Was Anushka Sharma served coffee by selectors?

Indian actress Anushka Sharma, who is married to Indian captain Virat Kohli, has been under the scanner ever a former Indian cricketer claimed that she was served tea by Indian selectors during ICC World Cup 2019 - which was held in England and Wales earlier this year.

Reacting to all those reports, Anushka posted a lengthy statement on Twitter - where she said she came to watch a match during the mega event, which she witnessed from the family box and not selectors box.

Anushka also recalled incidents when she was blamed for Kohli’ and Indian cricket team's poor performances on the field.

Anushka's reaction comes after former Indian cricketer Farokh Engineer claimed that she was served coffee by Indian selectors.

Slamming Indian selectors, Engineer questioned how the current batch of selectors were fit enought to be in the position.

Engineer also recalled an incident where he did not recognise one of the selectors who was wearing a blazer.

"Virat Kohli has a major impact (in the process) which is very good. But how are the selectors qualified? Between them, have they played about 10-12 Test matches. I didn’t even know one of the selectors during the World Cup and I asked him ‘who the hell he was’, because he was wearing the India blazer and he said he was one of the selectors. All they were doing was getting Anushka Sharma (Kohli’s wife) cups of tea. I feel people with the stature of Dilip Vengsarkar should be in the selection committee," Engineer said.

In her statement, Anushka recalled all those moments where he chose to be quiet despite being unnecessarily dragged into controversies surrounding Indian team's poor performance on the field.
