Australia clinched their sixth ODI World Cup title in a thrilling final against India in 2023, marking a moment of celebration for the team and their fans. However, the joyous occasion took an unexpected turn when an Australian media page posted a derogatory and insulting message on Instagram targeting the Indian cricket team.

The post in question featured a photoshopped image of Australian cricketer Travis Head portrayed as a mother giving birth, with 11 sons whose faces were morphed to resemble Indian team players. The caption, titled "MODERN MIRACLE," sarcastically described Head, a Craigmore local, as a "South Australian man with strong facial hair" who miraculously gave birth to 11 fully grown Indian cricketers. The post claimed that this unusual birthing event broke multiple records and left medical experts baffled.

Australian cricketers Pat Cummins, Glenn Maxwell, and former captain Aaron Finch reportedly liked the Instagram post, adding fuel to the controversy. Cummins even commented with four laughing emojis, further intensifying the backlash from cricket fans.
