Twitterverse Has It's Say
Since families of other cricketers have also been spotted in London, Twitter users asked why none of the other wives or partners were present at the event.
There were also tweets asking people not to interfere in the actress' private life by creating such a stir over the photo.
Some people looked at the photo with a pinch of humour and poked fun at the players who have under-performed on the tour.
Indian team management had earlier informed the players that no wives and girlfriends will be allowed in the camp till the end of the third Test, according to a report in Mumbai Mirror. However, Anushka Sharma was also spotted in the stands during the series opener at Birmingham.
