Hyderabad. Sources close to ace shuttler Saina Nehwal have confirmed that the recent All England Open runner-up has postponed her birthday to a date post Cricket World cup. Speculations are that she was upset that she received very few wishes on her birthday few days back.
Saina turned 25 on 17th March. And she was expecting surprises and wishes from celebrities as well as fans on her Facebook page and twitter because of her historic All England Open run recently. But unfortunately there were none.
Media experts tell that the trending topic during that day was “Which moustache style will Dhawan don for the quarter-final against Bangladesh?” This topic single-handedly brought down the Olympic bronze medallist birthday news reach.
Another topic that was trending that day was the speculation about Suresh Raina’s marriage. Saina was upset that no one was talking about her marriage, even though she has turned 25. Not that she wants to marry right now but people talking about it gives a feeling of importance.
Friends who wished her for birthday were the players who themselves didn’t receive any wishes during their birthday, like Jitu Rai, Deepika Kumari, Srikanth Kidambi, Abhinav Bindra etc.
Some of the Indian sports fans were really angry at other Indians who support only cricket and know nothing about other sportspersons.
“She is an exemplary player. I don’t know why people do not have basic knowledge about Indian sportspersons. I’ve been following her since she won the WTA Hyderabad Open in 2003. But the only thing that I don’t like about her is that she married a Pakistani,” a fan expressed his anger.
When told that it was Saina Nehwal’s birthday, not Sania Mirza and then asked about his views on the former, he went haywire and started talking about Jwala Gutta instead.
As of latest update sources have told that Saina will postpone her birthday to a date on which nothing remotely to cricket could spring up and ruin the day for her again. That pushes her Birthday till the next season of IPL ends.
