Mumbai: India celebrated its 72nd Independence Day on Wednesday and not only fans but also sports personalities celebrated the historic occasion.
Later on Thursday, Indian women’s cricket team ODI captain Mithali Raj took to Twitter and also wished her followers.
Wishing India, freedom from hunger, poverty, discrimination, sexism, abuse & greed. We have had 72 years to build ourselves in the manner we want to be defined. Are we close? Lives were lost so we could breathe free. Let's honour those sacrifices. Jai Hind,” she wrote.
However, a troll soon tried to pester her for her post which was a day late. But the legendary batswoman, who is not known to hold back (on and off the field) came up with a prompt reply.
The 35-year-old is currently taking part in the Women’s Challenger Trophy in Bangalore, playing for India Blue.
