Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli have been giving us #CoupleGoals for days. The duo has been posing for cutesy pictures with each other around London and we are not complaining. We love how they are always there for each other no matter what. While on a usual day, the internet collectively goes ‘aww’ for most of their pictures together, today has been quite different. Both Anushka and Virat have been spending their free time with each other whenever possible roaming the streets of London. Currently, there is a hectic test series between India and England going on. But they were recently invited for a meet and greet session at the Indian High Commission in London and posed for a picture while there.

But, Twitter wasn’t having it. Cricket lovers immediately pounced on why Anushka Sharma was there in a picture that was captioned #TeamIndia. Many questioned why she was taking the centre stage while the vice-captain was pushed to the back row. They felt that Anushka was undeserving to be in a picture that represented the Indian team.
Vice captain is in last row and First Lady of Indian cricket is in front row. These people giving lecture online few days back. @AnushkaSharma

Is captain wife more important than vice captain? Where are other players wife's? Don't divide team for the sake of captain or Bollywood please

No Hard feelings but I heard recently BCCI denied players from having their wives around when on tour in England. WTH is Anushka doing among Indian team?? Rules are meant for Team and captain should lead from front in every aspect. Just saying

Amazing. Vice captain in last row (actually not clearly in seen in the photo itself) and middle of attraction is someone else. By the way where are other players wives then.

Wives are invited with the players. for high commission dinner in South Africa, wives of all the players accompanied them.

is he playing like vice – captain with responsibility? No contribution to team. ANUSHKA contributes more than him as wife of captain batsman virat kohli by supporting and motivating him

Sounds like one sticky situation. Looks like this is going be grounds of heated debate for a while now.
