First Lady of Indian cricket: Twitter users slam BCCI for posting team photo with Anushka Sharma

After BCCI posted a photograph of Team India and Anushka Sharma through its official Twitter handle, the users pointed out that the Bollywood actress was getting ‘special treatment’ for being captain Virat Kohli's wife.



On Tuesday, BCCI posted a group photo of the Indian cricket team along with captain Virat Kohli's wife Anushka Sharma on Twitter. However, the users on social media were itched by the fact that BCCI had posted an official photo with a cricketer’s wife in the photo.

While the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) bars players' wives and girlfriends from accompanying them till the end of the Third Test against England, Anushka Sharma’s presence in the photograph raises the question of ‘special treatment’!

India lost the first Test at Edgbaston against the English by 31 runs. While the sole star performer of the match was captain Kohli with his 200 runs in the two innings, Team India will have to hit back against England with a solid performance as a team.

The second Test at Lord's Cricket Ground will start on Thursday.
