Sourav Ganguly the Indian cricket legend and current BCCI president tweeted on India women’s heartbreaking defeat in the Commonwealth Games (CWG) 2022 final against Australia. The tweet was about India’s performance and congratulating them on a silver medal. Fans were not impressed with Ganguly’s tweet as many suggested it as was ‘disappointing’ to see the BCCI president tweeting the women’s team will return back home with disappointment.

“Congratulations to the Indian women’s team for winning silver ..But they will go home disappointed as it was their game tonite ..@BCCIWomen,” he had tweeted.

Checkout the angry reactions on the BCCI president here…

Australia finished at 161/8 as opener Beth Mooney top-scored with 61. Apart from the 74-run stand between Beth and captain Meg Lanning, Australia wasn’t allowed to break free as India conceded only 36 runs in the last five overs, taking five scalps. India were splendid in their fielding, making tight stops, taking brilliant catches and effecting terrific run-outs. With the ball, Renuka Thakur and Sneh Rana took two wickets each while Deepti Sharma and Radha Yadav had a wicket apiece.

However, chasing a target of 162 India kept losing wickets in the middle after skipper Harmanpreet Kaur scored a brilliant fifty. Ashleigh Gardner and Megan Schutt were top performers for Aussies with the ball. Schutt picked two wickets while Gardner claimed three. Australia were just too good for India as they are now the CWG champions and World Cup champions as well. India were brilliant in the semifinal but the Aussies were a slight better than them in final.
