“Stop trolling families of Australian cricketers” Indian legend appeals

Former Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh has called on Indian cricket fans to refrain from harassing the family members of Australian cricketers, following India’s defeat in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup. 

Taking to ‘X’, Singh, who is a Member of the Rajya Sabha, said reports of trolling of family members of Australian cricket players are completely in bad taste. 

“We played well but lost the final to better cricket by the Aussies. That’s it. Why troll the players and their families? Requesting all cricket fans to stop such behaviour. Sanity and dignity are more important,” he added. 

His comments come after several family members of the Australian cricket team, especially Travis Head who steered Australia to victory against India, had been allegedly severely harassed online by various parties. (NewsWire)
