The Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad witnessed one of the finest knocks in ODI World Cup history. Travis Head’s scintillating century helped Australia beat India by six wickets in the finals on Sunday, November 19. With this victory, the ‘Men in Yellow’ clinched a record-extending sixth ODI World Cup title.
Australia lost three wickets for 47 runs after being set a target of 241 by the hosts. However, Head stood like a wall and counterattacked with vigour to score a 120-ball 137 which made the encounter one-sided. The southpaw’s heroics didn’t sit well with a section of Indian fans as they went on the comment section of one of his Instagram posts and abused him. Some even went to the extent of abusing Head’s wife and one-year-old daughter in the comments section.
Absolutely vile and shocking. Indian cricket fans giving r@pe threats to the wife and daughter of Travis Head after the WC win.

Inexplicable instances like these have also occurred on a few occasions in the past. Unfortunately, some people are not able to digest losses and resort to venting their frustration in an unacceptable manner.
