It's no secret that cricket is a religion in India. And after India's consecutive loss at the ongoing T20 World Cup series, captain Virat Kohli was subjected to excessive abuse online.

But now, people have come out in his support, with fans talking about how a few matches do not define a person's career: 

Kohli isn't the only cricketer to receive abuse online. Fellow cricketer Mohammad Shami was also viciously trolled after India's loss, and Kohli stood up for him. In fact, in a despicable act, Kohli's 10-month-old daughter was issued rape threats as well. While it's understandable to feel upset over losing the match, it's important to remember that abusing and trolling someone is never acceptable.
