A hacking group that itself named Cyber Security and Intelligence (CSI) hacked the website of Virat Kohli. They posted images of the close calls during the game that ruled against Bangladesh by the umpiring officials.

During the final of the tournament, Liton Das, who scored century was dismissed in the stumping fashion. At the time of Mahendra Singh Dhoni dislodging the bails, the batsman was right on the crease thus making the decision tough for the umpires.

However, after a lengthy look at the replays, the umpires adjudged it in the favour of the Indian team. The wicket dented Bangladesh team to score par total on the board.

Hackers demand an Apology:

As per the lines on the Dhaka Tribune, the hackers group would like to get the answers for their questions in order to stop doing the same practice. Interestingly, they opted to hack gallery section and posted their message via pictures in it.

“Dear ICC, Didn’t Cricket use to be a gentlemen’s game? Shouldn’t every team have fair rights? Please explain how it was out? If you don’t officially apologize to the whole world and take actions against the umpire then get ready to be hacked every single time you recover the site,” the message read.

“And my fellow Indian brothers and sisters, We mean no disrespect to you guys. Please think about it. How would you feel if injustice was done with your team? Every single national team should be treated equally in the game,” the message further read.

However, things like hacking have become a common scenario in the recent past. But, the latest hacking of Virat Kohli’s website is something weird which needs to be addressed as quickly as possible.

Coming to the Asia Cup 2018 final, the game went down to the wire with Indians winning the game in the last ball of the innings. Bangladesh has got the moments to win the game but Indians were smart enough to grab a hold of it.
