In a live video message on Facebook Maksuda Akhter Prioty said, she was invited to the stadium by the Bangladesh officials so there was no chance of supporting Ireland in the match, though she had best wishes for the Irish team too.
“My jersey clearly identifies that I am here only to support Bangladesh. I was invited by the Bangladesh officials to come here. So obviously I will be supporting Bangladesh. However, I have best wishes to the Ireland cricket team too. But today I am cheering for Bangladesh,” Prioty told in her video.
