The Indian women’s cricket team recently returned from Australia after what could be called a successful campaign by many. The team led by Harmanpreet Kaur battled their way into the finals and unfortunately lost to the Australian side. The Indian team was unbeaten and won all the league games when they took on Australia in the final. Interestingly, India had beaten Australia in the opening match of the tournament.
One of the key members who that squad was Veda Krishnamurthy. The 27-year-old has been a regular feature in the India women’s team for the past few years. During the World Cup as well, Veda played some important cameos towards the end of the innings to guide her side to safe totals.
Amidst the coronavirus threat looming over the country, the Indian women’s team is also out of action and not playing any cricket matches. But, it seems like Krishnamurthy, who is very active on social media, has not stopped voicing her opinion on social issues.
On Friday morning, the convicts of the infamous Nirbhaya rape case which took place in 2012 in Delhi were hanged. The four rapists had been on death row for a while and finally, the accused were given their punishments.
Historic day for India, tweets Veda Krishnamurthy
Veda Krishnamurthy took to Twitter to express her thoughts. She called it a historic day for India. She also added that she feels that justice has been served in the end. She replied to a tweet and wrote,” Historic Day for India. Justice has prevailed.”

Veda Krishnamurthy is in important batter in the India Women side. She is a senior player who has donned the national jersey in 48 ODIs and 76 T20Is. She was one of the first Indian players to be picked for the Women’s Big Bash League in Australia. The middle-order batsman played for the Hobart Hurricanes for two seasons in the BBL.
During the ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 in England, she played a breathtaking knock of 70 runs from just 45 balls. The innings came in India’s last league match against New Zealand where they desperately needed a win to keep their semi-final spot.
