Cricket Australia have received complaints from national cricketers over getting death and rape threats from the Indian fans after the final of the ICC World Cup 2023. With Australia’s six-wicket win over the host nation, the fans of the Men in Blue went to the social media accounts of cricketers to vent out their anger.
Travis Head, who slammed a blistering hundred at the Narendra Modi Stadium, was the most targeted Aussie cricketer on social media. His wife and child were abused and threatened.
Glenn Maxwell’s wife Vini Raman, who has roots in Chennai, also became the target, but decided to hit back at the trolls.
Head is the first player in World Cup history to score a century while chasing a total.
