Mayanti Langer’s (lungi / towel style) skirt becomes a butt of jokes on the eve of India-Pak match

While the whole of India and Pakistan was eagerly waiting for the India-Pakistan Champions Trophy match that was played in Birmingham, those glued to the TV sets could not help but notice anchor Mayanti Langer’s weird skirt on the TV sets.

Mayanti Langer’s skirt looked out of place, even more so, because she was standing next to the two finely dressed gentlemen – Ravi Shastri & VVS Laxman – who were dressed in suits.

The sports anchor was brutally trolled for her skirt, as Twitterati came up with some hilarious memes and trolls (with some calling her skirt a lungi, towel, and what not). I guess the rain interruptions and the one-sided cricket match diverted their attention and gave them plenty of time to write about her skirt.

Here are some of the tweets.


Usually Mayanti Langer has a nice dressing sense, but not sure how she got it wrong this day. Here’s one of the occasions where she is elegantly dressed.

Or was it a pre-planned ploy (to get noticed) considering it was such a high-profile event? What do you think?
