India’s veteran wicket-keeper Farokh Engineer recently criticized the Selection Committee and called them ‘Mickey Mouse selection committee’ and accused them of keeping busy by catering to captain Virat Kohli’s wife Anushka Sharma during the World Cup tournament earlier this year in UK.
In response to Engineers’ accusation, Anushka Sharma (renowned Bollywood actress) wrote that she always prefers to keep at bay from making any comment or statement on fabricated news. However, this time she chose to break her silence on the matter in order to avoid negative effect. Taking to Twitter Anushka Sharma posted a statement that claimed her idea of maintaining silence is not her weakness. Clarifying that she had attended only one game of the prestigious tournament held in England and she sat in the family box.
In 2018, Anushka Sharma received negative reactions for her presence in the team photograph. However, BCCI confirmed that her presence was within the guidelines and she had been invited by the High Commissioner and his wife.
