London: A recent photo of the Indian cricket team visiting the Indian High Commission in London by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) received a huge backlash.

After the national cricket body that it would not allow WAGs (wives and girlfriends) of players, the presence of Virat Kohli’s wife Anushka Sharma in the picture raised a lot of eyebrows. Twitterati soon hit back at BCCI for its double standards over the treatment of other players’ WAGS.

Rohit Sharma, who is currently not a part of the Test squad and is enjoying a holiday break liked a tweet where a user took a dig at the BCCI.  “@ImRo45 void is filled up by @AnushkaSharma I believe WAG’s are not allowed till 3rd test. Different rules for different players!" the user wrote in reply to BCCI’s picture.

As per BCCI’s latest rule, WAGs will only be allowed to be with the cricketers for 14 days during the entire UK tour. While it’s up to every individual on how they decide to choose it, they will only be allowed after the 3rd Test which ends on August 22 at Nottingham.
