'Are you rooting for Pakistan because your husband plays for the country?'
Sania Mirza has been asked this question before every India-Pakistan match.
So, it doesn't come as a surprise that she signed out of social media, before their clash today.
Soo less than 24hrs to go for this match,safe to sign out of social media for a few days since the amount of nonsense thts gonna b said here can make a ‘regular’ person sick ,let alone a pregnant one🙄Later guys!Knock yourselves out!BUT remember-ITS ONLY A CRICKET MATCH! Toodles!— Sania Mirza (@MirzaSania) September 18, 2018
One of our biggest tennis players, is put in a spot every time the two countries play against each other, because it's impossible for people to wrap their heads around the fact that she can support India while being married to someone from Pakistan.
She has tried to explain herself in the past, but the efforts have only led to debates and discussions, which turn ugly more often than not.
For instance, on her tweet stating the futility of misplaced aggression, these were the reactions.
