One of the biggest games in India is cricket. People go crazy (in positive as well as negative sense!) because of their deep love with their favourite teams. On Wednesday one of the craziness could be seen after the match of Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders.
Social media trolled Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav after CSK failed to meet the target set by KKR at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium.
However, now cricket fans’ comments are not limited to the concerned player but it has reached to be spreading to their children and minors.
Along with the trolling of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, some threatening posts for Dhoni’s 5-year old Ziva also surfaced. Moreover, these threats were not normal but of rape and physical violence!
Some of the tweets that were against rape threats are:

The threats allegedly appeared on Dhoni and his wife Sakshi’s Instagram accounts following Wednesday’s loss.
After Dhoni fell to Chakravarthy for 11 (12) in the 17th over, CSK still needed 39 off 21. Kedar Jadhav, on the other hand, struggled to middle the ball, scoring an unbeaten yet snail-paced 7 off 12.
The equation came down to CSK needing 26 in their final 6 deliveries. Ravindra Jadeja played a cameo in the match’s final over bowled by Andre Russel but it was too little too late for CSK as KKR emerged winners by a mere 10 runs.
However, this is not the first time that a cricketer’s family has been trolled due to their poor performance. Recently, Virat Kohli was seen performing poorly on the pitch, but trolls were not limited to Virat Kohli. Kohli’s wife, Anushka Sharma also got included in the trolling. In trolling Anushka Sharma, commentator Sunil Gavaskar also took part saying that Kohli’s poor performance was a result of lack of practice as in the lockdown Kohli has only practised with Anushka.
