India’s moral police on Twitter have targetted the Indian women’s cricket team captain Mithali Raj after the iconic player posted an innocuous photo of herself having good times with friends on Twitter.
Raj, who was recently instrumental in taking her team to the Women’s World Cup final, posted a photo on Twitter with caption, “#tb #PostShootSelfie #funtimes #girlstakeover.”
She was soon being trolled by users who found her choice of dress inappropriate.
are you porn star???? Have you any respect?

During the just concluded World Cup, Raj had smashed many records including hitting seven consecutive half centuries and surpassing former England captain Charlotte Edwards by becoming the all-time highest run-getter in ODIs. She also has the most number of 50s in ODIs, 49 to be precise.
