Vini Raman, wife of Australia allrounder Glenn Maxwell, has hit back at the trolls after receiving abusive messages from them following India’s loss in the final of the recently-concluded ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023.
Australia, on Sunday (November 19), stunned Team India by six wickets in the final at the Narendra Modi Stadium to clinch their sixth World Cup title. Despite entering the game as underdogs, the team from Down Under totally dominated the contest against the high-flying Indian team to clinch the World Cup for a record-extending sixth time.
Bowling first after winning the toss, Australia bowled out India for a modest total of 240 runs despite half-centuries from KL Rahul and Virat Kohli. For Australia, left-arm pacer Mitchell Starc was the pick of the bowlers, taking 3 wickets while Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood claimed two wickets apiece.
Vini Raman hits out at trolls:
In reply, Australia chased down the target in 43 overs with six wickets in hand. They were reeling at 47 for 3 at one stage before a mammoth 192-run stand between Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne put the game to bed. Head top-scored for his side, scoring 137 runs off 120 balls with the help of 15 fours and 4 sixes. On the other hand, Labuschagne remained unbeaten on 58 off 110 balls.
Hours after the win, Vini Raman took to Instagram to hit out at trolls who abused her with derogatory messages for supporting Australia. For those who do not know, Vini Raman is an Australian-Tamil woman. Urging the trolls to stop sending her hateful messages, she wrote:
“aaaand cue all the hateful vile DMs. Stay classy…can’t believe this needs to be said BUT you can be Indian and also support the country of your birth where you have been raised and more important the team your husband + father of your child plays in.
“take a chill pill and direct that outrage towards more important world issues,” added Vini Raman.
