While Kohli who had his biggest fan Anushka Sharma cheering him at the stadium is now surrounded by lots of criticism. Anushka Sharma visited Australia to cheer her team and is now being targeted for diverging Kohli’s attention, Kohli scored just single run and was out at such a crucial match.

Former Indian Captain Sourav Ganguly is out to defend Anushka Sharma, who is trending at twitter after India-Aus clash, "What wrong Anushka has done? She had only gone to see a cricket match like the families of other players. It is unfair to blame him for Kohli's performance. It is the immaturity of people (criticising Anushka),” Indian media reported.

While he was also in favor to fix the weaknesses that is a part of Indian team. He feels that if they are reviewed now and are fixed then team can play good in the next World cup.

Discussing the performance of bowlers he added, "To be frank, Mohit Sharma does not look the class of Umesh Yadav or Mohammed Shami though many think he is a great potential. And Ravindra Jadeja has to either get the wickets or score runs at number seven but he has not done either.”

It’s like there’s this glass wall, we can see each other, we can talk, but that’s it. He doesn’t live with us anymore, which is also a very big setback to Neetu and me.
