Ahead of Indo-Pak Dubai blockbuster, Sania Mirza logs off from Twitter to keep trolls away
The Indian tennis star, who is in the family way, is clearly in no mood for 'nonsense'.
The tennis star, who is married to former Pakistan cricket team skipper Shoaib Malik, often faces the ire of fans when it comes to India and Pakistan matches. And this time, since Malik is also in the UAE as part of the Pakistan squad, Mirza is signing off from social media to avoid being an easy target for trolls.
As the arch-rivals come face to face for the first time in over a year, the 31-year-old who is expecting her first child tweeted, “Soo less than 24hrs to go for this match,safe to sign out of social media for a few days since the amount of nonsense thts gonna b said here can make a ‘regular’ person sick ,let alone a pregnant one. Later guys! Knock yourselves out! BUT remember-ITS ONLY A CRICKET MATCH! Toodles!”

But even this tweet wasn't spared, as people started taking sides almost immediately, some even predicting which team would win.

The two countries last played against each other at the finals of the 2017 Champions Trophy. While fans can't wait for this Indo-Pak match, Mirza is going to stay low for a bit till the frenzy dies out.
