Disrespecting the Trophy

A leaked letter has called for Australian cricket World Cup star Mitch Marsh to be handed a 'lifetime ban' from the sport. The demand comes after Marsh was photographed with his feet up on the World Cup trophy, sparking outrage among Indian cricket fans.

Outrage from Indian Cricket Fans

After Australia's victory over India earlier this month, Marsh and his teammates posed for photos with the trophy. However, Marsh's decision to put his feet on the trophy while relaxing with a beer infuriated Indian cricket fans, who accused him of disrespecting their religious and cultural sentiments.

Fan Takes Action

One enraged fan of the Indian cricket team has taken the matter to the highest levels, sending angry letters to the Prime Minister and Sports Ministry demanding a lifetime ban for Marsh. The fan also suggested that Marsh should be denied an Indian visa and threatened to take the matter to court if no action is taken.

Backlash from Other Players

It's not just Indian cricket fans who are upset with Marsh's behavior. Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami criticized Marsh's actions, calling them "disgraceful" and expressing his disappointment that the trophy was not treated with the respect it deserves.
