Inside Pictures of Virushka at Indian High Commission in London
The Indian cricket team were invited for dinner by the Indian High Commission in London on Monday, 6 August.
India, who are currently involved in a five-match Test series against the host, lost the three-match ODI series 1-2 against England prior to the Test series.
Along with the team, actor Anushka Sharma accompanied her husband and team captain, Virat Kohli, in the formal occasion.
Here are some pictures of everyone’s favourite couple, from the High Commission visit.
The couple were seen mingling with some of the highest dignitaries present at the dinner.
Captain Kohli was also seen signing autographs of eager fans, while Anushka looked on.
Despite the warm welcome, the actress had found herself in the middle of a controversy on Wednesday after the BCCI posted a picture of the Indian cricket team at the Indian High Commission in London.
Sharma was seen standing alongside her husband in the picture and was trolled for being part of what many considered to be a “Team India” photo-op.
With no other wives of the touring cricketers attending the event, there were questions asked about why only the skipper’s wife was present. Her place in the picture was also questioned, with vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane relegated to the back of the group photo.
Team sources had revealed earlier during this tour that wives and families of Indian cricketers had been asked to stay away till the end of the third Test.
