Chennai: Mithali Raj responded to a troll who had criticised her over her language preference on social media
The Twitter user in question alleged that Mithali Raj doesn't know 'Tamil' but prefers Hindi, English and Telugu over her mother tongue.
Mithali Raj hit back at the Twitter user with a classy tweet in which she said she is fluent in her mother tongue 'Tamil' and that constant criticism on social media doesn't discourage her, but only serves as a motivation.
"Tamil is my mother tongue. I speak Tamil well and I am proud to be a Tamilian. But above it all, I am very proud Indian ! Also my dear sugu ,you constant criticism on each and every post of mine ,you day to day advice on how and what I should do is exactly what keeps me going."
