Mithali Raj has carved a new history in International Women’s Cricket. She became the highest run-getter in Women ODI matches, Mithali garnered appreciation from people all around the country. She scored 6028 runs and went past Charlotte Edwards who was at the first position with 5992 runs.
Not only this, Mithali has also become the first Woman to cross the 6000 mark. The entire Men’s cricket team congratulated her on Twitter and poured in good wishes. She completely deserves all these wishes!
One among them was Virat Kohli, who not only wished Mithali on Twitter, but also posted a special message for her on Facebook. However, in this excitement, Kohli didn’t realize that he has done a big blunder in his Twitter and Facebook post.
He congratulated Mithali, but posted Poonam Raut’s pic. He wrote, “A great moment for Indian Cricket, Mithali Raj becomes the highest run scorer in Women’s ODI Cricket History today. Champion Stuff!”
Unfortunately, he didn’t cross check her picture that he posted along with the caption.
Here’s the screenshot of Kohli’s Facebook post;
Here are some comments to his post.
This was indeed a big mistake and he should have checked it before posting. But it’s rightly said, “Mistakes are common to Human”. Let us not criticize him as it doesn’t seem intentional.
