The Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad witnessed one of the finest innings in ODI World Cup history. Australia defeated India by six wickets in the final on Sunday, 19. With this win, the ‘Men in Yellow’ won a record sixth ODI World Cup title.
Australia lost three wickets for 47 runs after the hosts set a target of 241 runs. However, Head stood like a wall and mounted a strong counterattack, scoring 137 runs in 120 balls, turning the contest in Australia’s favour. The southpaw’s heroics did not go down well with a section of Indian fans as they commented on one of his Instagram posts and abused him. Some people even started abusing the head’s wife and one-year-old daughter in the comment section.
Absolutely vile and shocking. Indian cricket fans giving r@pe threats to the wife and daughter of Travis Head after the WC win.

Such inexplicable incidents have happened on some occasions in the past also. Unfortunately, some people cannot digest the stigma and express their frustration in invalid ways.
