Alex Hartley reveals online ABUSE over tweet


Former England international cricketer Alex Hartley has spoken about the online abuse she received after she posted a tweet about England’s two-day Test match defeat against India last week.

Hartley used Twitter to promote the women’s one-day international match against New Zealand after the England men’s team suffered a 10-wicket defeat in Ahmedabad.

“Nice of the England boys to get this test match finished just before England Women play tonight,” Hartley wrote.

Test opener Rory Burns responded in a tweet, that was liked by James Anderson and Ben Stokes, but has since been deleted: “Very disappointing attitude considering all the ‘boys’ do to support the women’s game.”

On a No Balls podcast with the current England international Kate Cross, Hartley insisted that her tweet was only a tongue-in-cheek but she has received abuses on social media.
