The captain of the Indian women’s cricket team posted a picture on Twitter. The 34-year-old sportsperson posted a throwback picture with friends Amreen Khurana and Afshan Kaura. Mithali is shown as wearing a black spaghetti top that shows off a bit of her cleavage.
It didn’t matter that Mithali is a national icon, and has done the nation proud with her team’s brilliant performance in the ICC ODI World Cup recently. What mattered to the “sanskaari” trolls on Twitter was the fact that she dared to show even a bit of cleavage.
The fans didn’t just support her, but also called out the trolls for having such a regressive mindset. “Soch badlo desh badlo” (change your thinking, change your country) was an often repeated response to the negative comments.
