Australian cricket player Mitchell Marsh is pictured on social media with both legs resting on top of the World Cup trophy.
The Australian skipper Pat Cummins posted the picture on Instagram first. It then traveled to a number of social media sites. The move was denounced as “disrespectful” and he received harsh criticism online.
Marsh displayed his gold medal with both of his legs propped up on top of the trophy.
On Sunday, Australia took on India, the host nation, at the Narendra Modi Stadium. It looks like the picture was taken in the hotel room where the Australian team was relaxing and having casual conversations.
People immediately attacked him for being “disrespectful” of the trophy after the photo went viral.
Shortly after Australia won the World Cup trophy, the photo was circulated.
