With the Australian cricketer Mitchell Marsh seen disrespecting the ICC Men’s World Cup 2023 trophy by putting his feet on it after his team’s victory over India on 19 November, an FIR has been filed against him in Uttar Pradesh’s Aligarh on 24 November.
The FIR was lodged after a complaint made by RTI activist Pandit Keshav, who claimed that Marsh’s actions had offended the sentiments of Indian cricket team fans. Pandit Keshav even forwarded a copy of the complaint to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, urging that the Australian player should not be allowed to play cricket in India.
Marsh’s actions received heavy criticism on social media, with users suggesting that he disrespected both the trophy and the game with this gesture.
Reacting to Marsh’s actions, Mohammed Shami, the highest wicket-taker in the ICC World Cup 2023 (with 24 wickets), expressed his disappointment. Shami stated, “I am hurt. The trophy for which all the teams in the world fight, the trophy which you want to lift over your head, keeping a foot on that trophy did not make me happy.”
In the final match between India and Australia, Australia emerged victorious by 6 wickets with 42 balls remaining, securing their sixth World Cup title.
