Netizens call Anushka Sharma ‘panauti of Indian cricket’ after WTC defeat, ask her to ‘not attend matches’

India’s hopes of adding an ICC trophy to their cabinet after 2013 were crushed mercilessly by Australia during the World Test Championship final, but guess who is at the receiving end for this loss at The Oval, Anushka Sharma!

The actress was there to cheer on her husband and also the Indian cricket team, like everyone else at the stadium but she is blamed for Virat Kohli getting out at 49, just a run shy of the half-century by Scott Boland. His wicket was taken by Steve Smith. And it was a major blow for the Indian cricket team. Her reaction to Kohli’s dismissal was caught on camera too. The actress was visibly shocked.

However, that did not stop the cricket fans from blaming her all the same. Several netizens blamed Sharma for Kohli’s dismissal and India’s loss at the WTC finals.

A user twitted, “India win % is 0 when Anushka Sharma present in the stadium in ICC tournaments.”

Another twitter user named Aaditya supported him and replied, “Anushka Sharma knows this very well that her presence is bad luck for Team India, but still she comes to stadium so that India doesn’t win any match or ICC Trophy under Rohit’s captaincy !!”

Even, a user called her the“panauti of Indian Cricket.”

Anushka sharma is the worst that happened to Indian Cricket, twitted another user.

A user calling himself to be true fan of Kohli, requested her not to attend the matches’

“ Dear @AnushkaSharma , as a true fan of Virat, I’ve noticed a pattern whnevr Anushka is present at the stadium during matches. It seems like neither Virat achieves his goals nor does Team India or any player. I kindly request you to consider not attending matches. Hoping for best!”

Anushka Sharma fans rally behind her

While Anushka was being labelled as panoti, her fans were there for her rescue. They slammed all those who have been blaming her for the WTC loss.
