Prince Singh / 20 June 2017

In an unfortunate news, an Indian cricket fan from Bangladesh’s Jamalpur area in Bangladesh has committed suicide after Team India suffered a humiliating loss of 180 runs against arch-rivals Pakistan in the 2017 Champions Trophy final.

As per a report in Dhaka Tribune, the deceased, named Bidyut killed himself by jumping in front of a moving train. The deceased, 25, was a food vendor. Government Railway Police station Office-in-Charge (OC) Nasirul Islam said:

“Disheartened by the match result, Bidyut committed suicide by jumping in front of a running train Sunday night.”

Pakistan lift maiden Champions Trophy title:

Defying all the odds, Pakistan thrashed the defending champions to lay their hands on the coveted title for the first time. The Sarfraz Ahmed-led side, which entered the side as the lowest-ranked team, had begun the tournament with a huge 124-run loss against India but avenged for it with a stunning win in the summit clash.

Riding on Fakhar Zaman’s maiden ODI century, Pakistan posted a daunting 338 for four in the allotted 50 overs. Zaman and his fellow opener Azhar Ali put on 128 runs for the first wicket, laying the foundation for a big total before Mohammad Hafeez’s 37-ball 57 run knock powered Pakistan to a massive total.

In reply, India went off to a disastrous start with Mohammad Amir wreaking havoc with the new ball. The left-arm pacer dismissed Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli in his first two overs before accounting for Shikhar Dhawan to leave the Men in Blue reeling at 33 for three. India never recovered from those early setbacks and was eventually out for just 158 runs in the 31st over.
