In a surprising turn of events, Australian cricketers Pat Cummins and Glenn Maxwell found themselves in a social media storm after engaging with a post on ‘The Betoota Advocate’s’ Instagram account. The post, laden with humor, took a dig at the Indian cricket team’s loss in the World Cup 2023 final against Australia at Narendra Modi Stadium. The Australian players, including Cummins, reacted to the post with laughing emojis and likes, adding fuel to the online banter.

The satirical post featured an amusing portrayal of the Indian cricket stars, Rohit Sharma and ex-captain Virat Kohli, as hospital babies. The caption humorously suggested that a South Australian man, reminiscent of Travis Head, had given birth to a world-record 11 sons. The fictional narrative playfully detailed Head’s remarkable feat, breaking multiple records, including being the first man to give birth to two or more babies.

The crux of the post centered around the ‘Modern Miracle’ of a South Australian man, Travis Head, giving birth to fully grown Indian cricketers, raising eyebrows and leaving medical experts baffled. The narrative cleverly weaved in Head’s cricketing exploits, particularly his outstanding performance in the World Cup final, where he scored 137 runs on 120 balls, demolishing the Indian bowlers.

As news of the post circulated, it triggered a wave of anger among Indian cricket fans who took to social media to express their displeasure. The satire didn’t sit well with the Indian audience, leading to a surge of online fury.

In a parallel incident, an Indian in Uttar Pradesh lodged an FIR against Mitchell Marsh for a separate controversy. A viral picture of Marsh casually placing his legs on a trophy angered Indian fans, sparking calls for a ban on Marsh from playing cricket in India.
