Australian cricketer Glenn Maxwell’s Indian wife, Vini Raman, addressed the social media trolls on Monday following Team India’s defeat in the ICC World Cup 2023 final. Raman revealed the brutal trolling she faced for supporting her husband’s team and pleaded with cricket fans not to misconstrue her cricketing inclinations. Despite hailing from the Indian state of Chennai, Raman supports her husband fervently whenever he takes the field, regardless of the opposition team. The unpleasant comments inundating her Instagram DMs after Australia’s triumph over India compelled Raman to issue a statement against the trolls tarnishing the spirit of sportsmanship. She emphasized that it is perfectly acceptable for her to be of Indian origin and still support the country where she was raised from childhood, especially one for which her husband proudly plays. This incident serves as a reminder that it’s not the first time the families of opposition players have been unfairly targeted by fans in the subcontinent.
