Anushka Sharma was under the scrutiny of the social media trolls when she was included in a picture with the Indian Cricket Team at the Indian High Commission in London. But now, we have an answer for her inclusion. A source close to the Board of Cricket Control of India (BCCI) stated, “This is the norm wherever the team travels. The High Commission invites the players with their relatives and it is eventually the decision of the individuals. Even in London the players were invited along with their partners. There has been no breach of any protocol.”
The source continued, “Anushka Sharma came to the reception for the Indian cricket team at the invitation of the high commissioner and his wife. The reception was hosted by the high Commissioner and his wife and not the High Commission. The group photo was taken as the team were entering the house. Ajinkya Rahane may have stood at the back on his own. He wasn’t asked to stand there. The reception was at the high commissioner’s residence and not at the high commission.”
