India cricket captain Virat Kohli’s website was hacked by Cyber Security & Intelligence (CSI), a Bangladesh hacker group, following India’s Asia Cup victory. The primary reason for hacking the skipper’s website was due to Liton Das’ dismissal which did not go in Bangladesh’s favour.
On-field umpire Rod Tucker had given out for Das’ dismissal as MS Dhoni stumped him off Kuldeep Yadav’s bowling, but that made Bangla fans unhappy as there was no evidence of foot behind the line.
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.”
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. India won the match by three wickets and in turn won their seventh Asia Cup trophy.
