Last night’s Indian Premier League (IPL) match made both teams teary-eyed. While Shubman Gill’s magnificent maximum chase brought victory to the Gujarat Titans (GT), the Virat Kohli-led team Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) had to return heartbroken as this defeat cost them the entire league.

GT’s Shubman Gill’s second successive hundred runs became the catalyst in winning the game and obviously, that disappointed and angered many RCB fans. However, these people who call themselves ardent Virat and RCB fans couldn’t take the defeat with a pinch of salt and started flooding Gill and his sister Shahneel Gill with threats and hatred.

Like a happy and supportive sister, Shahneel posted a picture from the stadium after her brother’s powerful innings. But some RCB fans couldn’t watch them celebrating their victory.

People then went to Shubman and Shahneel’s profiles and started sending them vile messages and abusive comments.
However, there were scores of other people (and also some sensible RCB fans) who called out such toxic fans who couldn’t handle the team’s defeat and were sending hate and wishing death for the brother and sister.
That’s why i say RCB fans are the most toxic fan base in IPL.
Unbelievable wishing something like this on a young Indian talent ! pic.twitter.com/4RMkClVsu1

Arey senseless fans, not everyone by the surname Gill is a sister of Shubman. And stop these stupid and silly acts. It’s just a cricket match.
Don’t spoil your lives by doing such acts.

It's disheartening to hear that Shubman Gill's sister Shahneel Gill was subjected to online abuse by trolls after Shubman's unbeaten century against RCB. No one deserves to be harassed or abused for someone else's success. It's important to remember that athletes are humans too,… pic.twitter.com/FRsj0oPITL

Disheartened to hear about the abusive and hateful messages directed at Shubman Gill, his sister, and the wishes for his death. 💔

By attacking Shubman Gill’s sister on Instagram, a section of Kohli and RCB fans have proved that they have ZERO understanding of the game and its spirit.
A woman is getting harassed because her brother scored a match-winning hundred.
How disgusting is this?

RCB fans wishing death upon Shubman Gill & his sister don't deserve to be part of this society. Hope they're arrested. Internet education is important.

Look at the tweets today for Shubhman Gill and his sister. Man this is why I hated when Kohli – Anushka pardoned that "IIT graduate" who gave rape threat to vamika. Some of these guys need to be behind bars and careers ruined. He should have been made an example to stop all this.

It's just a game. It's never that deep. These mfs need to be put behind the bars. Mock/criticize the player if you want but to bring their families is absolutely bottom tier shit that'd have some strict consequences. https://t.co/mg6RMk6CM0

One of the main reason I can’t stand RCB and hope they never win the trophy is cause of their toxic fan base. Abusing Gill and now his sister and all Gill did was his job for the team that employs him.

Here’s a true blue cricketer AB de Villiers showing all these annoying people how to take defeat like a gentleman.
Tough pill to swallow. Well tried RCB. Shubman Gill and the Titans simply too good today

It’s indeed disheartening to learn that your favorite cricket team will no longer step on the field to play another match until next season. However, people who get involved in any game without sportsman spirit and with such a sick mentality should simply stop watching the sport altogether.
