We all remember how Bangladesh fans couldn't digest a decision going against them in World Cup 2015 quarter-finals. The game was against India and Rohit Sharma was given not-out because of a waist height no-ball.

Rohit went on to become the man of the match in the game for his 137 runs in the game. Bangladeshi fans weren't convinced with the decision and thought the Indian opener should have been given out.

We saw an extreme reaction from the fan after they lost the game. They blamed umpires for being partial. Jump to 2018, and the scenario is the same. It wasn't a major ICC event but Bangladesh was eyeing their maiden Asia Cup trophy.

A decision once again went against them where they weren't fully satisfied with. Bangladesh opener Liton Das was adjudged out stumped after a close call, which ended his knock of 121 off 117 balls in the Asia Cup final against India.

Fans were once again furious with the call and went on to hack Indian captain Virat Kohli's official website.
Cyber Security & Intelligence (CSI), a Bangladeshi hacker community also posted three photos on the official website. They even requested International Cricket Council (ICC) to take necessary measures against the umpire to maintain mutual respect among all cricket teams.

Their Facebook page shared a post that read: “We knew cricket is a gentleman’s game. However, every time Bangladesh faces injustice and to prevent it we are hacking into Virat Kohli’s official site.”

The website’s homepage and most features have remained unchanged. However, if someone accesses the gallery section of the site, the first three photos have been added by the hackers.
