ODI World Cup 2023

‘Kaha se aate hai ye log?’ – Fans react as Glenn Maxwell’s wife gets hatred over social media for supporting husband’s team

Australia won the ODI World Cup 2023 final against India in Ahmedabad.

Australia secured their record-extending sixth ODI World Cup title in a thrilling final against India, and among the standout performers was Glenn Maxwell, who played a pivotal role in the team’s success. Maxwell’s magical double century against Afghanistan, despite battling extreme cramps and back spasms, set the stage for his heroics. In the final, his crucial wicket of Indian skipper Rohit Sharma added another feather to his cap.

Beyond the cricket field, celebrations extended to Maxwell’s personal life as well. His wife, Vini Raman, of Indian descent, shared in the joy of Australia’s victory. The couple had recently welcomed a baby boy, Logan Maverick Maxwell, into their family on September 11, 2023.

However, the post-victory euphoria took a turn when Vini Raman faced backlash on social media and received derogatory comments for supporting Australia over India. Netizens took to sharing memes and negative remarks in her chat box, prompting Vini to address the negativity.

Vini took to Instagram to share her thoughts on the matter, expressing disbelief that she had to state the obvious – that one can be Indian and also support the country of their birth, especially when it’s where they have been raised. She emphasized the importance of supporting the team her husband, and the father of her child, plays for, urging people to direct their outrage towards more significant world issues.

In a post-victory period meant for celebration, Vini’s response sheds light on the challenges faced by individuals navigating national loyalties, especially when connected to personal relationships. The incident underscores the need for respect and understanding in the realm of sports fandom and personal choices.
