New Delhi, Sept 1: India all-rounder Stuart Binny came under sharp criticism of fans during India's first Twenty20 International match against West Indies on August 27 after he leaked 32 runs in a single over at Fort Lauderdale.
Some over enthusiastic Indian cricket fans, took to Twitter to express their disappointment with Binny and ended up trolling his wife Mayanti Langer for the bowler's poor show.
Binny was introduced into the attack by captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the 11th over but failed to live up to the expectations of his skipper.
Left-handed Lewis smashed 5 sixes in a row off Indian paceman but his attempt for the 6th ended with just a single.
Mayanti, who is a popular anchor/journalist with a sports channel, became the latest victim of social media bullying after her husband performed badly during the game.
Some insensitive fans called her a "gold-digger" and used offensive words against the couple on social media platform.
Breaking her silence, Mayanti on Thursday (September 1) hit back at the bullies and silenced them.
This is what Mayanti had to say:
Senior cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle immediately came out in support of his fellow presenter and slammed one such fan for his derogatory remarks.
This is how fans trolled her
