A day after Australia thrashed India and clocked a six-wicket victory in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup final, Vini Raman hit back at trolls who sent her abusive messages. Raman, married to Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell, put out an Instagram post, hitting back at trolls after receiving abusive messages from them following India’s loss in the final at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday.
The 30-year-old pharmacist, who was raised in Australia after her parents moved there in the early ’90s – married the Australian cricketer in 2022. Earlier in September this year, they became parents to a baby boy – Logan Maverick Maxwell.
Raman, an Australian-Tamil, took to Instagram and slammed trolls who abused her with derogatory messages for supporting Australia. Offended by the messages, she wrote: “Can’t believe this needs to be said BUT you can be Indian and also support the country of your birth where you have been raised and more importantly the team your husband + father of your child plays in #nobrainer.”

She also urged them to relax and channel that energy in addressing world isssues. “Take a chill pill and direct that outrage towards more important world issues,” she wrote.
Australia stunned Team India as they registered a 6-wicket win in the final to clinch their sixth World Cup title.
They won the toss and decided to field first. The squad led by Pat Cummins bowled out India for a humble total of 240 runs that saw half-centuries from KL Rahul and Virat Kohli. Aussie left-arm pacer Mitchell Starc scalped 3 wickets while Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood claimed two wickets each.
Australia chased down the target in 43 overs with six wickets in hand. After a shaky start at 47 for 3, a steady innings by Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne made sure that the visitors had the last word.
