CWG 2022: Twitteratis Rip Apart Mohammed Azharuddin for his Derogatory Post

India Women Cricket team fought till the end vs Australia at CWG 2022, but had to settle for the Silver medal as we look at the official Twitter reactions.  

The India Women Cricket in the final vs Australia gave their all, but fell short of the target by just 9 runs. Silver Medal isn’t a bad win by any standards, but a Gold medal would have changed the fortunes of the Women’s team. Nevertheless, the moment shall forever be cherished in Indian cricket history. 

Batting first, Australia Women were going strong until the 15 over with their score reading 122-4. But in the next 5 overs, the India women’s team came back stronger to restrict Australia to 161/8 in 20 overs. Renuka Singh and Sneh Rana took 2 wickets each. 

Chasing 162, the India Women team didn’t have a good start. But after the loss of Smriti Mandhana and Shafali Verma, Captain Harmanpreet Kaur played a fantastic knock of 65 off 43 balls. India were going comfortably at 2-118 in 14.2 overs. But what happened after that was a pure result of pressure as India fell short of the target by 9 runs.

Mohammed Azharuddin’s Post:

Team India’s former captain, Mohammed Azharuddin expressed his brutal opinion on the match. “Rubbish batting by the Indian team. No common sense. Gave away a winning game on a platter”These were his exact words as shared from his official Twitter handle. 

We all know that the India Women Cricket didn’t bat well. They gave their level best, and only lost a whisker. But when a veteran like Mohammed Azharuddin exuberates his frustration on a public platform instead of motivating the team, this isn’t encouraging.
