Yes, that’s right! A little girl asked the staff of the store to customise the jersey of the Indian cricket team and write “Mandhana” at its back side.
Ladies Who League shared the post with caption, “This is how the #WWC2017 is changing the world.”
The post reads, “The Women’s World Cup (Cricket) is being broadcast and I had the opportunity to witness how it is making a small but significant difference.
Was at the Nike Store yesterday when a girl aged about 10 years walked in and asked if the store would customise her Indian cricket team jersey, The player name she wanted was “Mandhana” (Smriti Mandhana).
She left everyone absolutely stunned. This is the first time anyone at that store including myself had heard someone wanting the name of a female cricketer on their Indian Cricket Team jersey.
Can only hope that this is the first of many!”
Well, the group ‘Ladies Who League’ promotes women sports and by sharing this post on Twitter, it has made it clear that fans are following women’s cricket as well.
