Australian cricketers Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Aaron Finch, and skipper Pat Cummins faced backlash for liking a derogatory post about Team India after defeating them in the 2023 World Cup final.

After securing a stunning victory against India in the 2023 World Cup final, Australian cricketers Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Aaron Finch, and skipper Pat Cummins faced criticism for liking an offensive post about Team India. India, previously undefeated, could only muster 240 runs in their innings, a target comfortably chased by Australia in 43 overs, led by Travis Head’s outstanding 137 runs off 120 balls.

Celebrating their win, an Australian media page on Instagram posted a derogatory comment with the caption “South Australian man gives birth to world record 11 sons.” The post, which sparked controversy, drew ire for its disrespectful nature towards the Indian team, causing backlash against the Australian players who had initially engaged with it.

On the match front, Australian skipper Cummins opted to bowl first after winning the toss, despite a sluggish pitch. India began strongly with Rohit Sharma’s aggressive 47 off 31 balls until Maxwell’s delivery, brilliantly caught by Head, dismissed him, disrupting India’s momentum.Despite Kohli’s 54 off 63 balls, KL Rahul’s slow 66 off 107 balls hindered India’s scoring. Quick dismissals of Iyer, Jadeja, and Yadav saw India post 240.

In the second innings, India initially troubled Australia at 47/3, ousting Warner, Marsh, and Smith. However, Head’s spectacular hundred and Labuschagne’s 58* steered Australia to victory in 43 overs. Currently, both teams are competing in a five-match T20I series in India.
