Tigers observe fasting instead of party

 

Bangladesh made history on last Friday, as they came back from behind to make the impossible possible and pick up a brilliant 5-wicket victory over New Zealand in the do-or-die battle. [নিউজটি বাংলায় পড়ুনঃ ম্যাচ জিতে পার্টি না করে রোজা রেখেছিল টাইগাররা]

The next day, Australia also went down to England by 40 runs according to the DRS method which made sure Bangladesh were the second team after England to get into the semifinals of the ongoing ICC Champions Trophy 2017 from Group A.

But surprisingly, the Tigers did have no special celebration following their victory against New Zealand in the dressing room other than singing the ‘Aamra Korbo Joy’ song. Bangladesh head coach Chandika Hathurusinghe revealed it on Sunday.

“The holy month of Ramadan is going on. So the boys had so special party or anything in the Friday night. They just had a routine singing session of the song ‘Aamra Korbo Joy’, and then they observed fasting on the following day,” informed Hathurusinge.

Courtesy double centuries from Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah Riyad, Bangladesh cancelled out the precarious position of 33 for 4 while chasing a 266-run target against the Kiwis, and eventually ended up winning the match by five wickets with 2.4 overs still in hand to make up one of the most memorable ODI victories in the history of Bangladesh cricket.
