Updated on 4 July, 2017 at 3:44 pm By

Smriti Mandhana, one of the fiercest players in Indian women’s cricket team, is ensuring that her country wins in every match of Women’s World Cup 2017. Yes, the women cricket team of India is on fire in England, especially Mandhana, who played two memorable innings after coming back from an injury.

And the moment she is about to take her distinguished place in the history of cricket, people compared her to a male cricketer. Classic!

Recently, Mandhana’s applause-worthy performances have come to light in the ongoing Women’s World Cup. She played a 90-run knock against England and hit 106 off just 108 balls against the West Indies. Impressed by her game, a fan compared her to Virender Sehwag:

But the veteran cricketer answered just like he should have:

It is true that women lack representation in mainstream sports. Even when they get a chance and the platform, their achievements are often overlooked. Therefore, it must have sounded normal to most of the fans that her skills as a cricketer are compared to Viru to get validation from the fans.



But Sehwag set a classic example of how to praise women sportspersons.

A score of 196 runs in just 2 games is a pretty impressive streak. She loves playing in cold weather and is a fan of the pitch it prepares for the game. The young left-hander is annihilating opposition on the English pitch and is already gaining a massive fan base in India.
