After Anushka Travels With Virat To New Zealand, BCCI Calls Touring With Families A Headache

It won’t be wrong to say that Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma has the best of both worlds. In her decade long career, the diva has given multiple hit films. Anushka is also at a happy place personally. In December 2018, she married her long-time boyfriend and cricketer Virat Kohli in an intimate ceremony.

Even before Virat Kohli had married Anushka Sharma, a lot of people used to troll her for her presence at the stadiums. Some would even blame her for Virat’s low score and India losing matches. Has that ended post their wedding? Apparently not!

Virat Kohli is currently holidaying with Anushka Sharma in New Zealand after successfully leading the team in 3 out of the 5 ODIs against the country.

But it wasn’t long ago that Anushka Sharma was trolled for travelling with the team when they had landed in Auckland for the ODI series with New Zealand. “BCCI adopted Anushka Sharma or what,” asked trolls.

And this kick-started the debate on players’ families travelling along with them for overseas assignment, and hence, bothering the BCCI. Not only the wives, a lot of times, cricketers take along their children as well.

“If the team is travelling with less number of members, it is easier to manage. It’s easy for BCCI staff to make off-field arrangements. Right from booking tickets to rooms, the entire management of handling the arrangement is with BCCI,” a source close to BCCI told TOI.
