However, the tweets praising her beauty also invited criticism as many people felt that not appreciating her for her game and instead objectifying her on the basis of her looks and beauty standard is not the right thing.
Here, check out the tweets:
Sorry for bringing this to your TL, but wanted to point out this is how women are always reduced to their looks — irrespective of how good they are. I mean, Smriti Mandhana could wear a potato sack or a face full of makeup, if she wanted to. She’d still be an incredible cricketer https://t.co/5w4cIh86fc

It is not necessary to demean others to praise someone.

Ahmm, can we talk about her game first? Stop objectifying her! And let’s not even start on how wrong it is to pit one woman against another. https://t.co/MLrxDyxKHk

You can praise someone without demeaning the other!
Your validation doesn’t matter to women. They can be anything they want https://t.co/FzyB1cTXOt

Yeah, she’s a queen because she slays oppositions with the bat. Not because your filthy self objectified her. https://t.co/viuBemPSeA

In the aforementioned game, Smriti Mandhana played a sensational knock in the first innings of 78 runs. Team India played a thrilling draw against the England cricket team as Shafali Verma, Deepti Sharma, Sneh Rana, Taniya Bhatia gave a stunning performance.
Talking about the team, the Indian women’s cricket team will now lock their horns in a three-match ODI series, followed by a three-match T20I series against England, which will kickstart from June 27.
