MS Dhoni, Taskin Ahmed, Bangladesh

Bangladesh is basking in glory they reached the Asia Cup T20 final. They will meet India in the final on Sunday at Sher-e-Bangla National stadium, Mirpur, Dhaka. In recent times Bangladesh has given India good fight even they humiliated India in an ODI series last year. But, Bangladesh lost their cool in excitement. A Bangladesh fan edited an image where Bangladesh fast bowler Taskin Ahmed is seen holding MS Dhoni’s chopped head.

This image showed how angry Bangladesh fans are over Dhoni, who in the last ODI series elbowed Mustafizur Rahman. But, this image has crossed all limits. Rivalry on the field is a great thing and fight on social media is tolerable. But, the image beheading Indian captain’s head is deplorable. This image proved that Bangladesh took cricket as a symbol of hyper-nationalism has gone wrong.

Although Bangladeshi captain, Masrafe Mortaza  recently in his book wrote that he does not take cricket as a medium of nationalism. “It is just a sport and it entertains people.”

Last year an image of Mustafizur Rahman’s cutter was made where every Indian players’ half shaved head’s was published by Prothom Alo’s in their supplement  Roshalo (crispy) to show the conditions of Indian batsmen while facing Mustafizur Rahman who tormented India throughout the series.

Bangladesh local newspapers are also printing all sorts of aggressive headlines on the super Sunday final.

The rivalry between India and Bangladesh has aggravated after the 2015 World Cup clash where the latter felt that a no ball deprived them a win in the quarter-final.

However, Mashrafe said, his team have already forgotten the incident. But, by looks of it, it seems Bangladeshi fans did not forget that incident.
