Indian Captain Mithali Raj has made headlines in the recent past for all the right reasons, for leading the Indian women’s cricket team to the ICC Women’s World Cup final, as well as for other reasons.
One of the most celebrated woman cricketers of India, Mithali uploaded a throwback picture on Twitter and captioned it as “#tb #PostShootSelfie #funtimes #girlstakeover”.
Some trolled her over what she wore in the picture, but her fans soon sent them packing with a barrage of counters and tweets in the cricketer’s favour.
One of the fans wrote as a reply to the image, “O Hello Developing Country does not mean that girls should forget their limits and secondly, keep your opinion with you do u understand…”Afshan, who was one of Mithali’s friends in the photo, immediately shot back at the troll as she wrote, “Ohhh Really! exactly Keep your opinion with you, Now do you understand? And moreover, You are nobody to tell us what to wear what to not!”While few trolls tried to slam the right-handed batswoman, hundreds of fans extended support to her and slammed the trolls and told them to change their mentality.
The 38-year-old cricketer during became the first woman cricketer to score seven consecutive half-centuries in One-day Internationals (ODIs) during the World Cup. She also surpassed former England captain Charlotte Edwards and became the all-time highest run-getter in ODIs and registered the record of most number of fifties in ODIs, 49.
