Indian Cricket Team Lost The One Day International (ODI) Final: An Australian Cricketer Son-in-law of India


In games and sports like cricket, football, hockey,  volleyball, basketball, etc, one team will win by defeating another, so win and defeat are parts of games and sports. On November 19, 2023, in the final, the Indian team was defeated by the Australian team. Since the Indian cricket team won the Asia Cup and in this World Cup, they were undefeated till the final match, so Indians with great hope, desired that the team would win. Anyway, Australia played much better than India if fielding, bowling, and batting were considered. But the interesting point is that many Indians like me later on could know that Australian cricketer Glenn James Maxwell’s wife is of Indian Origin (that is Beti/daughter of India). That way, Glenn James Maxwell is the son-in-law of India. His wife is Vini Raman, born in Melbourne, Australia, on March 3, 1993. It is pertinent t to mention that the marriage was on March 18,  2022 (as per Christian rituals in Australia ) and March 27,  2022 (as per Tamil rituals in Chennai)mil rituals). Both wore Indian attire for the event, with Maxwell donning a Sherwani. By quoting the website, it is noteworthy to mention that "Vini Raman is a Melbourne-based pharmacist who was born and brought up in the city. She is one of the two daughters born to a South Indian Hindu household. Raman is quite active on her social media platform and likes to give a sneak peek into her life, which involves her beau, Glenn Maxwell.  She rose to fame after Glenn Maxwell attended the Australian Cricket Awards in 2019 hand-in-hand with his lady love. Her favourite pastimes include swimming, travelling, and watching matches live from the stadium". Although Maxwell is a well-known personality among cricket enthusiasts, his wife’s life is still not a popular name among Indians. So, a few lines are presented here about her as he is of Indian origin (source: Her parents migrated from India to Melbourne, and she has roots in South India. She is active on social media, with over 1.9 lakh followers, and often shares a sneak peek into her life. Vini and Maxwell were blessed with a male child named Logan Maverick Maxwell on September 11, 2023. So, Maxwell is the son-in-law of India and their marriage was performed in addition to Australia in Chennai as per Tamil rituals.

Although India has lost the ODI this time hope next time our team will win with super performance in bowling, fielding, and batting.
