Indian women’s team captain Mithali Raj scripted history against Australia in a World Cup encounter. With this feat, Mithali Raj became the first woman cricketer in history to score 6000 runs in ODI cricket.
Her counterpart in the men’s team Captain Virat Kohli took to social media to congratulate Raj on her phenomenal achievement.
Kohli posted: “A great moment for Indian Cricket, @M_Raj03 becomes the highest run scorer in Women’s ODI Cricket History today. Champion Stuff!” alongside an image of an India women’s player in action.
Kohli made a huge mistake as he put up a wrong picture of Mithali Raj. In attempting to post an image of Raj accompanying the text, he posted an image of another team player, Poonam Raut.
Kohli’s Facebook page was laughed at by avid cricket fans who pointed out the mistake. The post, however, has been taken down as of now.
