There is no method to trolling on social media. Trolls may pick on you for the silliest of reasons. Cricketer Mithali Raj was attacked on Twitter for wishing Happy Independence Day a bit late! Yes, you read that right.

Mithali’s response

Mithali, giving a befitting reply, clarified the reason for wishing one day after Independence Day. Being excessively busy in the Challengers trophy, where the team has to sacrifice mobile phones, it was impossible for Mithali to be active on social media. Hence, she delivered her wishes a bit later.

After the wish by Mithali, the man picked on her with his tweet, asking her to be careful about it as she is a celebrity.

To this, Mithali gave an apt response.

Well said, Mithali! Captaining India Blue in the Women’s T20 Challengers Trophy, she is the highest run-scorer in women’s international cricket and the only female cricketer to surpass the 6,000 run mark in WODIs. Her Twitter bio gives a glimpse of how she is as a person. It says, ‘’I dream. I work hard. I grind, until I own it.’’

Achievements of Mithali

Mithali who was born on December 3, 1982, holds the record for most half-centuries in ODIs. Also, in 2018 Women’s Twenty20 Asia Cup, She made India proud by becoming the first Indian player to score 2000 runs in T20Is. Mithali has been winning appreciation from all over the country from everyone. On her success with 6000 runs, wrestler Geeta Phogat, another Indian sportswoman  had also congratulated her.

Mithali, who is also a trained classical dancer, is currently focusing on Challengers Trophy. Racing to score 101, India Red managed 79 for 3 in 16.3 overs. Due to the unstoppable rain, India Red was declared the winner. For India Blue, Mithali Raj top-scored with 51.
