Sports presenter Mayanti Langer has often become a target for trolls on social media due to poor performance of her husband and Rajasthan cricketer Stuart Binny in the Indian Premier League (IPL). 

Binny, who plays for Rajasthan, smashed an unbeaten 33 runs in 11 balls against Punjab, to take Rajasthan close to victory. But it was not enough for Rajasthan to seal a victory. 
 
Despite Binny's blistering knock, wife Langer was again at the receiving end with Twitter users asking where her husband is?

Mayanti came up with a befitting reply and said that she is sorry that the troll missed Binny's splendid innings against Punjab.

As far as the match is concerned, Punjab rode on a half-century by KL Rahul and a couple of sixes by skipper Ravichandran Ashwin to post a competitive 182 for six.

Rajasthan managed to score 170 for seven in their 20 overs and suffered a 12-runs defeat in Mohali.

After this win, Punjab grabbed the fourth spot in the points table with 10 points to keep playoff hopes alive.
