We don’t know about others but we are keeping an eye on Commonwealth Games 2022 and we are proud of the fact that Indian athletes are giving their hundred per cent and winning medals. And you will be glad to hear that women athletes are also proving that kum kisi se kum nahi. Well, speaking of medals and women athletes, our Indian Women’s Cricket Team made history by bagging the silver medal in the women’s cricket finals. Women in blue are here to win, okay!

On Sunday, the Indian women’s cricket team claimed its maiden silver medal at the ongoing Commonwealth Games 2022 in Birmingham. They lost to Australia by 9 runs in the first Commonwealth women’s cricket final, they got bowled out for 152 in chase of 162 for the gold medal but still, it was an iconic win for India. After that, many fans hailed the team for their exceptional performance in their debut CWG appearance. However, the former Indian skipper Mohammed Azharuddin is not happy with the silver medal.

After his harsh tweet, many people came out to support the Indian cricket team and called out the former Indian cricketer on the social media platform for not supporting women’s cricket.
Take a look at their reactions here:
Support ke naam pe zero aur criticism ke naam pe hero, ye hai duniya ka dastur

Excuse me sir, but how many world cup finals, okay semifinals, okay ANY knockout games did your team win against the Aussies in your day? And for your information, this team has WON a silver medal at the CWG! Show them some freaking respect, if you're capable of that, of course!

There is a way to word your criticism. I am pretty sure this is not the right way. https://t.co/n1t8FbwEOP

Well, you can give constructive criticism to the team but using such harsh words is quite disrespectful.
