After Indian women team lost the semi-final against England in Women’s World T20, cricket fans criticised the decision of dropping Mithali Raj from the squad. Most batswomen from Indian team could not put up a decent performance at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Guyana, with seven players not even reaching double digits score.
The victory became a cup of cake for England team, who were chasing 113 set by India in the first innings. England chased the target comfortably in 17.3 overs with the help of 92 runs partnership between Amy Jones (53*, 47 balls) and Natalie Sciver (52 off 40 balls).
After the match, the decision of dropping senior player Mithali Raj from the team came as a big blow to Indian cricket fans. Mithali is also the leading Indian scorer in T20 international, having more runs than Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. The decision of not picking up Mithali Raj in such a crucial match of the tournament did not go well with the fans, who took to social media platform Twitter to thoroughly crictisise the decision.
Have a look at some of such Tweets.
