An FIR has been registered against Australian cricketer Mitchell Marsh in Aligarh, alleging that Marsh’s act of placing his feet on the World Cup trophy offended Indian cricket fans’ sentiments.

Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh triggered severe backlash after a photo circulated showing him placing his feet on the prestigious ODI World Cup trophy. Following this incident, reports have surfaced of an FIR lodged by RTI activist Pandit Keshav at Delhi Gate Police Station, advocating for a ban on Marsh.

The image, initially shared by Pat Cummins, drew widespread criticism from media and fans, deeming it a disrespectful act towards cricket’s pinnacle prize. Expressing disappointment, Indian pacer Mohammed Shami criticized Marsh’s actions.

Additionally, the RTI activist petitioned Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to bar Marsh from playing in the country.

In a stunning victory, led by Pat Cummins, Australia triumphed over India by 6 wickets with 42 balls to spare, securing their sixth World Cup title. India set a target of 241 runs, with only KL Rahul (68), Virat Kohli (54), and Rohit Sharma (47) making notable contributions.

Mitchell Starc claimed three wickets, supported by two each from Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins, while Adam Zampa and Glenn Maxwell took one wicket each. Despite early setbacks, Travis Head’s exceptional 137 off 120 deliveries steered Australia to clinch the World Cup.
