Last month, the Indian Cricket Team lost to Pakistan Cricket Team in the ICC T20 World Cup tournament. It was the first time India lost a match to Pakistan in a World Cup. Following the loss, Indian pacer Mohammed Shami was abused by some people online for bowling an expensive death over.

Several Indian cricketers including Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir, Irfan Pathan and Virender Sehwag came out in support of Shami as well. Also, the Pakistan wicketkeeper-batter Mohammed Rizwan has voiced out supporting the Indian pacer. Finally, the Indian skipper Virat Kohli broke his silence and stated that attacking someone over religion is a pathetic thing.

His comments created a stir and many netizens started targetting the skip following his statement. Then, Indian fans directed angry messages at him and his wife, Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma. Some of them left rape threats to the 10-month-old daughter of the Indian captain. Kohli's manager had filed a police complaint against the rape threat, posted from an anonymous handle.

The Delhi Commission of Women had also sent a notice to the Delhi Police about the threat against the toddler.
