The Mithali Raj-Ramesh Powar saga does not seem to come to an end any soon. India women’s cricket team coach has come up with a cryptic tweet after veteran India cricketer Mithali Raj expressed disappointment over how she was treated and accused Powar od being biased and she also stated that she was humiliated in West Indies during the ICC Women’s World T20. Powar’s latest tweet has sure not gone down well with Mithali’s fans. The post read, “Forgive others not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace.” Also Read - RR vs MI 2020, IPL Today Match Report: Ben Stokes Slams Hundred as Rajasthan Royals Beat Mumbai Indians by 8 Wickets to Keep Playoff Hopes Alive
Here is how his post got bashed on social space.
Earlier, Powar in his report accessed by ESPNcricinfo wrote, “I hope Mithali Raj stops blackmailing, pressurising coaches & also stops putting her interest first than team’s,” I hope she will look at the bigger picture & work towards the betterment of the Indian women’s cricket.”
That is what hurt Mithali and she responded. Her Twitter post read, “I’m deeply saddened & hurt by the aspersions cast on me. My commitment to the game & 20yrs of playing for my country.The hard work, sweat, in vain. Today, my patriotism doubted, my skill set questioned & all the mud slinging- it’s the darkest day of my life. May god give strength.”
Mithali bagged a couple of consecutive Player of the Match awards and was in hot form when she was dropped from the side for the semi-finals against England.
