'I have always been asked who's your favourite male cricketer but you should ask them who their favourite female cricketer is. The statement that made every cricket lover pause and introspect that do they love the game or the gender playing it. @M_Raj03 you are a 'Game Changer',' Taapsee captioned the poster.
