Australia's Glenn Maxwell and Dan Christian on Tuesday slammed online abusers following Royal Challengers Bangalore's unceremonious exit from the Indian Premier League.

Maxwell and Christian are a part of the star-studded RCB -- captained by India's captain Virat Kohli -- which crashed out of the cash-rich tournament on Monday after losing to the Kolkata Knight Riders.


"Some of the garbage that has been flowing on social media is absolutely disgusting!," Maxwell tweeted, calling the online abusers "horrible people" and their behaviour "unacceptable".

"We are human beings who are giving our best each and every day. Try being a decent person maybe instead of spreading abuse," he added as he thanked the team's "REAL fans" for their support.

Christian, 38, was clobbered three sixes in an over by KKR's Sunil Narine who also starred with the ball, bagging four wickets off four overs.

Earlier, Christian scored nine runs off eight balls. The 32-year-old Maxwell scored 15.

Fans took to social media to vent their anger soon after the game, even targeting Christian's pregnant partner on her Instagram page.

"I didn't have a great game tonight, but that's sport. However please leave her out of it," he posted on Instagram.

Superstar Kohli and his Bollywood actress wife Anushka Sharma have also been targeted by trolls in the past over the batter's on-field performances.

The match on Monday was Kohli's last as the captain for RCB, which has yet to win the IPL despite its stellar line-up.
