Popular sports presenter Mayanti Langer Binny is in no mood to take trolls against her lightly and hit back at netizens who made fun of her for her choice of attire during the India vs New Zealand semi-final at the ICC World Cup 2023.
Mayanti had worn a blue blazer while covering the high-profile match for host broadcaster Star Sports but was trolled for not wearing a trouser underneath with the jacket.
Sunil Gavaskar, who was covering the match along with Mayanti, was also dragged into the trolls as he was wearing a blue trouser.
Mayanti was subjected to derogatory remarks on X regarding her choise of dressing which is why she took to social media on Saturday give a befitting reply to her trollers.
"So moved by your genuine concern regarding budgets.
"Concerns that have me tagged in innumerable posts, my family and friends being inundated by images, some altered perhaps to play down the atrocity of a Blazer dress. Fear not, we can afford a full suit for the Final," Langer tweeted.
Mayanti has been the face of Star Sports for the ODI World Cup coverage in India on English channels. She is the wife of former India all-rounder Stuart Binny and daughter-in-law of 1983 World Cup-winner Roger Binny.
