Do you remember? Obviously you do.
Bangladesh did celebrate a bit much, when they got wicket of the dangerous BA Strokes on the second ODI of Rocket Bangladesh vs England Series 2016. BA Strokes could not take it easily and reacted in the field instantly. As well as ODI Captain Mashrafe Mortaza and Sabbir Rahman got fined and BA Strokes got warned for their action.
After all, it’s a game of emotion. Any team or, player can get over excited for their success. But, as a gentlemen’s sports, we should maintain the spirit of the game. Well! This are the bookish words. Real scenario is different. We really get crazy after hunting a wicket and celebrates like there is no tomorrow.
But, today we got to see a different kind of celebration what reminded us the the BA Stroke incident again. Today before Tea Break, England was 100 for none. In the final session, they got collapsed by only adding 64 runs more in the scoreboard and ended up the match with 108 runs win for Bangladesh, biggest in the history of Bangladesh.
In the 3rd ball of Shakib al Hasan‘s over, he gets past Stokes outside edge with a straight delivery into off stump. Stokes goes down on his knees and Shakib brings out the salute celebration!
Over the evening this celebration got so much viral among the social media, that most of the people were making this salute photo as their profile picture. Peoples from different areas of Bangladesh who were watching the match, posted their photos with a salute.
What was that? A reply to BA Strokes? May be, or may be not.
But at the end, we want to say, “Thank you BA Strokes! Please, come again.”
