The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) is the only team in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) season to have not won a game so far. They have lost all the four matches until now and naturally, their fans are disappointed a lot. However, one of the frustrated fans, after RCB’s loss against the Rajasthan Royals pinged the former New Zealand cricketer and now the commentator Simon Doull to warn him for speaking against his favourite team.
This comes as shocking news for everyone as the Doull is one of the reputed commentators across the world and is known to keep the fans hooked with his job. Even this year, he is doing a great job and seems to be enjoying the season. He was one of the commentators on the panel and it is not clear what kind of an offending statement made with regards to the RCB team.
But he received a death threat message on the Facebook Messenger from the fan and warned him to not speak about one of the most followed teams in the tournament. Also, the fan added that he (Doull) ‘would be killed for sure’ if the Kiwi does that again.
Doull takes it to Twitter
Simon Doull, on Thursday, took to his official Twitter handle and posted the screenshot with the fan’s name clearly visible in it and the message read, ” ***** think about what are speaking next man. RCB is not a team who will accept there defeat dude so **** yoself man. Don’t ever comment about RCB. If you do that you will be killed for sure mate,” the message read.
The former Black Caps cricketer though was unfazed about it and suggested the fan to chill as it is only a T20 game. “Clearly Dharmish is not happy with me @cricbuzz. Not sure what I said but a Death threat, Really.? It’s only a game of cricket Mate. Chill out.. @ipl,” Doull wrote in his tweet.
Here’s the tweet:
