Bangladeshi hacking group, Cyber Security and Intelligence (CSI), hacked Indian captain Virat Kohli’s official website on 29 September and has put pictures to protest against ‘unfair decision by the umpire in the Asia Cup finals’, Dhaka Tribune reported.
The CSI hacked the ‘Gallery’ section of Kohli’s website, with a message which read, “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.”
In another post shared on the Facebook, the hackers also claimed that the group does not mean any ‘disrespect’ to India but are unhappy with the ‘injustice’ faced by Bangladeshi side. They wrote- “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,” the hackers further wrote.
The gallery section of the site had the following images added by the group.
Here is the matter!
On 29 September, India clinched their seventh Asia Cup title after winning a last-ball thriller against Bangladesh by three wickets.
In the final, centurian Liton Das was stumped by India’s Mahendra Singh Dhoni, but Bangladeshi fans weren’t happy with the decision, saying that it was too close. Das had at the time made 121 of 117 deliveries and had he gone on to carry his bat, could have ensured Bangladesh won comfortably.
The wicket of centurion Liton Das proved to be costly for Bangladesh as they slumped to a below-par total of 222 runs. India, without Virat Kohli, struggled in their reply, but Kedar Jadhav battled his hamstring injury to guide the Men in Blue home with an unbeaten 23.
