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.
Virat Kohli bags all honors at ICC Awards 2017 Despite a heart-crushing defeat against South Africa, Indian Captain Kohli can feel proud as he was named the ICC Cricketer of the Year and he also bagged the Top honors for ODI players in the ICC Annual Awards.
