Instances when WAGs of Cricketers got abuses on social media
1. Daniel Christian and Jorgia Dunn:
Daniel Christian, the Australian all-rounder who has experience of playing various T20 leagues all over the world was added to RCB for a huge price tag of 4.80 crores in the 14th edition of the cash-rich tournament. He played a total of nine games and finished the season by scoring only 14 runs and grabbed just 4 wickets.
The Virat Kohli- led RCB team was hugely expected by their fans to win the title this year, at least for their leader’s last tenure as a captain, but their dreams got shattered when they lost against Kolkata Knight Riders in the Eliminator. Daniel did not justify his position in the team and went on to bowl an expensive spell.
This lead to the agitation of the so-called fans and they went on to abuse the cricketer as well as his pregnant wife Jorgia brutally in her Dm’s and Instagram posts. Christian and Jorgia expressed their grief by posting screenshots of the same and asked them to stop the nonsense. Some true fans apologized to the couple on behalf of the toxic netizens.
