Sania Mirza, the Indian Tennis star and the better half of Pakistan cricketer, Shoaib Malik was recently involved in an interaction with India women cricketers Smriti Mandhana and Jemimah Rodrigues in their double trouble. During the chat, she explained the reason behind her famous “Joru ka Ghulaam” tweet that she posted ahead of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup final praising Mitchell Starc.
Earlier this year in February, the 33-year-old Aussie fast bowler missed an ODI against South Africa and travelled back to his country to watch his wife Alyssa Healy play in the final against India. Interestingly, Australia Women’s won that match quite efficiently by a margin of 85 runs. Moreover, Healy was awarded the Player of the Match for playing a blistering knock of 75 runs off 39 balls studded with seven boundaries and five sixes.
Sania Mirza feels humour also sometimes brings out the truth in many things
While many praised Starc for his kind gesture to support his wife, Sania Mirza claimed if the same would’ve been the reaction from the fans if any cricketer from subcontinent would’ve done the same. The Tennis superstar added the fact that if Shoaib Malik would have travelled to watch her game then people would have trolled him saying that he is a Joru Ka Ghulam.
“Sure thing !! God forbid it would be a guy from the subcontinent, the guy would be called a ‘joru ka ghulaam’ in one second. good on you Mitchell couple goals for sure,” her tweet read.

As per Sania, she felt it to the bottom of her heart at that very moment and also recited that sometimes humour also brings out the truth of many things. “When he (Starc) went back to his wife to watch the World Cup final, and everybody was hailing him, I truly felt… I was trying to just picture Shoaib do that for me… hell would have broken loose if that would have happened.
“They would have said… he is such a ‘joru ka ghulaam’… ‘Oh…my god he is going and watching a women’s cricket match’. I just felt it. I feel humour also sometimes brings out the truth in many things,” she said.
