India is a cricket passionate nation with emotions of a huge number of fans involved. The most followed sports in the country brings the people together irrespective of their faith, caste, or language.
But there is a negative side of this widely followed sports which is vile and can't be ignored. The toxicity among fanbases has reached new heights and those who have spent time and observed various social media platforms would know how things escalate.
