"Absolutely disgusting" - Maxwell slams trolls attacking RCB players

Christian and his wife were subjected to online abuse after the Australian allrounder had a day to forget against KKR

Royal Challengers Bangalore allrounder Glenn Maxwell has hit back at online trolls for abusing him, his teammates and their families after RCB lost to Kolkata Knight Riders in the Eliminator on Monday (October 11). Dan Christian and his wife, in particular, were subjected to online abuse after the Australian allrounder had a day to forget on the field.

"Great season by RCB, unfortunately we fell well short of where we thought we should be. Doesn’t take away from an amazing season. Some of the garbage that has been flowing on social media is absolutely disgusting. We are human beings who are giving out best each and every day. Try being a decent person maybe instead of spreading abuse," Maxwell wrote in a social media post.

"Thank you to the Real fans that shared love and appreciation for the players giving their all! Unfortunately, there are some horrible people out there that make social media a horrible place to be. It is unacceptable!!! Please don’t be like them!!!

"If you comment abuse on one of my team-mates/friends' social media with negative/abusive rubbish, you will be blocked by everyone. What is the point of being a terrible person? There is no excuse."

Virat Kohli's tenure as captain of the Bangalore-based franchise ended without an IPL triumph. Kolkata managed to restrict Bangalore to just 138/7 after Devdutt Padikkal and Kohli put on 49 runs in five overs. Sunil Narine claimed four wickets including the likes of Kohli, Maxwell and AB de Villiers, as Bangalore eventually lost the game by four wickets. 

Meanwhile, Christian was smoked for three sixes in one over by Narine and that helped Kolkata turn the game in their favour.  The 38-year-old scored nine runs and then conceded 29 off 10 deliveries in the all-important game. Christian too requested all the fans to leave his wife out of this mess.

"Check out the comments section of my partner's Instagram post. I didn’t have a great game tonight, but that’s sport. However please leave her out of it," he posted on Instagram.
