But an user with a Twitter handle which goes by the name NoOne asked Raj to delete the post.
Another user with an user name of naveenashok2 wrote, “Hey mithali raj u not a actrees.u r a cricketer .y so glamorous”
But there were many who have defended the cricketer. Here are some of the tweets in her defense.
Last month, Indian women’s team captain needed to defend herself after a troller sweat shamed her.
She led India to the final of 2017 ICC Women’s World Cup. And since then, like many of her team-mates, her online presence has seen a huge leap.
