Young Tigers to get ‘Water Salute’ reception
Young Tigers have taken away one of the greatest achievements in the country’s cricket history. Bangladesh is now the champion of ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup 2020. So naturally Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is arranging different program to welcome the team in home.
Although initially Bangladesh team was scheduled to return home in the morning, later it’s informed that the plane carrying the players and the trophy will return to the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport at 4:55pm in the afternoon. BCB will not spend too much time at the airport, thinking of the suffering of the passengers.
Players and coaching staff will receive the first reception through Water Salute. Water salutes are offered on the first and last flight of any airlines and aircraft at the airport. This special salute is also given during the retirement of an officer of the aircraft. But this will be the first to make such a mark in the country’s cricket.
Water is sprayed with fire extinguishers on both sides of the aircraft landing at the water salute. Different football teams are also seen making such a reception after returning home after success. France football team, which won the 2018 World Cup, Portugal, the European champions, had also got Water Salute after reaching home.
BCB will greet Akbar Ali’s team with flowers after the water salute. Then the cake will be cut at the airport, from there they’ll go directly to BCB. The Tigers will return home after BCB’s other events.
