Taniya Bhatia robbery incident: Indian Cricket Board’s ignorant attitude for women’s team exposed once again

The 24-year-old wicketkeeper-batter is still waiting for a response from the hotel management about her stolen belongings

Indian women’s cricket team is in the headlines of social media since the conclusion of the three-match ODI series against England. Be it Deepti Sharma’s ‘Mankading’ run-out row or be it the robbery incident with the wicketkeeper-batter Taniya Bhatia in an England-based hotel. The batter took to the social media platform Twitter for informing about the unfortunate incident that happened to her.

The hotel management earlier responded to the tweets of Bhatia by assuring immediate action in the same regard. But later on, the 24-year-old reiterated on Twitter about the non-responsive attitude of the hotel management as they haven’t come up with any action or response in Taniya Bhatia’s incident.

Apart from the negligence of the England and Wales Cricket Board, the attitude of the Indian cricket Board is also something to think about. The Indian authorities have kept silent on the behavior of the management with their own player.

Here’re the tweets from Taniya Bhatia:


“I still haven’t received any response from the hotel management, @Marriott. This is quite disappointing. The items that were stolen from my room were both valuable and important to me. Has any action been taken since the theft? An update would be much appreciated,” reads the latest tweet from Taniya posted by her on Wednesday.

This apathy from the Indian cricket Board towards the women’s cricket team has shown how irresponsive they are towards women’s cricket in comparison to that of the men’s team.

Earlier, the young wicketkeeper-batter also tweeted almost 48 hours back about the incident that happened with her.

“Shocked and disappointed at Marriot Hotel London Maida Vale management; someone walked into my personal room and stole my bag with cash, cards, watches, and jewelry during my recent stay as a part of the Indian Women’s Cricket team. @MarriottBonvoy @Marriott. So unsafe” reads one of the tweets from Bhatia about the robbery.

This attitude from the Indian Cricket Board has also shown that they are not concerned about the women’s cricketers at all.
