While the couple made headlines for their social media PDA, a recent picture tweeted by Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has backfired for real.

Anushka's presence didn't go down too well with the Indian cricket fans, who found it hard to digest that she was standing in the centre of the frame with rest of the team India, while the vice-captain of the team, Ajinkya Rahane can be seen at the back.

Fans have questioned the BCCI weather Anushka is part of "Team India" and why only Kohli and not the other players posed with their partners during the high-profile meeting. They subtitled the image of "members of #TeamIndia to the High Commission of India in London". No other wife of Indian players is accompanying them accept Anushka.

Where the previous few times I personally have disagreed with the trolling of Anushka Sharma pertaining to her relationship with Kohli and her apparent bad luck on the team, in this case, I can not help but agree with it all. Meanwhile, Vice captain of the team stood somewhere in the last row.

The actor, as well as BCCI, was heavily trolled on twitter over the image and some of them are not exactly forgiving.

Amid the busy schedule, the members of the team and the support staff found time to visit the High Commission.

The photo has come amidst an instruction issued by the BCCI to its players to not be distracted by their wives and girlfriends during the ongoing England tour.

But the cricket fans got stuck on this one person who was standing in the very first row next to captain Kohli.
