The recently concluded cricket tournament Asia Cup 2018 was a bundle of surprises and thrill for cricket fans across the world. One of the most prominent surprising elements of the Asia Cup 2018 was the performance by Afghanistan cricket team. It left one and all in wonderment after beating the Bangladesh and Sri Lankan teams. After defeating Bangladesh, the Indian cricket team brought home the Asia Cup 2018 trophy and added another feather in its cap. The achievement seemed even bigger, to the fans as well as the team since Virat Kohli was not a part of this tournament.
However, Bangladeshi cricket fans are miffed with their team’s defeat in the tournament. And this has led them to hack Virat Kohli’s website and allege that India has cheated in the final match. The hacker has even demanded an official apology from the Indian team.
The final match of the Asia Cup 2018 was played between India and Bangladesh on September 28, 2018. From start to the end, the entire match gave enough goosebumps to the viewers. At the end of the match, Kedar Jadhav took a single and led the Indian team to the victory.
However, some Bangladeshi fans claim that India cheated in the match. According to these people, Bangladesh’s Liton Das was given out unjustly and that India won because of this unfair decision.
Taking their revenge, some Bangladeshi fans hacked Virat Kohli’s official website. Along with pictures of Liton Das, there was a warning that read as follows:
“Dear ICC, Didn’t Cricket use to be a gentlemen’s game? Shouldn’t every team have fair rights? Please explain how it was out? If you don’t officially apologize to the whole world and take actions against the umpire then get ready to be hacked every single time you recover the site.
And my fellow Indian brothers and sisters, We mean no disrespect to you guys. Please think about it. How would you feel if injustice was done with your team? Every single national team should be treated equally in the game.”
Apart from an apology from the ICC, the hackers have demanded action against the umpire and threatened to hack the website every time it is recovered. Here is how Virat Kohli’s official website looked after it was hacked:
Surprisingly, whosoever took this revenge targetted Virat Kohli despite the fact that he did not even play the Asia Cup 2018. During the tournament, the India team was headed by Rohit Sharma. In such a situation, isn’t targeting Virat Kohli unfair?
