In the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 match between India vs Bangladesh, there was some unfriendliness even before the game began. , Fans of Bangladesh was the reason to kindle this hostility .Bangladesh fans had designed out a provocative cartoon that showed a Tiger draped with the Bangladesh flag which chases a Dog that was draped with an Indian flag. This gave the contest a tint of anger feel even before a ball was bowled.
In the semi-final match which was held Edgbaston, Virat Kohli won the toss and was chosen to bowl. Sabbir Rahman, who was batting at No.3, was given a quick bye but Bangladesh chased it with Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim with flying fifties. Tamim for 70 and Rahim for 61.
The wicket of Rahim, in particular, made Kohli celebrate even more. The batsman toe-ended a full toss to mid wicket where the Indian skipper took the wonderful catch and celebrated with an expression by sticking out his tongue and jumping out of joy. His expression became so viral soon became a popular meme on social media platform and Twitter users had a field day.
However, Kohli’s ‘tongue’-in-cheek celebration together all made up the perfect day for the Indian cricket team.
Indian players not worried about losing ICC Champions Trophy Sources have stated that the India vs Pakistan final at the ICC Champions Trophy ended up being about as one-sided as most clashes between these two sides are, with Pakistan winning by a massive 180 runs at The Oval on Sunday, to post their maiden title win in this tournament. While the Indian side was understandably extremely disappointed, Team India skipper Virat Kohli had won lot of for his sporting remarks after the match.
