Sania's Stand On Cricketers' Wives & Girlfriends

Ace Tennis star Sania Mirza, while speaking at the India Economic Summit, raised concern over wives and girlfriends of cricketers on not being allowed on tours along with their partners. She slammed at the thought of a woman being a distraction, instead of thinking her as a strength.

"Many times, I have seen in our cricket team that wives or girlfriends are not allowed on tour because the boys will be distracted. What does that mean? What is it that the women are doing that is going to distract the men so much?" Mirza asked.

"Having a partner is like support. They can go out and have dinner ... when you have your wife or your partner there it gives you love," she added. She further said, "Anushka Sharma is blamed if Virat makes a zero, like what does that have anything to do with anything. It makes no sense."

Earlier, many instances appeared where Virat loses a match and instead of focusing on the loss, people sulk on Anushka and ridicule her over his debacle. While Virat conveniently becomes a hero, Anuskha by default become the victim. On this, Sania added that "If we address the problem that a woman can be a strength or is a strength rather than a distraction or a weakness we might conquer these issues".
