In a recent development, the lawn tennis maestro, Sania Mirza took over to her Twitter handle to praise the stalwart woman cricketer, Mithali Raj.
She did so because Mithali gave a befitting reply to one reporter who asked about her favourite male cricketer. Praising her, Sania wrote:
“@M_Raj03 slay girl … well done!!”

Mithali Raj was asked about her favourite male cricketer at the opening dinner and media round table event for the Women’s Cricket World Cup. To that, Mithali replied:
“Do you ask the same question to a male cricketer? Do you ask them who their favourite female cricketer is? I have always been asked who’s your favourite cricketer but you should ask them who their favourite female cricketer is?”
Further talking about it, she highlighted the fact that the country is obsessed with men playing the sport, which lead to lack of attention to the women who equally do so. Here’s to what she added with lament:
“They love to watch the men play but turn off the television screens when the women are playing.”
Upon being applauded by Sania Mirza, Mitha was delighted to the core. Responding to Sania’s sweet gesture, she replied to her tweet.
