    In an all time low for India, Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s 5 year old daughter is getting rape threats on account of her father’s loss at the CSK and KKR match.

    Cricket is one of the most popular games in India. It is also the biggest medium for bringing out toxic misogyny among men. And the latest example of such toxicity followed the Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders match on Wednesday.

    Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav were on the receiving end of social media trolling after CSK failed to chase down the target of 168 set by KKR at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium.

    While violent trolling and abuse of players (and even their wives and girlfriends) is a common territory from so-called “fans” every time their favourite team loses a match, the hate now seems to be spreading to children and minors.

    In a shameful incident, while hundreds trolled Dhoni, some tweets and Facebook posts threatening Dhoni’s 5 year old daughter also surfaced. And not just any threat, these were threats of rape and violence. 

    The threats appeared on Dhoni and his wife Sakshi’s Instagram accounts following Wednesday’s loss.

    People are outraged by this disgusting display of misogyny.

    After Dhoni fell to Chakravarthy for 11 (12) in the 17th over, CSK still needed 39 off 21. Kedar Jadhav, on the other hand, struggled to middle the ball, scoring an unbeaten yet snail-paced 7 off 12.

    The equation came down to CSK needing 26 in their final 6 deliveries. Ravindra Jadeja played a cameo in the match’s final over bowled by Andre Russel but it was too little too late for CSK as KKR emerged winners by a mere 10 runs.

    While this is not the first time, of course, that a cricketer’s family has had to face online abuse due to their poor performance on the pitch, This seems to be crossing all limits of decency. 

    Most recently, actress Anuskha Sharma, who is married to current Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli, was widely panned on social media for her husband’s poor performance. Not just trolls, even commentator Sunil Gavaskar took a dig at Sharma, claiming that Kohli’s poor performance was a result of lack of practice as the lockdown had meant he could only practice with Sharma.
