Cricketer Mithali Raj Shut Down A Sexist Question And Twitter's All For It

Twitter is buzzing with several tweets about Indian women's cricket team captain Mithali Raj.

In a perfect lesson on 'how not to interview a sportstar', Indian women's cricket team captain Mithali Raj epically shut down a reporter for asking her a sexist question. During a press conference ahead of the ICC Women's World Cup 2017, the Indian skipper was asked to name her favourite male cricketer. "Do you ask the same question to a male cricketer?" Mithali replied. And her response is absolutely winning Twitter. A tweet about the incident by sports journalist Adam Collins has received over 8,900 'likes' and more than 4,900 retweets. Another version has received over 9,300 'likes' and more than 5,300 retweets. Several people on Twitter are praising the captain for her brilliant response.

"I have always been asked 'who's your favourite cricketer' but you should ask them who their favourite female cricketer is," Mithali said in addition to her reply. "Superb response from Indian skipper Mithali Raj," Mr Collins tweeted.
 
Twitter is now buzzing with several tweets about the sportstar and her perfect answer. Among them are columnist Shobhaa De, actor Iqbal Theba, singer Chinmayi Sripaada and many more.
 
And even though some people tried to trivialize the incindent, there were many who perfectly shut them up too.
 
The ICC Women's World Cup 2017 is slated to start tomorrow and India will take on England in their first match. Here's wishing the team all the best.
