The hacker left his group’s deface page along with a message against The Board Of Control For Cricket In India’s threat to harm Bangladeshi test cricket status if the country’s cricket board did not supported India during International Cricket Council’s (ICC) voting over cricket rights. The message warns the BCCI against any step taken to harm Bangladeshi cricket team.

  • This is for what you wanted to do with our TEST status. Our Cricket is Our Pride! We Love Our BD Cricket Team more then our Life. This is the WARNING for Indian Cricket Board. Don’t try to overrule on our cricket. BCCI and ECB will face the ROAR of BANGLADESHI TIGERS soon. We’re coming to your CYBERSPACE. We’re Watching you. GOOD LUCK.

The deface message also added:

  • Cricket was a game of Gentle man. Then India came up & Its become a game of greedy Business man. We Hate India. Save Cricket Save Bangladesh ! W3 n3v3r f0rg3t ! W3 n3v3r f0rgiv3!
