(Tweeting on Starc) It was fun because Anushka and I were probably more involved with this, Sania said in a video interaction with Indian cricketers. Jemimah Rodrigues and Smriti Mandhana on his Double Trouble YouTube chat show.

"I think whenever our husbands perform, it's because of them and when they don't it's because of us. I don't know how that works," she said.

Sania said that the phenomenon points to a deeper cultural issue. "We are saying it as a joke but I think there is a much deeper issue. The deeper issue is that a woman can always be a distraction and not a strength.

It is a cultural problem that we have to deal with. Oh, 'if your girlfriend is there or your wife is there, he must be distracted because he's going to dinner.' That doesn't even make sense.

"When he (Starc) went back to his wife to watch the World Cup final and everybody was hailing him, I was trying to just picture Shoaib doing that for me and I was like, hell would have broken loose if that would have happened.

"They would have said that he is such a joru ka ghulam, he is going and watching a women's cricket match. I just felt it. Sometimes humour also brings out the truth in many things.

"Anushka and I had a long conversation about it. We both were like, my goodness this is so true."
