Vastavam web: Ace Indian cricketer Mithali Raj has shut down a troll who targeted her for her language preferences. Mithali, who completed 20 years in international cricket during the recent ODI series against South Africa, was criticised by a fan who believed the cricketer, who hails from a Tamil family, ignores her mother tongue and only speaks in English, Hindi and Telugu. “She doesn’t know Tamil.
She will speak in Eng, Telugu, Hindi”, tweeted the fan. The 36-year-old Indian cricketer, however, came out with a befitting reply to shut down the troll. “Tamil is my mother tongue…I speak Tamil well…I am proud to live in Tamil Nadu,” she wrote in Tamil. “But above it all I am very proud Indian! Also my dear sugu , your constant criticism on each and every post of mine, your day to day advice on how and what should I do is exactly what keeps me going,” Mithali added in English. She dedicated a Taylor Swift song to the fan asking him to ‘calm down’.
