Recently team India put up a brilliant show at the T20 World Cup in Australia, as they reached their maiden finals. The Women in Blue lost against the host and defending champions team Australia at the final match at MCG. They performed fantastically with not even a single loss at the league stage. In the opening match, Australia was beaten by team India. They consecutively won against Bangladesh, New Zealand, and Sri Lanka.
Veda Krishnamurthy was among the key members of the Indian squad. The middle-order batter has been a part of the World Cup as well as other crucial matches in the past few years. At the world cup, the 27-year-old became an integral part of the team in taking the team to the finals.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak and threatening situations, the Indian Women’s team is out of action. They are not playing any cricket matches. However, members of the team are active off the field. Veda has been an active social media user, voicing her opinions on social issues.
On Friday morning, the convicts of the 2012 Delhi Nirbhaya rape case were hanged. The four rapists, who were involved in the case were kept on hold for a while and finally were hanged to death.
Krishnamurthy took to Twitter to express her views. She called it a historic day for India. She also added that she feels that justice has been served in the end. She replied to a tweet and wrote,” Historic Day for India. Justice has prevailed.”
