Her photoshopped image on Google is going viral at the moment and the fans are furious about the same.

Ever since she has scored an abundance of runs in the ICC Women’s World Cup in 2017, the fans have been in awe of her batting and most importantly, her smile. The social media also declared her the ‘national crush’. However, the current controversy has brought up by one of the Twitter users whose account is with the name Chethana.

She was looking up Smriti Mandhana online and accidentally spotted her photoshopped image. For reference, the user also shared a collage of the original and the edited picture of the press conference the cricketer attended once. In the original image, Smriti has been clicked without makeup but in the photoshopped image, she is seen wearing kajal and lipstick even as her complexion has also been altered to the lighter tone.

The Twitter user expressed severe disappointment over the beauty standards in the series of tweets in which she also elaborated her points.
