The cricketing world recently witnessed an exhilarating display of skill and determination as Australia emerged victorious in the ODI World Cup 2023 by defeating India with a margin of six wickets in a thrilling final at the Narendra Modi Stadium on Sunday.
Beyond the cricketing arena, the celebration of Australia’s triumph took an unpleasant turn for star all-rounder Glenn Maxwell‘s wife, Vini Raman. Trolls on social media targeted her for supporting Australia, questioning her loyalty due to Indian origin.
Vini Raman’s response to trolls
Vini hit back at the trolls by sharing a post on Instagram in which she expressed his displeasure over the hateful messages she received for supporting Australia. The Melbourne-born pharmacist clearly mentioned that she has every right to support the country of her birth despite her origin.
“Aaaaand 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 importantly the team your husband + father of your child plays in #nobrainer, take a chill pill and direct that outrage towards more important world issues,” posted Raman.
