Vini Raman, the wife of Australian cricketer Glenn Maxwell, took to Instagram to address hateful direct messages (DMs) she received.
In the wake of Australia’s victory over India in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023, Vini Raman, the wife of Australian cricketer Glenn Maxwell, took to Instagram to address hateful direct messages (DMs) she received.
The post comes amidst reports of cyberbullying and abuse targeting Australian cricketers following their triumph over India at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium.
In her Instagram post, Vini Raman responded with poise, emphasizing the possibility of being both Indian and supportive of one’s country of birth. She particularly highlighted the importance of supporting the team her husband plays for, calling for a more measured perspective and redirection of outrage towards more pressing global issues.
The incident follows Australia’s sixth World Cup triumph, which saw Glenn Maxwell contributing significantly, especially with a crucial wicket in the final against India. Maxwell’s exceptional form throughout the tournament, notably his outstanding 201 not out against Afghanistan, played a pivotal role in guiding Australia to victory.
Batting first after winning the toss, India posted a total of 240 runs in 50 overs. Mitchell Starc (3/55) emerged as the standout bowler for Australia, with Skipper Pat Cummins (2/34), Josh Hazlewood (2/60), Adam Zampa, and Glenn Maxwell also making crucial contributions.
During the chase, India managed to reduce Australia to 47/3. However, Travis Head’s sensational 137 runs in 120 balls, supported by Marnus Labuschagne’s 58 in 110 balls, led Australia to a convincing six-wicket victory.
