India vs England: Anushka Sharma Didn't Break Protocol By Posing With Team India. Here's Why

The source said, "This is the norm wherever the team travels. The High Commission invites the players with their relatives and it is eventually the decision of the individuals. Even in London, the players were invited along with their partners. There has been no breach of any protocol."

"Anushka Sharma came to the reception for the Indian cricket team at the invitation of the high commissioner and his wife. The reception was hosted by the High Commissioner and his wife and not the High Commission. The group photo was taken as the team were entering the house. Ajinkya Rahane may have stood at the back on his own He wasn't asked to stand there. The reception was at the high commissioner's residence and not at the high commission," the source added.

The fact was also confirmed by a source at the Indian High Commission who told Hindustan Times, "Anushka Sharma came to the reception for the Indian cricket team at the invitation of the high commissioner and his wife. The reception was hosted by the High Commissioner and his wife and not the High Commission. The group photo was taken as the team were entering the house. Ajinkya Rahane may have stood at the back on his own He wasn't asked to stand there. The reception was at the high commissioner's residence and not at the high commission."

As per a new rule passed by the BCCI, wives and girlfriends of Indian cricketers can stay with their partners for any 14 days after the first 14 days of a tour.

On the work front, Kohli's Team India lost the first Test of the five-match series against England at Edgbaston by 31 runs as the skipper's valiant effort went in vain.

The visitors, who are trailing 0-1, will look to make things even when they take on the hosts in the second Test that was supposed to begin at the Lord's Cricket Ground on Thursday but the entire day's play was washed out due to rain.
