The news spreading around media about Virat and Anushka staying together in Hotel at England. Now BCCI confirms the news that they allow Virat’s girlfriend Anushka Sharma to stay with Virat Kohli in England for the Tests and this is surely a different one by according to the criteria of the team for last few decades.
The team management was slightly taken aback when the BCCI approved Kohli's plea of letting Anushka stay with him. But they were told there was no reason to worry as the two were planning to get married. And this isn't the first time such a thing was happening. A captain's girlfriend had travelled with the team in the past as well.
In fact, the BCCI also told them that Kohli was smart enough to handle the situation and the media wouldn't even get to know of Anushka's presence -a definite error of judgment.
On the view that Anushka's presence had nothing to do with Kohli's poor form, the official said: "Unlike football, Test cricket is played for eight hours. And when the mind is on picking and dropping friends, the result will be visible on the field itself. Off-field activities definitely play on the mind."
