Both Indian and Pakistani cricket fans have a reputation of breaking stuff when their respective cricket teams lose a match. There have been hilarious instance of fans breaking TV sets or burning bats, sometimes in public places forming groups.
Recently, however, two former Australian cricketers took to breaking TVs and computers after their team's series loss against India.
Former Australian players Dean Jones and Brad Hogg were seen smashing electronic equipment at a cafe in Indore following Australia's series loss against India in the 5-match ODI series after losing the third match of the series on Sunday, September 24.
Jones and Hogg were seen breaking computers, laptops as well as televisions in a local shop in Indore.
However, it was only in good fun as they were doing this in ‘Café Bhadaas’. This café in Indore allows its customers to take out their anger by breaking stuff.
“The modern day lifestyle brings all kinds of pressures, so such a place helps customers relieve their stress,” Atul Malikram, the owner of the café, told News18. "After the match was over, Jones and Hogg reached our cafe and broke items available here. They spent around 30 minutes after the match."
The store was opened earlier this year, and keeps various products such as TVs, laptops, computer monitors, glasses, cup-plates as well as punching bags. It also provides safety gears to the customers so that they do not end up injured.
Although the café charges its customers for breaking the things kept in the café, the Australian duos were allowed to vent their frustration free of cost.
The Indian cricket team will take on Australia on Thursday, September 28 in the fourth ODI at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
