The debate between who the better footballer between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo has been raging for more than a decade now. While some people laud the Argentinean magician, others praise the Portuguese superstar. Smriti Mandhana also seemed to partake in this debate online.
On her Instagram feed, Mandhana took part in a Q&A session with her fans. One fan asked her the ever-present question of Messi or Ronaldo. To this, she answered ‘CR7’, meaning Ronaldo.
Mandhana created history last week as she overcame the like of Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan to become the second-fastest Indian to reach 2000 runs in ODI cricket. So far, Mandhana has managed to score 2025 runs at an impressive average of 43.08 in 51 ODI matches. She has scored four centuries and 17 half-centuries.
