game is still on (which it was). The Chariman of the IPL has said that, as of now, they haven’t received any report from the ACSU, but if it turns out that Virat did indeed breach protocol, he will be given a warning.

Ouch! Here’s hoping this doesn’t turn into a huge issue.
